Club Structure and Membership
To become a PRMSC member you must also be a member of the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (SSAA). When you become a member of the SSAA, you become part of Australia's largest shooting organisation and join thousands of other people around the country in ensuring the future of shooting sports. Following that to become a PRMSC member you are required to attend on competition match days. The discipline or match co-ordinator will talk to you and help you to get started. Our priority is always safety so an experienced member will guide and supervise you during the course of your visit. You are welcome to shoot as a visitor on 3 occasions and booking online is essential, during this time it will give us a chance to assess your safety and suitability, and you a chance to consider if our club is right for you. In order to compete in handgun competitions you must be a full member and have undertaken our Handgun Training and Safety course first, but don't be deterred there are many disciplines to explore at the club.
First year Adult membership costs $310 which does include a one off nomination fee of $120. General Adult membership is relatively low at $190 per year. Range fees are a modest $10 per competition, and you pay as you go for consumables. After a years full membership you can opt for the Gold card, An annual membership of $330 which covers you for all range, competition and target fees, but excludes consumables like clay targets. We also have reduced rates for Families, Juniors and Pensioners.
Once you have been a member for a while and attended a few match day competitions, you can approach the committee and ask them for a complex key. If supported by the Committee (it is not a right) you pay a $25 deposit for the key for the main gate and we give you the combination for the boom gate to get into the club. This provides the opportunity for you to come to the club whenever you wish.
Shooting is allowed from 7 am to 10 pm 7 days a week. There is no casual shooting allowed when a competition is underway. The range is closed when we have busy bees. Once you are a full member, with a key, you can bring guests to the club but you are responsible for them while they are here and for their safety.
The SSAA runs hundreds of shooting clubs around the country and represents the interests of firearm owners, shooters, and hunters on a national and international level. Financial members of the SSAA are entitled to public liability and personal accident insurance for their shooting and hunting activities through SSAA Insurance Brokers. Members may also choose to upgrade their membership to the SSAA's $35 Gold membership option to receive $25,000 worth of firearms and fixed firearm accessories insurance. In addition to this some of the practical benefits of SSAA membership include complimentary access to the Australian Shooter magazine, The Junior Shooter magazine, SSAA National Newsletters and special report publications. SSAA members can also purchase some great merchandise through the SSAA store.
