We Love the Sound of a Patriot Shooting!
To thank our brave patriots, both veterans and first responders, we have created this special discounted membership level. It’s important to not only show our appreciation to this brave group of men and women, but we also want to strongly encourage the participation of these patriots in shooting sports.
Those eligible for our Patriot Shooting Membership include any person who has ever served in our military, is a current or retired law enforcement officer, a current or retired firefighter, or an active EMS first responder.* As a special ‘thank you’ to these patriots for putting their lives on the line, we are happy to waive our initiation fee ($150) and give an additional $120 off any annual membership. Verification is required, please see a staff member at YGC or at Tar River Arms in Wake Forest for more information regarding verification for the Patriot Shooting discount and to purchase.
As a veteran-owned business, we are well aware that our freedom and safety is guaranteed by the brave men and women who put their lives on the line everyday. To say that we think highly of those patriots who shoulder the daily burdens of our society is an incredible understatement. We know that they are the heroes that allow us to live freely and without fear.
Additionally, by encouraging the inclusion of patriots in shooting sports, we are creating a community of people who can support each other and provide a safe and functional outlet for many of the stresses encountered during their daily jobs. It’s our small way of thanking those heroes that have given up so much for our freedom and safety.
