Membership

Membership Fees

  • Our annual membership fee is $60 per year. Membership for Juniors is free. Note that our membership fee is IN ADDITION to ongoing SSAA ACT membership, which you will need to maintain separately.

  • Fees are normally due at the Annual General Meeting on the fourth Sunday in June, but new members pay a pro-rata rate when they join. Our Treasurer will advise what membership fee applies during the joining process below. 

  • You'll also need a range pass for the SSAA Majura complex. If you don't have one don't worry - you can pay with your membership fee (and pro-rata rates also apply for new joiners). Range passes cost $60/year, $30/year for pensioners, or $75/year for a family. 

How To Join Us

  • Attend an MFC introductory shoot for the sub-discipline you are most interested in - booking is essential by emailing mfc.act.dc@gmail.comNote that all training places for pistol have been filled for the year and no bookings will be taken until at least November 2023.

  • Join the SSAA. If you want to use MFC as your genuine reason for licences and or Permits to Acquire, you must set your home branch to Canberra (A01). Note that you can still be a member of MFC and shoot with us if you are a member of any other SSAA branch, you just won't be able to get us to endorse applications. You can join the SSAA and change your branch online at www.ssaa.org.au/members/membership/.

  • Email mfc.act.dc@gmail.com to request a membership form. If you wish to shoot pistol, your email should also request to register interest in the H Class probationary course.  Please note that all H class courses are full until 2024, but you can still shoot rifle competitions until then. In your email you should include the following:

    • Specify when you did your introductory shoot

    • Specify SSAA membership status

    • Advise if you already have a range pass - if not advise if you qualify for a concession or wish to purchase a family range pass

    • Advise if you already have an A/B (rifle) licence

  • Fill out and return the MFC membership form. Once we get your form, we'll let you know what the fees are for the remainder of the financial year.

  • Pay MFC membership (and range pass if not already held). Note that potential pistol shooters will not be allocated a place on the H Class probationary course or be allowed to attend an initial "safe handling" shoot (NSW residents only) unless you are a current financial MFC member.

 

If you do not have a firearms licence, we can help you obtain one. 

 

If you have questions, please contact the Discipline Coordinator Ian Jimmieson preferably via email mfc.act.dc@gmail.com or on 0407 397 317.
