<updated 3/9/2021> Eastern Nebraska Gun Club Inc is once again taking new members with certain restrictions. Strict protocols will be followed when receiving a new member orientation briefing.  Any outbreaks of the UK, Brazilian, or South African variants of COVID-19 will immediately shut down new member processing. These variants are highly contagious and more deadly. Many Iowans and Nebraskans are still without vaccinations.

Beginning 10 Apr 2021, weather permitting, all briefings will be held every month on the 2nd (second) and 4th (Fourth) Saturday afternoons at 2pm CST (scheduling subject to change). The briefing location will be the range (12700 Hwy 66 Louisville NE 68037). Submit your application and other required documentation (See the 6 steps below). Once received, it will be reviewed and accepted or rejected based on submission of information. Your application may be rejected if incomplete or missing information.

You will be scheduled with the first open briefing date available.  IF you are showing any signs of COVID-19 and are scheduled for a briefing, please reschedule your briefing. The briefings will be held outdoors with masks and social distancing required and limited to small groups (10-12 applicants per session).  ALL new member applicants need to follow the 6 steps for applying for membership listed on this webpage to be scheduled for a new member orientation briefing. This is not a just show up type service.
