Thumbs up Membership Drive!! You can "NEVER not be a member of NRA" - Gene

In the words of Gene Hoffman, our fearless leader, you can never NOT be a be a member of the NRA.

In fact, donating to other organizations before being a member is just plain stupid. Yes they could be more effective per dollar, but they can move mountains. Please think about signing up yourself and everyone you know. I renew my mom, girlfriend, dad and myself every year and try to get the bass pro cards. I also make an additional donation to NRA-ILA and NRA foundation as well.

https://membership.nrahq.org/forms/s...AG&hid=4487688

I urge you to do the same.

I signed up for a lifetime membership a few hours ago and didn't noticed the bass pro gift card offer. We gotta get membership numbers up!

The only reason I'm not a member anymore is because I'm seriously fed up with their scare tactics and fear-mongering. IMHO, they are just as bad as the antis in this regard. The second they knock off that crap, they'll get my money again.

Flame on.

Donate to Second Amendment Foundation or Calguns Foundation then.

Gun Owners of America would be a good place to put your money as well.

You don't have to be a member to donate.

It is YOUR money. It speaks for you.

I agree. I donate to CGF, SAF, GOA, and RMGO.

This guy just signed up, booyah. Never thought I'd be an NRA member but I've changed a lot the last year or so.

I used that link you left here OP. Do you get a referral credit or something? Either way thanks for putting it my face and making it easy. haha

As an avid supporter of our gun rights and an active duty military member I went far to long not being a member. Yesterday I made a conscious effort to become a Lifetime Member of the NRA and SAF, it won't stop there.

I also began my own recruitment drive on the other forums, places, and social media networks that I frequent. I would recommend reaching out in all available means to bring those other 54 million gun owners into the fold.

While some tactical battles have been won, and I applaud all of those people that have carried my weight thus far, it is evident that the battles will certainly intensify.

Just re-upped on my NRA membership. I sent an email to the people who I helped build their ARs telling them to do the same.

We need to gear up for a fight.

I don't get any referral credits, I actually just googled for the "bass pro NRA" and found a link to a Springfield XD website and just copied and pasted.

Thanks for signing up!! I re-upped using this same link.

I've been a member plus four other friends/family signed up this year.

I was on the phone yesterday with the NRA yesterday, after being on hold for a half hour... They are busy over there.

The operator told me that between the first membership I paid for and the last, there were 3,000 inbetween. That was the span of twenty or thirty minutes.

I signed up for a $10 individual membership and donated an extra $30 to Cal-FFL, that is a lobbying group started by Brandon here on CGF that was very influential in getting SB249 pulled. They paid for billboards making fun of Yee's attempted gun ban, SB249.

I also sent a few dollars to NRA-ILA to help on the national level, and I have a bi-weekly payroll deduction from my company that goes to SAF and CGF.

My membership doesn't renew until mid-January, but I sent in payment yesterday. Timely, on my mind. Decent donation to follow next month.

Somehow I need to let them know that my restatement depends on what they say on Friday.
