Annual Membership Dues

Annual dues statement are mailed to members each October, but you do not need your statement in order to pay your dues.  You may pay online at; by mail, by phone and also in person at the meeting. Please include your member number on the memo of your check. If your badge reads "2018" your 2019 dues are due December 31, 2018. Due to the volume of mail we receive, your prior year badge is always honored at the January meeting.  However, after January 15th, newsletters and other mailings will not be mailed until dues are current.

Firearms Safety REQUIRED

The fundamental NRA rules for safe gun handling are:
ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction. When inside a building, common sense usually dictates the ceiling to be the safest direction.
ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

The OGCA safety rules are contained in the Constitution / Bylaw / Rule Book. Members should contact us if you need another free copy.

Important safety factors include:
No person shall possess any loaded or primed firearm or air gun on your person or on the premises. Period - no excuses! This includes CCW. You will be escorted from the hall if you do not comply with the rules and your membership reviewed by The Screening and Enforcement Committee.
Inspect and unload all guns before you leave home.
All firearms must be checked, cleared and secured to make the firearm inoperable using plastic ties prior to member and firearm entering the meeting floor. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE TO SEE THAT THIS IS DONE.
Never point a firearm in an unsafe direction - act as if all guns are loaded.
All firearms must be immediately retied if removed for inspection.
Clips and magazines must be removed prior to entering hall.
All firearms brought to the meeting hall by members must be presented at the Gun Tie Desk at the entrance to be rechecked and retied if needed.
Tableholders must safety tie all firearms prior to the firearms being displayed, offered for sale or trade and prior to leaving them on a trade table.

Violation of any safety rule can result in suspension or termination. Do not risk your membership.

All state and federal firearms laws, and all safety rules of OGCA must be observed.
