Membership Information


Abe Lincoln Gun Club is a private club and not open to the general public other than our CMP rifle competitions and designated special programs such as CMP Junior Shooting. Membership is limited to a fixed number of regular and Life members.

In order to submit an application for membership, a current Abe Lincoln Gun Club member must sponsor the prospective applicant. The sponsor is expected to host the prospective applicant as a guest at the club and must agree to take responsibility for the applicant’s behavior during their first year of probation should they be accepted as a member following a final interview by our executive board. Even with this rigorous process the club normally has a two to three year backlog of pending applicants.
