How do I acquire two signatures of members in good standing who personally can vouch for my character on the application? Shoot in a league.
If you are not interested in shooting in a league that parallels with your shooting interest, you are missing the main objective of FHRPC. In league shooting at FHRPC you compete against yourself, no other shooters. League shooting is one of the best ways to “acquire two signatures of members in good standing who have personal knowledge of you and can vouch for your character”. You get to know several members and they get to know you. League shooting is open to the public because we are an NRA affiliated club. League schedules will be posted for the various leagues on this site early each spring.
