Question: I am interested in learning how to shoot and would like to join your club.  What do I have to do?

Answer:  In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts one must have a license to own or possess a gun.

  • This license is administered/granted through your local town or city police department.
  • There are many common procedures that all must follow and sometime minor variations depending on where you live.
  • Everyone must take a "Gun Safety Course" from a Massachusetts State Police certified instructor. 
  • Many (not all) police departments require you to be a member of a gun club.  If you are interested in joining BRPC please see questions in this section concerning membership.
  • For further clarification check out the New Member Application Procedure.
