    I responded to the survery saying that it would be worth a bit more for access to a neat web-based area, but this increase is MUCH more than I had in mind.

    I renew my NRA dues 5 years at a time for about 150 I believe. I don't see double that being necessary for my USCCA dues. I love the magazine and am excited to get it every month, but may have to find a local CCW buddy to split the cost with me after this year's membership expires.

    if the magazine's available separately, or if you can be a member without access to the web site i'll renew.

    if you can't be a member without paying the extra $$$ for web access, i'm out.

    can't justify $29.00 for a site i might visit 3 or 4 times a year.

    i checked the web site. you can renew and not take the archives/web access.

    basic price is still $40.00, so i'll renew if that's still available when my sub. runs out.

    I'm a member and can't log on to the new website. My email for help has gone unanswered for a week now. Renew with the increase? Doubtful.

    I am pretty sure Tim is a member here of this forum, so Tim you have the floor on giving us an explaination (sp) of why such an increase to the membership.

    I'm not Tim...but I'll venture to say this: CCM is a VERY professionally put together magazine. I hope they win some type of award for their work.
    Maybe if we could get others to join, the cost would go down.
    For a few dollars less, we'd be left with a "newsletter" the likes of Gun tests (not that I am bashing gun tests). I for one think the magazine is GREAT, and I look forward to leaving mine lying around a few places that I visit. My only complaint is that it only comes around 8 times a year.....

    The magazine is very good.

    $40 was steep.

    If the price is now in the 70's or higher than previously I will not rejoin. I can stay with the NRA, and several other magazines for the same price.

    I'm really sad to see this happen.

    I was just getting back on my feet (financially) to be able to afford the $40 fee and get the magazine at the same time but my situation hasn't improved that much.

    Shame that this happened, I will either have to wait longer to join/renew (the magazine) or just drop the idea all together for now.

    I think that is a little unfair and far from the truth!

    I have every confidence that Tim is costing only to cover things - the whole enterprise being IMO a pretty costly one. He must be aware of the law of diminshing returns when upping prices - and so I reckon he has to do so - but certainly not for any ''elitist'' reasons!

    I still hope the venture continues and flourishes but it still needs the support of all who manage it.

    I would also disagree with the "Tim must only want rich people in his club".

    Even through I am disappointed in the price increase which will push back the time that I am able to renew my magazine subscribtion and join USCCA, I am well aware of the costs of running a magazine and an organization (from reading about it and talking with those that do it) and I can say with certain that Tim did what he had to do and only that, not to make this into a "club".

    I will take back my "and maybe just forget about it" (drop the idea) from my previous post. I was just highly disappointed with the raise in costs, knowing that I would have to wait longer, and I guess I let it show in my post wrongly.

    Tim speaks...

    ...only the rich? Come on.

    You will ALWAYS be able to renew your subscription/membership at the $39/year price.

    If you don't want to pay the extra money for the website access... Well, you don't have to!

    I am sorry that you guys don't like the new website. We really put a lot of time and energy into it. I hope someone finds it useful.

    ... back to that "only the rich" comment...

    Believe me. If I was in this thing for the money, I would have quit a LONG time ago.

    Not sure what else to say.

    Glad to finally hear from you Tim... I might ask then on the website to join, that you can still get into the USCCA for the $40 price, but wont have access to the full website. At this time, there is no mention of that, just the price increase to $69. If I am wrong about this, the lower price, then I must have read your note wrong. I am interested, but not at the increased cost.

    All of our renewal letters have the $39 renewal price. I'll add that to the website as well.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    I am a member of the uscca and still can't even access the website, I know it is under construction, but I haven't been able to access in quite a while and won't pay an increased cost without being able to see the 'value' in it. I am anxious to see the website and its contents as it must be very nice. I love the magazine Tim, don't get me wrong, and I like the uscca, but this years membership hasn't proved to be much more than the magazine subscription, and now to get a benefit of the website, I will have to pay another $29. Please let me know what I am missing.
    I kind of feel like this is a grassroots effort organization and would like to stick with it, but I have to see more benefit to do us other than the magazine subscription. Thanks for your time and your efforts to defend the 2nd.
