View Full Version : NRA Life Membership $300 - CLOSED

NRA sent me a letter allowing me to sign up "family" as Life members for $300. I called and they said I can sign up as many as I can fit on a piece of paper. Calguns in one big happy family so I'm opening up the offer to all of you.

To take advantage of this offer you need to send me your name and address, your magazine preference, and a check made payable to NRA for $300.

PM me for my mailing address. PM me if you have any questions.

I'll leave this open until 2/28/2010. I'll send everything to NRA 3/1/2010.

A few days left, still open, but keep in mind I need your payment by 2/28, it's a Sunday so Monday will suffice. Monday means Monday. Everything I have gets sent to NRA Monday, 3/1. If your check comes after Monday it gets sent back to you.

3/1 - Waiting on the afternnon mail for any stragglers. Everything will be sent to NRA tonight. After some processing time you'll get your Life package.

If you owe more than $300 you should do it. If you owe less keep on EPL. I upgraded both my wife and son from EPL, both owed approx $450 each.

02-09-2010, 9:02 AM
Yeah - I was on EPL when I ended up taking the "$300 buyout option" :)

I've got a sheet too, so if the OPs fills up we can keep this going.

I've got a sheet too, so if the OPs fills up we can keep this going.

How can I get in on this if I am not yet an NRA member? Is it possible?

Another idea might be to accept PayPal and do it for say $325 and have the extra $20 ($325 - $5 est. for paypal fee = $20) go thowards the CalGuns foundation.

Just a thought...

In any case can I get in if I am not yet an NRA member??

No membership required.

I personally am not accepting money through paypal as my paypal account isn't connected to a bank account and I have no desire to have NRA money from calgunners at the mercy of paypal if my paypal account is frozen for any reason.

You don't need to use the paper method. Current Life members can use the http://www.nravalidate.org site to sign up new members. Assuming you have cash payment in hand, that is. :)

Better than the membership page's upgrade offer (IIRC $750), but more than the "family" offer like the one in this thread..

FYI Guys, it can take some time. Last year I signed up a few people with checks and it took quite awhile before they got their packets.

This year I just charged the ones I did on my CC via the online page I linked to earlier in this thread and asked for the money and they were processed and the packets were back before the end of Feb.

Hang in there..

I just converted over to life membership two days ago thanks to "Sevans" :D my long lost cousin, hehehe

Anyway, I paid by credit card and checked my membership status online which says Im a "annual member" with an expiration of Year 2030.

Hmmm... Thats only 20 years, Hope I live longer than that LOL!

Anyway, thanks again to "Sevans" if you see this post and cheers to those who converted over as lifers as well :)

UPDATED: checked my online membership status today 04/01/10 and my status is now "LIFE-ACTIVE" Yay!!!

Does anyone know how long the delay was between the NRA cashing the check and the Membership Services website updating to either expiring in 2030 or Life-Active?

The NRA cashed my check on Friday, but my Membership status still shows Regular Annual-Active, expiring 2010.

Edit: I just checked the Membership Services website on Sunday, April 4. My expiration is now 2030.
