Ive been a member for years.There are alot of people joining the NRA and contributing money and basically putting their faith and our guns future in the NRA I hope they bring it and fight hard and dont let us down. I wouldnt be a member if I thought they didnt have my best interest as a gun owner covered. I guess we'll see.
It seems like the NRA would have more members. Most gun clubs and competitive organizations require all who participate to join the NRA. The club where I shoot skeet and sporting clay requires all members and walk in guests to present a NRA membership card. Guests who are escorted by members are encouraged to join the NRA. DCWC requires all members to join the NRA. I haven't noticed any compulsory NRA membership by pistol clubs.
Yep, NRA membership does make a great Christmas present. Every year I buy 1 membership for a friend or acquaintance at work most keep the membership going themselves after they get in it and start reading the magazine.
