    If you are an Easy Pay Life member of the NRA is it ok to buy and wear NRA life member appearal? Like a hat or a tshirt.

    I think it would be good to show support for them now more than ever but would hate to spend money on member stuff when I'll be a lifer soon enough.

    I say, "yes."

    You didn't pay cash for your new car or house, did you? But you can still wear a Chevy truck t-shirt, right?

    Wear the Life Member clothes. Just think of it as paying interest.

    You're free to do what you want, but I personally wouldnt (I just signed up for EPL yesterday).

    I waited, but I really don't see any problem with jumping a bit early.

    I waited also but as long as you fulfill your commitment to become a Life Member, I have no objections to you wearing the stuff now. There are probably plenty of people who wear that stuff who never were or never intended to be Life Members. I'm really glad I did it now. It has been 15 years or more but I don't get nearly the soliciatations for $$ that I used to as an annual member and I like not having to worry about one more bill every year.

    I'm an NRA life member and i can't see a problem with it.

    The way i figure it, you're a member and you can wear any NRA appearal you want. It's good advertizing.

    I was an EPL member until I paid it off a few years ago. Now I am a life member. I didn't wear life member stuff then but I don't see anything wrong with it. After all, you are showing your commitment to the cause. I say wear it if you want.
