Yes, but you do realize that 1 phone call eliminates all that right...I was the same way...I joined also last year(for the first time) the reason id not joined...well I just dont know but im sure back then I had them...I started getting bombarded with junk...DVD's that were not wanted and one of the guys that are a NRA member said call them and tell them to stop sending unwanted stuff. Know what I did just that..other than a questionnaire last November ive gotten nothing but the magazine and a renewal notice(yeah it was still 5 months early but I just circular filed it). I just got a deal from a life member where I got 2 year membership extension for $25 and signed my kid up also for the junior program...All ive gotten in the last 7 months was the magazine and a questionnaire..thats it..

Great info here. I had been wondering about this for awhile but never really took the time to look into it. Now after seeing this thread, I will be having a chat with the boss tonight when she gets home. I like the idea and the quality of service I see from Armed Citizens and I see they have a family plan at $135. Looks like a pretty good deal...

Depends on what kind of insurance is offered: for criminal defense and paying legal fees, or liability for civil suits. I have 2 million liability from my home and car insurer, an umbrella policy, which extends all liability coverage for either car or home by 2 million. An SD shooting would be covered (as part of homeowners I believe) - as long as you were not guilty of murder, manslaughter etc. - in any civil suit. My yearly premium is $150. State Farm is my company. (And they state they cover shootings on the street, not just on your property)
As far as legal fees for legal costs in a criminal proceeding: there's the type of "legal-protection" insurance others have mentioned. Like DWI insurance. Some think this kind of thing is a rip off, since you are not paying year after year for any actual legal representation, but for the possibility of some IF you ever need it. The statistics being overwhelmingly against ever needing it, the legal group is receiving money regularly with only the slightest chance they will ever have to accrue any costs.
I would look carefully at what you get if you ever need such a service from a group. How much will they cover, starting when, if you're found guilty what happens etc. What parts of the procedure will they cover, Grand Jury, collection of evidence, pre-trial motions etc, etc.

I'm not saying that you are wrong (about it being the game in your "town"). However, it doesn't need to be that way.
Here, in Virginia, politicians at all levels (pro and anti RKBA) agree that the NRA does not have the influence that the local grass-roots Pro-RKBA organization has. Check out Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. (VCDL)
Also, the NRA has been a tag-a-long on issues such as the DC carry (Heller) fight and the NPS carry fight.
No you are not wrong.
Others in other localities are not wrong -- and that is too bad.
But it doesn't need to be that way. Pro RKBA citizens don't need to accept and follow everything at face value, especially if it is cited in mainstream media and in an organization's self promotion publicity.
I do not suggest that anyone abandon the NRA.
However, please don't just sit back and accept that they are and must be the only game in town. Don't voluntarily acquiesce to a perceived authority -- especially if it is not effective or focused on your priorities.
Seek out a grass-roots organization, locally. If there isn't one, start one. It doesn't need to start as a full-blown State-wide large membership deal. VCDL grew from a local Northern Virginia organization.
Build it and they will come.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

I checked out several companies and settled on a company called CHL. It was about $40.00 / year cheaper and for the same coverage. As far as the NRA, I agree with most of the negative comments on here. However, if it were not for them, or should I say it's membership that supports them, we would not enjoy the 2nd amendment rights we were recently granted with CCW (save Illinois). IMO, the best no compromise gun organization is Gun Owners of America (GOA). The majority of your money goes to its intended purposes.
