- The TCA is a Civilian Marksmanship Program Affiliated Club - so if you are in the market for any CMP rifles or other items, your TCA membership meets that requirement.

TCA Affiliations



The TCA is affiliated with the following associations:


- Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP).  The CMP sells military surplus M1 Garands, M1 Carbines and 1903 Springfield rifles, ammunition and other items (subject to availability).  There is a requirement to belong to a CMP affiliated club to purchase riles.  Your TCA membership meets this requirement.


- National Rifle Association (NRA).  The TCA is an NRA member club.  We purchase our liability insurance thru their insurance program.  All club officers and directors are required to maintain an NRA membership while they hold office.  Club members are highly encouraged to join the NRA.


- National Firearms Act Trade and Collectors Association (NFATCA).  The NFATCA is the only association that works with the BATFE to ensure that the concerns, issues and questions of the NFA community reach the management level of the BATFE.  Our relationship with the NAFTCA was key to moving the West Hurley Model 1928 Curio and Relic request to a successful conclusion.


What's up with the Members Login Tab on the web page?  Why can't I login to that page?
