NHRPC History



Where is NHRPC located?

NHRPC is located in the rolling hills of Lancaster County, PA.
The physical address is:
589 Meetinghouse Rd.
Gap, PA 17527
Rt. 322 East to 897 South. Continue 2.6 miles to top of mountain and turn left onto Meetinghouse Rd. Continue 1/2 mile to driveway on left.


What is the combo to the gate?

In 2014, NHRPC moved to electronic locks and access badges. There is no longer a gate combo for the general membership. To open the gate, place your white membership ID on to the front of the Keybad/Badge reader. The reader will beep and the LED change from Red to Green while the gate/door unlocks. This same card provides access to the clubhouse and 22LR Only indoor range. The readers can only read one card at a time, so if you store multiple cards in the same badge holder please remove just the badge you wish to use.  

I’m a member of NHRPC, can I bring guests or family members with me to the range?

A member can bring up to three (3) guests with them to shoot on our rifle and pistol ranges. Spouses and children under 18 are part of the family membership and do not count as guests. A fee of $5.00 per guest is charged, which is deposited in the drop box (mail slot) at the clubhouse. The Guest Pass must be visibly displayed at all times, while on NHRPC property. The member is responsible for the behavior and safety of their guests while at the range. Guests must be accompanied by their host member while at the range. Juniors under 18 shoot for free, but are counted as a guest if they are not part of the family.
