First time in about 8 years. Membership is really cheap. Did the 5 year, $100 one. I had to do it to join my local range. They check your membership status in order to become a member of their range. I was waiting to get sniped by CNN, get blacklisted, have the ATF kick down my door, or have god himself bring his wrath upon me. Luckily none of those things happened. So I encourage everyone to join.
