I can wait...
I'm sure it has been more than 6-8weeks to me. Maybe it's been 6-8months indeed. No big deal to me.. i can miss one freebie.

Good for you. They are the gorilla in the forest of 2nd Amendment activists and no other group carries anywhere near the strength of conviction or lobbying capabilities. I certainly don't agree with them on a step by step basis but I do totally abhor any infringement on the 2nd Amendment and negotiation or compromise is out of the question in my mind. To me the original Bill of Rights, and specifically the 2nd Amendment, has already been watered down way too much for my liking and if anything, we need to take back some of the lost ground.

The NRA is the only organization with the chance of doing that. I am a Patrom Member and will upgrade to a Benefactor as soon as the wallet allows, perhaps in March. At first the wife was a bit taken back by the cost and the organization in general. But as time goes on and the libtards continue to trade away our country and its future, and our constitutional rights, she has become even more non-compromising than me. I just hope for the day when I have the time to actually become more fully involved in the day to day NRA activities where possible, but until that time comes, all I can do is provide money and my vote. Those two things are assured, my State and US Senators and Representatives know that for a fact due to personal letters to each and every one of them. And although the inundation of mail for contributions at first irritated me, they now become a regular reminder to pony up $25 here or $50 there on a regular basis to the one organization that I know truly has clout in that cesspool of politics we refer to as our Nations' capital.

Rejoined the NRA after a lapse of probably 15 years, also dropped the coin for a membership for GOA. In September I may drop the coin for a premium membership here.

I joined this year and enjoy getting my subscription to American rifleman. I didn't have any problems getting my range bag.

Glad to see u guys have faith in your NRA. over the pond they are the cause of our increasing gun restrictions forcing home office approved clubs to pay to be affiliated to pay for their millions of debt through mismanagement and pandering to government policies and media scare mongering. We need a strong pro gun lobby who can stand up for shooters rights. At least you guys have your rights protected (although getting increasingly infringed upon).we have nothing.

Congrats and thank you Jon. I've been a life member since 1987, and regularly donate what I can. Glad to have you aboard.
Is it better to do the right thing for the wrong reason, or to do the wrong thing for the right reason? If you do the wrong thing for the right reason, is it still the wrong thing?

I've never feared death or dying. I only fear never trying. I am whatever I am. Only God can judge me now.
