    I'm considering applying for an nra credit card. I currently have no credit cards. I'm thinking it would be good to have for those emergency purchases (like my AR) and that if I'm gonna pay Apr it may as well help protect the second amendment.
    So I've seen mixed reviews. What's your opinions/experiences?

    The APR will not go to the NRA, it goes to the bank. NRA only sells the right to use their name/logo on the card. :eek:

    Ah very good input. Ty
    All the reviews I read stated it helped support the nra. I just assumed.
    So basically it just helps by advertising?

    If you are looking to build credit, get a rewards card and use it solely on gasoline. Pay the bill completely every month and on time. I think Discover has a card they are giving 5% back on all purchases (including gas).

    It's not so much to build credit as it is my club gun shop now takes cards. Dangerous

    It's all about self control. I use my credit card exclusively for points and miles. I don't buy more than what I can pay back. It just takes a bit more planning, you don't have to go over the limit just because you can.

    This, I average 2 free round trip flights a year solely on gasoline. Stick to your monthly budget, pay your bills on time, and don't carry a balance.

    I'm looking forward to the denial letter. I have good credit (debt card and bills) and a decent income. The only reason I can see for denial is that I'm disabled. Really looking forward to the letter.

    They wont deny you if you are disabled, the decision is based on income, bill paying ability, and credit score. Have you pulled a credit report lately? Maybe there is some flag there that you missed?

    I use CreditKarma.com to retrieve my credit score, it's free and it does soft inquiries so your score doesn't get hurt.

    If I wanted to help the NRA I would just send them a donation. Dealing with a credit company is like handling a rattle snake. You know it wants to bite you and eventually it will. That's just what it is and what it does.
