One can only become an MSC member by submitting an online application via the process found on this website and by following the instructions and guidance found in this information.
Incomplete applications or applications found to be incorrect will be rejected without notification.
Applicants must have either a current Ohio CCW card, or pass a background check.
By submitting the application, the applicant states that s/he understands and accepts that the MSC can and will submit the applicant’s name to a third party vendor for a background check and that any information subsequently found will be submitted to the membership when the vote for applicant’s membership is taken.
Applicants are required to find and to identify two, current MSC members in good standing who agree to be questioned about the information submitted on the form and the applicant’s character.
Applicants must provide and maintain a working email address and continue to maintain a working email address throughout their membership with the MSC.
Applicants must be a current member of the NRA and remain an NRA member throughout their membership with the MSC.
Once the application is reviewed and the two sponsors contacted, the applicant’s request for membership will be either approved or disapproved by majority vote of the members present at the next regular membership meeting. When a waiting list is NOT in effect, those approved for membership will be contacted by email and given further instructions. When a waiting list IS in effect, those approved for membership will be placed on the waiting list and only contacted by email and given further instructions when a membership slot becomes available.
Only by asking one of your two sponsors to access the waiting list will an applicant be able to find his/her standing on the list.
