    Hi all,

    Looking for sponsorship to Reading Rifle and Revolver club. I’m an LTC holder, 29 years young, responsible and pretty knowledgeable with firearms.
    Part of the reason I’d like to join is to shoot my 50 Barrett.

    Thanks a lot,
    Dan

    They frequently host matches open to the general public. Attend a couple and I’m sure someone would sponsor you.

    You can’t shoot over a 338 Lapua Mag on the 600

    50BMG is a no-go at RR. If that's the only reason to join Reading you'll be disappointed. I think Woburn Sportsmans Association allows 50BMG but don't take my word on it.

    Show up on Sunday, walk over the to the Club house. Bob (President) and a bunch of people are always there. Aproach them, talk to them, and someone will sponsor you. But you are out of luck for your 50.

    FYI .. at Reading, members can only sponsor one person per year and new members have to wait a year.

    The only other Reading member I know here sponsored me a few months back and I have to wait around 9 months to sponsor someone.
