Skip to comments.I Joined the NRA Today.
Posted on 01/21/2013 7:58:32 AM PST by Gabrial
In honor of my self-proclaimed "Socialist Dictactor-Free Day" (may his Kenyan/Indonesian/Muslim name not be mentioned) I finally joined the NRA. Anybody with me?
They’d pick up a lot more support if you could join for free.
Good idea! I’d do that, too, except that I’m already a member.
They need the money to put ads on TV.
how about the NRA and the GOA join both
I won’t join after I saw them endorse anti-2A candidates in 2010 over conservative 2A candidates.
I’d rather join the 2nd Amendment Foundation.
Last week I spread the wealth around and re-joined the NRA, joined GOA and JPFO as well.
And donated to the FReepathon.
For active duty military NRA free membership
I’m not really a ‘joiner’ per se...last time I did that in 1968 I spent 7 out of 8 years overseas in some real sh!tholes.
I prefer instead to check off the “round up” option on everything I buy from MidwayUSA.....I’ve spent quite, quite a bit with them over the years.....
What took so long? I have been a member since I was 18
Good for you!
I haven’t been a member for several years, but renewed my membership last week. The best $35.00 I’ve spent in a while! At least these guys aren’t afraid to take it to the Marxist-in-Chief.
Hey Boner and McConnell...are you guys taking notes? Probably not.
Seems to me that the pure numbers alone would be worth limited free membership.
Also, everyone should join there local state rifle or gun rights organization
List of state associations
I re-upped both NRA & GOA this past Tuesday.
Life Member already. Sent them $100 just last week.
Same here, but we are in a different fight today.
I quit NRA after they endorsed anti-2A candidates in 2010 over conservative 2A candidates.
Looking at the actions taken by the SAF and GOA right now.
Their participation and how much they help us is a big part in my joining. I see the SAF does a lot of suing but are they as effective or as big as NRA?
I did last summer at a Sporting Clays event.
Re-upped last week.
I joined the NRA, GOA,FreeRepublic with a Monthly Donation, and the Dollar a Day Roll this month. I have my TV turned off , will not watch King O celebrations. So did I miss anything? Other than the total BS on the MSM, the big Slobber fest.
I will be on FreeRupblic most of the Day, I will also spend some time outside as it is warm/cool here in Tennessee, Sun is out, Pistol Range is closed(bummer).
I joined a couple of weeks ago, bought my first gun a couple of weeks before that.
Exchanged my RNC membership for NRA membership.
I used to own a bar. I found that I had more drinkers when I said, "Drinks are on the house".
Lost a lot of profit and you never make it up.
People looking for freebies, are the same all over.
Did you work for nothing?
Let the RNC go and get their donations from the Moderates and Independents they love so much. They won't get another cent from me!
Exactly what I told them friday evening..not another dime, until I see a true conservative candidate..and I dont expect that to happen..
Hope you like telemarketers.
I quit in October because of the incessant calls from their marketing "partners", and because of Harry Reid.
I just re-upped for 5 years, because this "five minute hate" campaign cannot be allowed to succeed, but there has to be a better 2A support organization than the NRA.
I did last week. It was just time.
Good for you! This is exactly what these people need to hear!
The audacity to crap all over your base, then to come begging them for money is the ultimate in disrespect. Sadly, there must be some who continually feed the beast and enable this dysfunctional relationship.
I let mine lapse years ago because of the constant barrage of begging-for-donation mail and phonecalls. Never again until they have an option to take my one time donation for that year and leave me alone. I’ll gladly pay my yearly dues but that is it. Take me off the sucker list.
Nobody is asking for anything aside from being counted among those who stand in agreement.
Apparently those who have been harmed by the Obamaconomy are unworthy of your kind.
Certainly not an unreasonable request. Hope they indeed do this.
I joined the NRA last week and yesterday a.m., in sub-freezing weather, went to a firing range for the first time to learn how to shoot. I kept hitting at 7 o’clock although I did get some in the center. My instructor loaned me a semi-automatic. The most difficult thing was loading the magazines - one especially was REALLY tight. I guess you get the hang of it eventually and it might help not to have frozen fingers.
Paid up for life.
Hope you like getting phone calls at dinner time asking for money. Hope you like seeing your dues spent on sending you junk mail every month asking for money.
Good for you...I joined about a week ago...told hubby I am sick of the gun grabbers, went to the NRA site, and joined...
My wife and I each signed up for five year memberships on Saturday while we were at a Guns Across America rally.
I’ve been a member for over 30yrs.
Have a credit card or checkbook ready...plus, be prepared to drool over that contest where you could win 20 different weapons, but no one ever seems to win.
Same reason I quit years ago. Use my money for your main purpose not for hitting me up for more donations. Seemed like more donations was their main goal though.
Your center hits may be the result of your anticipation of recoil if the majority of your shots group at '7'. You should have the gun fired from sandbags to determine if the sights need adjustment. If adjusted and nothing else changes, most of your shots will go center and your anticipatory ones that remain will go to '2'.
I am a life Member and I too hate the calls. Guess what, I disconnected my land line to the house...No more calls cause I sure as hell aint giving them my cell number. I still get their mail solicitations.
I cringe when I see their New HQ and think about all the arm twisting and campaign support that could have been used for.
For good measure, I re-joined the Gun Owners of America as well. Their reputation is that they're more aggressive about certain aspects of gun rights even than the NRA.
The instructor must have wondered if it was the gun or me so he did one and it was dead center. He is a competition shooter.
“Paul Meier 2 cards”
For some reason my laptop won’t load this but I understand it’s quite the trick.
This is THE BEST PLACE to send $$$ to oppose 0bummer.
Too bad, it means you are a consistent 'jerker'. Recoil anticipation is easier to fix in my experience.
He said I needed to strengthen my left hand grip - which made sense, my right side was overpowering my left side - hence the 7 o’clock.
You think I’ll have a hard time fixing this? There wasn’t much recoil - he said I was doing muzzle flip and too jerky pulling the trigger.
Yesterday was the first time I’ve ever shot except for a long time ago when I had a 20 gauge Baretta and we went skeet shooting.
I read somewhere that the NRA said they weren’t against tougher background checks. Propaganda or another sellout aka “it was the best we could do to prevent even worse laws”???
I wish to Hell our side and stop compromising. We should be counter-attacking as per:
1) Eliminating the 1968 GCA
2) Allow handgun sales across state lines.
3) Allow licensed CCW holders to have firearms shipped directly to them.
4) Put modern-made replicas of antiques under the BATFs 50-year rule.
Put the opposition on the defense for a change.
Not if you really want to, before it becomes a habit. Practice and concentrate for each shot, the shot should come as a surprise as you ease the trigger rearwards. Think and feel your position to help strengthen your muscle memory. This is something overcome by smart practice. Your instructor knows what he is doing and is right about what you're doing, through practice, so will you.
