If you do not have a club in your place, you probably wont have a shooting range in your area. So why do you want a membership at all??

Because he may want to import a Rifle, he may want to practise air rifle shooting and take part in competition, he may want to apply for a license (some idiot bureaucrats ask for a membership, specially if you apply for an AL for target shooting).
And most important of all, if he is elligible, he has right to have a membership.

Ankur,

Another stupid rule being followed unofficially, LA is issuing licenses only for self protection these days. And a lot of people want a membership of a club only to import an AR, that sells at a premium (I am against that).
Take a membership only if you want to practice for sports purpose, or very soon you will see that like an arms license, membership of a rifle association will also become very difficult to get.

Ya due to restriction to obtain gun license, indigenous black market arms in rural areas are growing rapidly As for those illegal gun owners living in remote village have a maximum advantage to avoid being caught...

Atul ji,

I am also against it. But these bureaucrats are dumb and idiots who donot understand reasoning behind things. I dont understand what harm can a 0.177 cal air rifle do, if imported by a non member of a Rifle Club???
In a similar way, telescopic sights for mounting on firearms are restricted for import, however this also causes customs to confiscate scopes of very lower magnification, practically usable on an air rifle or 0.22 Cal rifle only. However tactical type laser dot sights are not restricted. (ref: ITC HS CODE 2012)

I dont jnow what to say???

Yesterday, I went to apply for a rifle and the guy on the counter of the Jan Seva Kendra was not receiving my application because I did not attach my 10th marksheet or Birth Certificate as a proof of DOB however PAN card, Passport, Voter Card and Aadhaar Card was already attached. These all documents are address proof in themselves still the executive on the counter, The Talati and the Mamlatdar were asking for a copy of latest electricity bill as a proof of address.....
Finally I went directly to the District Magistrate and explained him, after which they accepted the form.....
