Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

What do you consider little fee? Manheim Sportsmen's Association is $40.00 a year plus new member 1 tikme $20.00 fee and no mandatory meetings except one to join. They give you a pass key for the outdoor ranges so you can go in during shooting hours when no one else is there. www.manheimsportsmansassoc.org

$40 annually isn't bad - but I can't find any information on the website about what exactly the orientation is - What does it involve?

I am not a member, but the last time I was in the clubhouse, it seemed to me that it was a "social" club first and a shooting range second.

I was a member and I would have to agree with xotech's assesment. It is the main reason that I am a former member and not a current member. It is a good club if you are looking for a place to sight in before the season but it just never felt quite right as a regular weekly shooting place. Just my $0.02.

In that case it sounds like the ranges wouldn't be crowded most times.
