Access to the Range will only be available to Members who have completed the Range orientation. 

2. Membership is available to all persons who are legally able, at any time during the period of membership, to purchase and possess a firearm. Members must satisfy all federal, state, and local laws regarding firearms ownership at all times during any membership period.  

3. Memberships are offered on a twelve (12) month basis commencing the date of the initial payment against the applicable membership.  

4. Riflegear membership cards, if any, are and shall remain the property of Riflegear. The replacement fee for any lost or damaged membership card is $10 per card. 

5. Membership fees and benefits are subject to change at any time at the sole discretion of Riflegear. The Member will be notified of these changes through email at the most current email address the Member has provided Riflegear. The burden of responsibility falls upon the Member to ensure that RifleGear has a current e-mail address on file.  

6. Membership fees shall be earned in full upon receipt and shall be non-refundable in the event of termination of the Membership by Riflegear for any reason or in the event of your cancellation of the Membership except as set forth herein. 

7. Memberships will automatically renew upon the expiration date of the then-current membership period. The burden of responsibility falls upon the Member to ensure that RifleGear has current payment information and a current e-mail address on file in order to renew the membership. Members will receive an automatic renewal notice via email thirty (30) days before the expiration date of the then-current membership period. In the case of a failed automatic payment, the Member will be notified via email and the applicable membership will be disabled until all payments for the renewed membership have been paid in full. 

8. Cancellation can take place anywhere in the membership cycle (excluding Pro Lifetime). Cancellation of the membership (excluding Pro Lifetime) may be requested by written notice only to Riflegear at [email protected] Cancellation notices must be received by Riflegear more than thirty (30) days in advance of the automatic renewal date of the applicable membership in order to guarantee that the membership will not automatically renew.

If the notice is received after the 15th day of any month, the cancellation shall be effective on the last day of the next month. The cancellation fee will take the total yearly amount of the membership and divide it by twelve (12) months. This total will be multiplied by the number of months remaining in the membership after the effective date of cancellation. The Member will then pay fifty percent (50%) of that total remaining amount. For example, $750 membership = $62.50 “per month” X 4 months remaining unused = $250 total; in that example, the Member would pay $125 as a cancellation fee.  

10. At Riflegear’s sole discretion. the cancellation fee may be waived for members of the military who are deploying or being stationed elsewhere. Proof must be provided to Riflegear in this instance as may be requested by Riflegear.

Any additional membership fees due to an upgraded membership shall be due and payable in full by the end of the month in which the change in membership notice was received by Riflegear. Store credit shall be issue for any difference in membership fees due to a downgraded membership level, which credit shall be issued by the end of the month in the change in membership level notice was received by Riflegear.
