CMP membership

How do you get membership without joining a club? My closest CMP approved club open to all costs $100/year with a $300 initiation fee! Everything else is is high school ROTC programs. I'm 60, a bit old for high school.

Garand Collectors Association

The GCA is CMP approved and 25 bucks a year.
They also notify CMP that you are a member.
You also get 4 interesting issues of their magazine.
The RWVA-Revolutionary War Veterans Association is 20 bucks or 80 for 5 years.

Thanks, that's a lot better as long as you don't have to own a Garand.

Most of the State Rifle Associations are affiliated with the CMP.
Hunter education Certificate qualifies for the shooting requirements
Birth cetificate or Pass Port is proof of citizenship
Notorized form along with copy of drivers license for proof of residence.

Thar plus 595 will get you a SA Service Grade!

garand ownership

No you don't have to be a garand owner.
And owning a Garand is not for everybody.
I don't reccomend it for women,children or weak hearted people.
and they are seriously addictive.

As for the california club, CMP has a list you can check.

Okay, so wait - I can join the Texas Rifle Association for 25 bucks a year, and then order rifles through the CMP website without an FFL?

There's a bit more to it than that, but basically yes!
