The Hancock County Gun Club consists of 100% NRA members. Membership is open to all U.S. citizens. We welcome shooters of all interests and skill levels. If you are new to guns and shooting please read our new shooter page and come to a shoot even if you don't have a gun and want to watch. All we ask is you bring some ear and eye protection. Clear glasses and foam earplugs are fine.

To join you will need your NRA membership number and Illinois FOID card number, if applicable. If you are not familiar with any current members we would prefer new applicants to attend one of the public events held throughout the year to become familiar with current members and the club.  Please note only the applicant is considered a member.  While members may be accompanied by family, family members must be escorted by the member and may not use the Club when not escorted by a member.

We require all applicants to attend a club meeting prior to becoming members. Club meetings are held the third Wednesday of every month. A club event is held prior to each meeting that applicants are welcome to attend.
