I've been an NRA member for several years. I usually do a 2 year renewel. I never could justify coming up with $1000 for the lifetime with all the other expenses that I've had. Today I went to a hunting expo and they had it reduced to $750...still a big nut. Not to mention I had received letters in the mail offering it for $600. Then the lovely lady tells me that my cc can be billed $25 quarterly for 7&1/2 years......well sign me up.
I'm finally a lifetime member and it feels pretty cool.
