    OK, I am going to open myself up, but here goes. I have not always agreed with the NRA, and at times thought the image they projected was poor. Though I cannot stand Michael Moore, his interview with Charlton Heston did us no good. Anyway, for these reasons I have shied away from the NRA. I have been going with GOA, and Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. (VCDL).

    I have started to understand that the NRA has one of the most powerful lobbies for 2A, and has benefited many of us whether we like them or not. So do I suck it up and join the NRA, and why, other than the obvious one I just stated?

    You answered your own question.

    NRA doesn't like me. I've tried to join. I really have. The first time I talked to them.... I called them by the way.... I signed up for a year and mailed them a check. Never got any literature or magazines.... thought it odd. Finally checked and my check was never cashed. Figured well maybe the mail got lost.... called them AGAIN a few months later and reupped and even sent in a $25 political donation this time as well. I put it on my credit card to be sure it would go through. Waited and waited and never got any paper work or magazines.... after about 2 or three months I started checking on my credit card and the charge never did get put through. Still hasn't. Go figure. Whats a guy gotta do to join anyway?

    I had the same problem signing up for a life membership. It finally went through on the second try for me.

    You can get one of those fancier mylar ones. They're kinda shiny in a way, I think, and the colors look deeper and more vibrant. I think you can get them at the NRA store . I haven't seen it in person, but I think its a little nicer than the regular decal they have.

    Yea, I have been sort of conflicted about putting the sticker on my car. I don't even own any guns (sorry folks, in time... the economy is to blame) but I kind of just wanted to get around to breaking stereotypes and showing my support. Bad side is that everyone will judge me before I even show my face.
