Default Pro-2A credit cards for "culture war"

The idea is to first show them that I'm a decent, paying customer. Then show them that I'm a gun guy, in an obvious, but unobtrusive way.

I know there's an NRA-branded credit card, but this thread from 2014 has some poor reviews of it.

Are there any other cards with pro-2A images? Has First National Bank of Omaha gotten better?

Rewards or donations are a nice plus, but that's not what's important to me. I want something that says "this nice person who's a valuable customer likes guns, therefore at least some gun people must be decent people, and some of them are our customers."

I'd love to have something like the gun and 2A manuscript design available for the NRA cards, though a non-antique weapon would be better. A 1911 or M1A would be great - a classy, semi-modern gun.

Do you really think some cashier is going to notice or be impressed by the background picture on your credit card?

It's like people who pay extra for fancy printed checks. Who are they trying to impress? I don't get it. Just use the lowest cost ones, free if possible.

Choose a credit card based on the annual fee, interest rate, and service, not by the background picture on the card.

Why not just wear an NRA hat or shirt or other NRA-branded clothing when you go shopping or out in public if you want to "represent" as a gun owner?

You can probably google DIY credit card skins/decals. I'd help....but I'm not 14 anymore so the whole idea seems goofy. Just wear some tac (fat) pants and a 5.11 hat to operate the heck out your local grocery store.

Clerks rarely handle my cards these days. Seems pointless. There's always tshirts.

Let me see if I understand.

So I hand my pro 2A credit card to the minimum wage clerk, who missed the week of Junior High where they studied the Constitution cuz she was home having her baby, has to Ax he boss when her lunch break is, and can't read anyway cuz she went to public school...


Then what?

I just like making tax deductible donation to Calguns foundation and putting it on my tax return.

The thing is most people are never going to be swayed in their core beliefs via T-shirts, billboards, CC's, bumper stickers, magazines, news, etc.

If you believe in gun rights, then you believe in gun rights.

If your an anti-gun person, chances are you will go through your entire life being that way.

Very few people in this day and age have enough selflessness to question their actions/beliefs let alone change or grow.

My Capital One visa has a photo of my wife and I on it. My wife submitted a photo when she ordered the card. You can put any photo on it though. Well, no porn.

Not sure if that helps.

Now days, the store cashier doesnt need to handle your card anymore. With the invention of the chip, you insert your card into the machine and it stays in your position the entire time. Its cool if you want it for yourself but it wont sway anyone else.

Wife and I both have American Express Platinum cards. Well, actually someone stole hers, but they spend less then she does so I'm not reporting it.

I have Disney Visa with Darth Vader on it. I get lots of compliments on it, but no one has questioned my pro-Empire position.

I've had an NRA VISA for a few years. Once a checker at Cabela's (or Bass Pro or Sportsmans Warehouse) looked at it and said: "Nice card!".

Anyway, I use it because the NRA gets a teensy-weensy cut of all my purchases. I don't use "point" cards because I don't want any incentive to spend money.
