    I still have a legitimate question....

    When a member of the NRA recieves and hands out a promotion like this does that member get anything in return when people sign up under his/her membership?

    My brother is a member but does not know. Can any other members answer this?

    I don't think the member gets any sort of 'kickbacks' or 'sign up bonuses' or anything line that...

    Thanks for the heads-up, this is just what I'm looking for. I appreciate the opportunity you've given those of us looking to join at such discounted price, and have already sent you a PM. This will be a great Christmas present to myself!

    Chevyman097, I've helped a lot of folks get the $300 life membership over the last few years ( wonder why I didn't get the offer to do so this year? ).
    The NRA has never offered ( or given ) me any gifts or any other swag for signing up new life members. In fact, after the 1st year, when I think we got a little of 80 people signed up, they asked that I cut back to about 20.

    One of the guys I sponsored for the membership surprised me with a Benchmade knife as a "thank you". That was really nice, but nothing fom the NRA.

    This offer is real. If you can swing the $300, go for it.

    Didn't the NRA give money to Harry Reid - that pillar of liberty?

    ErikO, and Alex23. Every organization does things that some people find repugnant. That goes for churches also. No other gun organization comes close to doing what the NRA does for our gun rights and support of the Constitution of America. I believe the last count was 70 million people own guns in America, but only 4 million are members of the NRA. Wow if the NRA did have 45 million members what could be accomplished?

    And that's why some people don't support those organizations.

    Lovie - I support the TSRA, which is NRA affiliated but more locally focused. I like the idea of the NRA but I know some of their lobbyist orgs and...well...sorry.

    Yep if you want a good deal on life membership this is the way to go. As stated by others the only thing the OP will get out of this is the satisfaction of bettering the firearms community.:)

    PM sent. Although new to the forum, I am hoping the op will be so kind to allow me in on this.

    Okay, which gun rights organizations (or any other organizations for that matter - churches, clubs, forums, etc) do you support that you agree with 100%?

    The NRA is BY FAR the most powerful supporter of your 2nd amendment rights. I don't agree with their actions 100%, but they're probably in the 90% range. If you're not a member and not active, you can be pretty sure that they're not going to pay much attention to your efforts to change their actions closer to your 100% point. Without them you'd have people like Schumer, Pelosi, and Biden controlling your 2nd amendment rights.

    Great idea to get this out here homers, wish I had thought of it!

    On the other hand, you can always just sit back without supporting any national organization because they don't do 100% of what you want and whine about it like the majority of gun owners.

    I've been a Lifetime member for a year now. Don't always agree with the N.R.A., but it's out there doing something.

    I got my 2012 Lifetime Card with this same offer as well. While I realize the need to increase membership, it kind of chaffs my butt that the $300 gets a life membership that cost me $1000.

    With that said, $300 is a great deal for supporting your 2nd Amendment Rights. I will take advantage of the discounted price to the benefactor level. That will chaff someone else's butt, I'm sure. ;)

    I don't walk LOCK STEP with the NRA, but they do a decent job at keeping the 2nd Amendment in the forefront of the national consciousness. I ask everyone to strongly consider adding your voice to this choir. United we stand. Divided we fall.

    Easy, the 2nd Amendment Foundation. They do NOT both attack my politics while asking for my money. I also support THR by buying from the major sponsors. Once the NRA-ILA decides to let their view of RKBA include those of us that don't vote republican I'll be happy to support them.

    I love how they give Bernie Sanders an F rating when he has fought harder than any other Senator for our collective and personal civil rights.
    Voted YES on allowing firearms in checked baggage on Amtrak trains.
    Voted YES on prohibiting foreign & UN aid that restricts US gun ownership.
    Voted YES on prohibiting product misuse lawsuits on gun manufacturers.
    Voted YES on prohibiting suing gunmakers & sellers for gun misuse.
    Rated F by the NRA, indicating a pro-gun control voting record.

    In the NRA's defense, he did vote for the AWB in 1994. Since that vote, he has not sought further restrictions on gun ownership.

    I've rec'd numerous PMs which is great; Just to let everyone know, I've decided to prioritize them somewhat giving first shot to those users whose accounts on THR indicate they have been members for some years and have actively posted. Once they either indicate to me that they've successfully upgraded to lifetime member or decided not to, then I'll start replying to those whose join date is today and have 0 posts.

    Thanks for your understanding and for those of you who I've PM'd my details back, please keep me updated on whether you've called and gotten the lifetime membership ( you may need to call 2 or 3 times to find an agent willing to do it in this manner since I believe I'm suppose to call or be on the call) or have decided not to (so I can give others the opportunity to).
