    Now look what you guys made me do....

    Well, I finally got out the WD-40 and a crowbar and opened my rusty wallet..... Joined the NRA today. he hardest part was deciding which magazine to get. I went with American Rifleman. Yes I blame it on all of you with your constant nagging.... I've always told myself I was going to join eventually, so what better time than now? Oh, and also when I buy my next gun, I'm gonna blame it on you guys too.
    Thanks

    I'll take the blame as long as you are willing to share the gun with us!

    You really need to stay off the Brady website

    But like the old Ernest and Gallo tv commercials said, "Thank you for your support."
    "[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons.
    They are left in full possession of them."

    You got the lifetime membership, right? Actually the extended pay program is very good. I owe 5 more payments on mine. Worth every penny.

    Join the G.O.A.

    They won't compromise us all out of our 2A rights like the NRA is currently doing.

    Congrats on joining the NRA! The American Rifleman magazine is a good read with many historical articles of different rifles. Welcome to the group!

    Thank-you......

    One thing I wish the NRA would do----after I decide to join and send in the info with my check, I wish they would save the rest of their money and not send me a letter every other week asking for more support. Maybe on the original application a box could be marked asking if you want to be solicited in the future on special tasks or just left alone.

    You know, I get more junk mail in a week than I get from the NRA in a whole year. What's the problem with just dumping it with the rest? That mail is serving a purpose. It's making money for the NRA. They wouldn't be sending it out if they were losing money on it. What I did was to build my membership up to Benefactor level over the years instead of just sending money. I don't get a lot of mail from them anymore. But if it bothers you that much, call down to headquarters and ask them to take you off the mailing list. They'll be happy to.

    Anyone who thinks that they are better served by GOA or JPFO are living in a dream world. They have no clout whatsoever. I notice that Rudy Giuliani didn't go to either of them this week to schmooze for votes. He picked the NRA, and for good reason.
