An NRA Affiliated - Non Profit Organization "A Safe Place to Shoot"

How to join

In order to join the Benton Gun Club you must attend one of our monthly meetings and fill out an application. Please note that no new members are accepted in October or November.  

We meet on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Hill Barn Event Center located at 100 Hill Rd, Bryant, AR 72022.  

Our Membership is a family membership that includes the member’s spouse and children under the age of 18.  

Applicants must be 18 years of age, citizens of good repute and share the same goals of the club. Applicants must also be a member of the NRA through the calendar year and be able to show their membership card or have a copy of their NRA magazine that has their NRA membership information on the front page.  If you are not already a member the club can sign you up at the meeting.

Acceptance of new members is the last order of business of every meeting. Prospective new members will be asked to stand up and tell the club a little about themselves and why they would like to join the Benton Gun Club. After all prospective new members have introduced themselves they will be asked to leave the room while the Club votes on their acceptance or denial of membership. Once your application has been approved at a club meeting, and all fees and dues paid you will be required to attend a safety orientation.  You will receive a card and key following the orientation. As a new member you can shoot each one of our matches for free the first time.  Just tell the match director that you are a new member and we will waive your match fee.

 

If you have question about joining the club please contact one of the club officers below.
