    As of 4/15/2017 all new members or renewing members must have a valid NRA membership through Sept 30th of the following year. This means in some cases that a 2yr NRA renewal may be required. This change reduces the amount of volunteer effort to process renewals. If your NRA membership is not valid until Sept 30th, 2018 you will not be able to renew until you membership is extended with the NRA. Notification will be sent to those members who are impacted.

All current members except those without email address already on file (41 Members) must pay for renewals online with a credit card beginning with the 2017 renewal cycle (8/2017).  The 41 members who exist without email have been grandfathered and will continue to receive paper renewals.

Photos are required for the safety and security of the club members.  Photo shall clearly show the members face. No sunglasses/hats/head coverings etc unless authorized by SCCSFA Board. Those who fail to meet this requirement shall be terminated on 12/31/2017.

    The SCCSFA Rifle committee will be holding the first silhouette rifle match in many years on Saturday July 25th. This is a club fun shoot, bragging rights only for winning.

    We will be shooting official scaled steel silhouettes at 50 yards to make things a little easier on both the shooters and chicken runners (target resetters). This is an ‘any rifle’ match, the only restrictions being the rifle is 22 rimfire and you are capable of holding and safely handling the firearm.

    Shooters will register online for either the AM session (starts at 10am) or PM session (starts at 2pm).

    For more information visit Steel Silhouette Rimfire Rifle Match

    Registration begins Monday, June 29th- 

    10:00 AM Slot - Steel Silhouette Rimfire Rifle Match

    2:00 PM Slot - Steel Silhouette Rimfire Rifle Match

    Membership for SCCS&FA is has a membership limit of 1500 members. Over the past few months we have had several hundred new applications for membership, which have brought the number of current and pending members up to the limit. We can no longer accept new applications except from those already enrolled in orientation classes for July and August. Once we do our annual renewal process at the end of the year, we will see how many new slots open due to attrition. Once it is warm enough for mentoring we will open up for new members again in 2016. Thank you for your patience.
