Grand Prairie Gun Club was founded in 1962. We are a private, member-run facility which includes Rifle, Pistol, Skeet, Trap, 5-stand, and Hunter Education. This site is our attempt to let you know more about us. Thanks for checking us out.


 

Club Information

Background: The Grand Prairie Gun Club was formed in 1962, on leased land. During the '80's changes to the property made it apparent that a new site was necessary. In 1981 a corporation was formed to find land and develop a new facility. In 1987 a 37 acre site directly north and adjacent to our leased site was purchased. In 1989 construction began and with the help of grants from Texas Parks & Wildlife and much free labor the new club site has materialized.

Current Facility: The current facility is on 65.076 acres of land and has 100 and 200 yard rifle ranges; 25 and 50 yard pistol ranges; one combination skeet and trap, one combination trap and 5-stand, and four skeet only fields. In 2003, we completed construction of our hunter education building.  This 4800 square foot facility provides a classroom, member clubroom, and restrooms. 

Who May Join: The person must be of good repute; a citizen of the United States of America; not a member of any organization or group having as its purpose or one of its purposes to overthrow by force or violence the Government of the United States of America or any of it's political subdivisions; never been convicted of a "Crime of Violence"; and will agree to fulfill the obligations of good sportsmanship, good citizenship, and will abide by the club rules and lawful orders of the club officers. The membership is on an annual basis, and members must renew their membership each year. Additionally, each member must be a shareholder in the Grand Prairie Sportsman's Development Corporation (GPSDC, the corporation that owns the land and facility)

How to Join: Application for membership is submitted by a GPGC club member to the GPGC Board of Directors for approval at the next Board meeting on the first Thursday of the month.  The application must be submitted with proof that the applicant owns or has purchased a GPSDC share (new shares are no longer available so shares must be purchased from a member that is no longer active). The yearly dues for the GPGC are detailed on the GPGC membership application form. Applicants must be at least 18 years old. A member in good standing is one whose yearly dues are paid current, and has purchased a share in the Corporation.

To apply: Contact GPGC Secretary Jeff Zwiebel or Club President Richard Kummer

Club Address: Grand Prairie Gun Club, 2330 Lower Tarrant Rd, Grand Prairie, Texas 75050-1815. Phone 972-641-9940, leave message.

Membership: Benefits of membership include the use of all of the facilities. Membership includes spouse and children under 21, living at home. Each member receives a club bulletin with reports on club events as well as other items of importance to the membership. Each member in good standing is provided with a membership card, badge, and a key. The key will open the front gate and the rifle/pistol range gate. Each member is required to produce his key and membership card when called on by any club officer, member, or law enforcement officer. The club is kept closed and locked except during scheduled activities or when a member is present on the rifle/pistol range. Guests are welcome to all facilities when accompanied by a member-in-good standing. Members are responsible for the behavior of all of their guests and must remain with them at all times when on the premises.
