    Hold on a moment...

    I wonder why it is addressed at "NRAhq.org" instead of "NRA.org" - looks like a copy-cat site to me fishing for your address, email, and phone. The front page looks like a "copy cat site" and redirects to the real NRA sites.

    I did a "WHOIS" search on nrahq.org and got this:

    Looks legit. And if it's just really well done, at least now we have info. And there's nothing particularly sensitive in the info boxes, either.

    Signing up now. I was going to have to decide if I used a little extra from this check for an NRA membership or a C&R license. Now I can get both! :D

    nrahq is most definitely a legit url.

    There is also the choice for multi-year deals that are a really good deal. You can get 2 years for $25.

    Good post, thanks.

    I signed my wife up. She'll be surprised, but in a good way (I think).

    I sent it to my step brother as well. I was just about to buy him a gift membership and this saves me some cash that I'll use on ammo instead.

    Why wouldn't they offer the same deal on nra.org?

    I think a phisher made that site.

    You guys might wanna invest into some ID theft insurance or at least change emails.

    It's a fantastic tool if it's real. It would boost membership immediately.
    Has anyone called NRA to verify that this is legitimate?
    Searching the NRA website, I see no link which leads to this offer.
    I'd love to pass it on, but wonder if it is real.

    I just emailed the link to some family members that I know will love the offer. I signed up my wife as well. I'm already a lifer.

    Ya i was a little concerned with a "free" offer but i did a search on NRA.org for "free gift" and a link to NRAHQ.org came up. So I give it a green light.

    A phishing scam that doesn't get a CC# is a useless one. If they really wanted to spam people, they'd just use the phonebook.

    Also, does anyone seriously believe that someone would start an exact duplicate of the NRA's website 12 years ago, constantly updating its information to mimic that of the NRA's website, and then all of a sudden, decide to go phishing for addresses and emails? If it were a fake, the NRA would likely have asked the FCC to shut it down awhile ago.

    And besides, NRA.org links to NRAHQ.org:

    I called the NRA earlier today and asked about it. The guy I talked to didn't know about the offer, but he confirmed that the www.nrahq.org domain is, in fact, the NRA's. He was a little confused though--he said he was under the impression that the NRAHQ website was accessible only to those at NRA headquarters.
