We are always looking for people interested in joining our organization.

Who Can Join?

We are looking just for SlugShooters, pure and simple. You have a shotgun, you shoot for accuracy at 50 yards, 100 yards, and beyond, this is your club. Deer Hunter, Recreational target shooter, hard-core BenchRest Slugshooter, you need to be in this group.
 
We have the background. We know the Ballisticians, the custom gun builders, and the loading technicians. If you join us, you'll soon know them all too. Some of the folks that show up in the Chat Room, and post a little hint in the Forums from time to time, may be the folks that invented some of the hardware you are using right now.
 
We'll even let you join if you use rifles and pistols to hunt and play with, as long as you keep that quiet. After all nobody's perfect. But someone who five-groups to an inch or less at 100 yards with a 12 gauge? Close enough to perfect for us. More than welcome to join.

Benefits of Joining

Members Receive:
Access to the exclusive SlugShooting Chat Room, for live interactive discussion on our favorite subject all day, every day, with all other members everywhere in the USA (and we suspect a few from outside the US as well)
 
Full time access to Slugshooting Members forums where events, equipment, techniques, and other aspects of the SlugShooting experience are discussed in detail, and information posted is available indefinitely, so you can join in, or just cruise for enlightenment by reviewing the variety of information already in place.
 
Competition opportunities not otherwise available to anyone in this shooting discipline. Competition members can test themselves against other SlugShooters anywhere in the Country, from their own favorite range, shooting under familar conditions and without the pressure of public events, with virtually zero travel expense.  For the first time a SlugShooter in Iowa can compete head to head against Slugshooters from Maine, or California, or even the other end of Iowa, and never have to spend any time on travel or serious money to do it.
 
Class Competition winners receive recognition monthly, when the competition results are published. Annual winners will receive additional recognition, trophies, and other awards that will vary according to the competition and the assistance of our sponsor members.

How Can You Join?

Since this is only the fourth full year for ASSA, we are offering one full year general membership for only $7.50, renewable at that rate permanently to our first 4 full year Flagship members. New members next year will not get that deal. If you join as a Competition member, your first year's membership is free with the purchase of your first competition target. General and Competition Members have Unlimited access to the Chat Room, and general level access to the Members' forums as well.
Special memberships are extended to Active Military, Law Enforcement, and other professional group members, subject to qualification. Some memberships include additional privileges and may involve different annual fees or other variable costs. If you are in what may be one of these special membership eligibility groups, please contact us for specific information.
To join we need a completed application and membership dues for the first year. We have made special arrangements for INSTANT Membership Processing, using PayPal for payment processing. See the next Column for details. If you prefer to have your application processed manually, please contact us for more information and a copy of the application.

Are All Memberships The Same?

There are a number of membership categories:
 
1. General Membership is our usual recommendation for potential members who want to learn more about the SlugShooting sport, have access to the Chat Room and most of the General information members forums. The low $7.50 annual membership fee applies.
 
2. Competition Membership is for the shooters. We give away the first year General Membership to Competition members when they purchase their first target, because we are working to build the Competition network and help make SlugShooting as popular as the other competitions in the shooting sports community. Maintaining competitor status by participating in at least 4 of the 12 monthly contests will qualify the member for continued waiver of annual dues. After all, if Cowboy action Shooting can have thousands of competition members, why not SlugShooting? Competition members also have Exclusive access to the Competitor's Forum.
 
3. Active Military, Firefighter/EMS, and Law Enforcement members have all the rights and privileges of General and Competition members, plus exclusive access to their own AM/LEO/FF Members forum. Annual dues are waived for these members, in recognition of their service to our Country and communities. Competition targets must still be purchased if these members choose to participate in the monthly competitions or Club Shoots.
 
4. Veterans of Military Service are offered first year waiver of either General Membership or Competition Membership dues in recognition of their service to our Country. All rights and benefits of General or Competition Membership apply, and Veterans have their own special Forum on our ASSA boards, accessible ONLY to our Veterans.
 
5. Endowment/Sponsor Membership is reserved for those groups or individuals who want to sponsor or contribute to competition events or awards programs in addition to our monthly/annual Slugshooters competition. Individuals or groups interested in establishing this type membership need to contact our Events Staff directly.
