I've got a little bit left over from my signing bonus with the new company, and I'm at the point where I need to stop being selfish and give back, so I've decided to join a pro-gun organization.

I've heard a bunch of people having questions about the NRA lately, so I was wondering if you guys fell there still the first group to join.

Just more info, I'm planing on joining the Texas State Rifle Association about a year after I move there.

Now you know where the NRA stands. Does that help your decision?

GOA is definitely more activist than the NRA. But the NRA has numbers. I became an NRA Life Member before the internet was invented by Al Gore, but they were pretty much the only game in town back then that I knew about. Today I would probably go GOA.

There was a time when I belonged to all three, but then I retired and money became a bit more scarce. Now my heart belongs to the GOA but in order to keep using my club range, I have to send my money to the NRA.

The only thing I can tell you is that if you want real results join the NRA. If you want rhetoric and empty posturing there are others.

Other things the NRA does (not even close to an all-inclusive list):
-Offers training classes for a variety of gun related activities.
-Promotes and is the governing body in a wide number of shooting sports.
-Helps with development of shooting ranges in the forms of legal and design advice as well as monetary grants.

There is strength in numbers. Get a life membership to the NRA and give one to a child too.;)

When I became an NRA Life Member, I started using the $ I would have spent on annual dues for other RKBA organizations. My wife and I are both NRA Life Members and we are GOA and Texas State Rifle Association members.
