In recent months the Riverdale Range has received an inordinate number of membership requests. As a privately run, volunteer facility we are unable to accommodate this volume of membership requests.
In compliance with our by-laws and corporate charter, at this time, we are only able to accept new membership applications from residents of Riverdale Borough.
Non-residents are invited to participate in our bulls eye leagues, Glock practice matches, NRA sanctioned events and other sponsored trainings. These events do not require membership and we encourage people interested in membership to attend and join in these activities.
Membership applications from non-residents must be sponsored by a current RPPT member. These applications will be acted upon based on date of application and our membership roles. RPPT maintains a 97% renewal rate and membership wait times can exceed 24 months.
New range memberships are only available when active memberships fall below a pre-determined level. Although any individual interested in membership is welcome to send in an application in anticipation of future openings, no response is provided. When the membership is opened to new applications, the calendar will reflect all scheduled new-member orientations. No other notifications are provided. Keep an eye on the calendar.
Initial membership applicants are required to be NRA members in good standing and have a valid NJ Firearms ID (or equivalent for NY residents). Once accepted for range membership, applicants must attend and complete an orientation and safety check in order to receive their electronic access keys.
In order to qualify for membership, applicants must provide evidence of one of the following:
1. Active participation in competitive shooting such as Bullseye, USPSA/IPSC, or IDPA.
2. Active and current law enforcement qualification
3. Completion certificate from an NRA basic Pistol class.
Otherwise the applicant will be required to safely pass a shooting test consisting of 10 shots on a full Police-L target at 25 yards.
The annual membership fee is $200.
For new members, the fee is pro-rated to July 1 ($133.34 in Nov., $116.68 in Dec., etc.)
New members must also pay a one-time initiation fee of $200 and a $20 refundable deposit for their security key. 7% NJ Sales Tax applies to initiation and membership fees. A check is preferred.
Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm - only as shown on the calendar. If no dates are shown on the calendar, orientations are not currently available.
Simply bring your application and documents with you at a scheduled orientation.
