Donating to CGF is easy enough that even I can do it http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=108030 ...and if they were in the CG store I might just get that decoder ring after all.

Bad pun! Off the couch!

Thanks to Gene for clarifying things. I have donated, and plan to again within the month, but I was never quite sure if we had memberships or not. As was previously said, I'm not too concerned either way; CGF gets results and I feel confident that my money is going where it is best used.

To repeat, we are thinking about formalizing a membership level and some basic recognition for different levels. However, you'll also note that since mid-December, the todo list has gotten much longer and far more critical.

I believe United Way was a middle man which collected for many charities but they also kept back quite a bit for 'expenses'. Donating to direct to CG eliminates that skimming middleman.

Come to think of it today is payday, time to pass some along to the 2A cause.

I'd rather just donate and calguns can save the postage and shirt/sticker money and put it to better use like fighting for our rights. But maybe have a printable buisness card we could hand out to potential supporters.

The stridency is getting really old.

Again, time to cut to the chase.
