Alright, so I did a search and didn't see anything about this.
The NRA is doing their annual (or semi-annual) life membership deal for $300 (normally $1000).
Here is what I know:
Gotta be either a Disabled Vet (although they don't ask for any verification of that)
Know someone with a life membership to sponsor you.
There may be other ways to get this deal but I don't know - I am a Disabled Vet and did it that way. I have heard that it has been hit or miss on who you talk to. Some say they just say their 'friend' is a life member and told them about the deal and that is good enough - others say they get people that say they need the life members number in order to give them the promo price.
Anyways, just wanted to pass it on. It's something I believe in strongly and am glad there is an organization out there that helps defend our 2nd Amendment right.
ps - I also have no idea how long this is good for. So get it while the gettin' is hot.
