I may not always agree with them, but they are our best option.

Both my wife and I are life members, being that she signed up first, she gets all the solicitation and I don't get squat as far as mail.

I intend to pay the bucks and become a life member this year. Politics being what they are I reckon we all need to give a little back so we can preserve our hobby/sport.

I'm just pissed at all of the caving they do. I give to GOA & The 2nd Foundation. Makes me a bit mad I gave them all of the life member money back when.

I was for a long time until the begging kicked in real hard to the point of my wife would hand me the phone and say it was the NRA asking for money again!

I let my membership ride a few years until I got a frantic call asking me why I had not renewed in over 2 years? I told them up front because of the begging for money, I explained to him that I had little money (at that time I HAD LITTLE to spare) He told me that he could but me on a don't call list and I would not hear from them until renew time. Well I renewed over the phone and mailed the check.

Yep with in 2 weeks I had received 6 calls for more money!! I stopped payment on the check and have not looked back since. My support goes for local things (in CA were losing anyways with no NRA progress) I wish there was an answer but oh well.

When I lived in NJ the NRA did NOTHING to help out us poor souls there. The GOA & 2ndAF did thats why I help them out.

The NRA is far from perfect but the way I see it is they are the leading advocate, spokesman and lobbyist for those of us who like guns, in any form.
'Til something better comes along, I'll stick with `em.

I am not and will not be a member.
Stems from Vietnam when as a member I got a letter from saying as a serviceman serving in Vietnam I didn't project the immage they wanted and returned my renewal fee.
They don't want me I don't want them

That was probably when there were some antis trying to infiltrate the NRA and were discovered before they done too much damage.

There are other pro gun orgainizations that you can join.

It is surprising, and disappointing to me that 35% of readers in this forum do not belong to the NRA. I certainly do not agree with everything that NRA does, but it is the one pro-gun organization that has significant clout in DC -- and that clout is determined by the number of members.

Shame on you who use annoying fund-raising calls as an excuse not to pay dues to NRA! You can simply say no.

...well, sonny boy, you can just send 'em a check in my name, then...if you feel so strongly about it...your "shame on you..." attitude shows us a lot about you...I DID simply say "No"...after being a member for years...
...they spent a helluva lot more sending me letters and begging than my membership cost...I wouldn't give my sons money if they wasted it like that...their "crisis-of-the-month" club got to be more excitement than I could handle...
