    Discounted NRA memberships available

    I have been getting a few emails this week, asking if these discounts are still available (They are.).....so I figured that I'd start a new post about them.

    As an NRA recruiter, I can offer special discounted memberships for a limited time that are not available online (aside from the 1 yr.). They can only be offered through a recruiter via the NRA membership applications that I have. Its a bit of work, but I'd like to offer them here. If anyone is interested in these discounts, send me a pm with your address. I'll mail you the application form and then you can mail it back to me.

    The discounts are:

    One year - $25 instead of $35
    Three years - $70 instead of $85
    Five years - $100 instead of $125
    Life - $750 instead of $1000

    You can also do the easy pay life membership which is $25 per quarter until $750 is paid off.

    If you are interested, shoot me a pm here or an email to training@proactiveshooters.com and I'll drop the app in the mail to you.

    I'd consider it if the NRA hadn't been so dismissive the last time I tried to advise them that their legal guide was flat wrong when it came to Alabama law. Since I wasn't a member, the truth did not matter to them. So I'm kinda glad I'm not a member and don't intend to become one until they tone down the arrogance and anti-OC stance a couple of thousand notches.

    I don't need no stinkin NRA membership. Especially since they promote privilege NOT rights. If they want this OC'ers money they need to stop the anti-OC BS.

    Membership in the NRA that:

    Tried to muscle into Gura's case on Heller?

    Seems to have become a huge bureaucracy that thinks it knows best?

    Feeds its membership a steady diet of fear-mongering?

    Has members with a vested interest in CC (instructors)?

    Who I had to argue with by e-mail over a misrepresentation to its VA membership about CC in a restaurant licensed to serve alcohol?

    That NRA?

    Thanks, no. Not until management changes a few things.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Don't you want potential members to be fully informed before joining?

    BTW, what I posted was not BS. It represents the true experience I had with them. If you consider my relating the facts as "bashing," then you must admit that the NRA did something wrong. Perhaps you could work to fix the error rather than calling the honest relation of their actions "BS."

    BTW, I would not have posted again, not calling attention again to what the NRA did to me, had you not indicated my post was "not welcome."

    If you want the NRA and your invitation to be seen in a positive light, may I suggest you take a positive approach to the posts you called "BS." Again, maybe you could portray the NRA as a responsible organization by working to get them to be responsive to non-members pointing our misinformation that they have posted. Or you could perpetuate the dislike many carriers have for the NRA's heavy-handed ways by being heavy-handed yourself in this thread.

    Your choice.

    The ~4 million NRA members number has not seemed to have changed much over the years. With the increasing number of reported firearms owners one would think that the NRA numbers would likewise increase at some rate that would approximate the increase in firearms ownership. Since the NRA numbers have not seemingly kept pace with firearm owner numbers there seems to be a disconnect between the NRA and the citizenry.

    I wonder why that is?

    There is a rule concerning the "bashing" of pro-gun groups on the forum rules.

    If the rule applies to this particular thread is unknown. If an organization is looking for $$$ then can the pros and cons of the organization be discussed here? If not, a moderator will let us know.

    This is a good point.

    Also, as Eye95 points out, relating facts and personal experience is not generalized bashing.

    And, you would think a seller would take time to promote his product. Features and benefits. If he does not care for sincere negative consumer reports, he can always counter by promoting the features and benefits rather than calling BS. For petes sake, it may even change some of the critics.

    DISCOUNTED NRA MEMBERSHIPS OFFERED

    Discounted NRA memberships available

    I was an NRA member for several years. I haven't renewed since they dissed pretty much every other gun group in regards to the DISCLOSE Act. They do some solid work for gun rights but could do a lot more. You can't dispute their influence on Congress, whether you like it or not they are a big dog in the lobbying business and they probably do more good than harm. My one little gripe was the nearly weekly mailing asking for money. VCDL has never asked me for money and I feel they are far more effective.

    I grabbed some NRA bumper stickers at the AZCDL Annual Meeting and gave them to my parents. I spend my cash on organizations that I feel represent me. Sorry to rain on your parade but the NRA isn't one of them.

    Well, if it's true, it ain't BS and it ain't bashing. I've got my own reasons for not joining the No Rights Association. One is they helped write the GCA '68, and the Clinton ban on " assault weapons", and the NFA '34. Oh, well, that's actually 3 reasons, I guess.
