I just joined after I learned of HR1022. I'm ashamed to say I hadn't joined earlier. Who else here is a member?

If you own a gun, you should be a member. Imagine an association of 100 million people. There would be no such thing as an anti-gun politician...at least not one that would admit to it.

It would be interesting to know the % of highroad members who are also NRA members. Maybe a polls in order...

The NRA is not perfect, but they still do a fine job of protecting the 2nd amendment.

Wife joined last year.

When we have two nickles to rub together, and there's not a gun trying to get my money, we'll sign up as lifers.

Just a reminder, though, there's this other NRA that does legal stuff, you know, the NRA-ILA, and that's a seperate deal.

NRA doesn't get to lobby, the ILA guys do.

That's a good point.

How much was an annual membership 25 years ago?

I have never considered a life membership because it seems pretty silly in that it would take some 28 years to save any money.

But if the annual cost is really much cheaper now than it will be in 25 years, 1000 bucks might be well worth it.

A Life Memebership through the link in my signature line is only $750.

Or $375 if you are over 65 or have any sort of a VA disability rating!

Technically, being an NRA member simply means you are supporting the teaching and instruction of safe gun marksmanship and ownership.

If you want to help protect gun rights, you need to give money to the ILA in order for money to be used in lobbying.

USMC - Retired
April 4, 2007, 04:48 PM
This is true, however, the NRA gets the attention it does because of the strength of it's membership numbers. Just being a member is a positive tool in preserving your rights.

BTW, do they send anything in the mail that says you're now an NRA member? I'm thinking that they don't if you're only an associate member.

For that same $1000 i could get two handguns or a nice AR. I am not, nor do I currently intend to join, the NRA. :)

But i never intended to buy a Glock either, and I did... so it might change. You know, if I find a $1000 bill fluttering down the street. Ill probably get flamed for this, but frankly, I dont see the benefit in joining just because there are dubious political benefits/activism. I dont see the point.
