Frequently Asked Questions

If you do not find an answer to your questions here, please contact the Club President or Membership Director directly for help.

What is the Privacy Policy of MRPC?

Basically, we collect your name / mailing address / email / phone for keeping in touch but do not share member information outside of the club.  501(c)(4) Non-Profits are required to provide a membership list to members under certain circumstances and it will contain (Name / Mailing Address) ONLY of members. See Oregon Revised Statutes 65 for details, specifically ORS 65.782.

How do I get a replacement FOB?

You must attend a New Member Orientation to retrieve your FOB initially and have your photograph taken.

Lost FOB’s can be replaced to current members who have a member photo on file for a $20.00 fee.

Contact the Membership Director for more instructions.

Who is allowed to shoot with me?

All guests must be accompanied by a member at all times, shall sign the entry book/waiver, and shall pay the approved “Daily Guest Range Fee” (currently $2/day)  Each member is allowed FOUR (4) “Guest Days” per month.

A “Guest Day” is any calendar day in which a member brings one or more guests to the club.

A member who brings guests more than 4 days per calendar month, will lose range access and have their security fob inactivated by the Security Director for the rest of that calendar month. 

Individual Guest(s) are allowed two visits to the club; after that, they must join the club to continue to use the club’s facilities.

Exemption: non-members in shooting matches and classes open to the public. 

How old must shooter’s be to use the range?

In general there is no age limit.   However, there is maturity and an awareness of safety and safe firearm handling needed.

Also a knowledge of proper handling of a gun, and how to perform basic gun functions, such as how to show a gun empty, how to clear a malfunction, and how to load and unload a gun.

Most ranges discourage, and some prohibit, youngsters from entering ranges. This is done as a safety measure against exposing a young person to lead. 

Certainly, I’d not bring tag along youngsters who still find themselves laying or spending time on the floor.

The younger the person, the more important it is to avoid lead, and pregnant women and babies should stay away.
