Membership is open to the public. Members must:

  • Have a current NRA membership*
  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Be a US citizen
  • Attend a free Range Orientation prior to applying for membership
  • Attend one club meeting per year

*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, 286-8449 to renew your NRA membership.

Membership Renewals

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.


Individual/Family Membership:

  • $125 per year
  • Includes one range key
  • Additional keys are $5 each

Discounted Dues:

  • Torrance County Law Enforcement: Free
  • Other Law Enforcement: Half dues

Dues Note: Dues and discounts are subject to change. These are discussed at our October member meeting.


The NMBHGC membership application is available in PDF format here. The completed application should be brought to a monthly meeting along with dues, your orientation card, and proof of NRA membership. DO NOT mail your application to the Club, it must be delivered in person at a meeting or range orientation.


The club meets at 7:00pm the first Thursday of every month at the Edgewood Community Center, 27 North Frontage Road, Edgewood, NM. An open Executive Council meeting preceeds the general meeting at 6:30pm.
