*The New Mexico Bighorn Gun Club is an official NRA recruiter. If you need to join the NRA or need to renew your NRA application, NMBHGC will receive $10 per new member or $5 per existing member if you renew your application through the gun club. Please contact Karma Whelchel, 505-385-4895 or Tim Schilling, 505-514-8100, to renew your NRA membership.
Members must attend a range orientation class once every five years. If your range safety/orientation card is more than five years old or if you are missing your card, you must attend an orientation class before you will be allowed to renew your membership. This is the start of the five year renewal plan that was voted on in October 2014; see the October minutes for plan details. If you have questions, please come to a meeting.
