    NRA membership upgrade

    The NRA just called me for the first time in a few years. I've been a life member forever. Like many folks, the NRA's habit of rolling over and throwing its legs in the air made me stop sending them money, etc. Now, they dusted off their old call list and hit me up to upgrade from life to elite membership. I could even get a "free" jacket!

    I'm sort of feeling a dilemma here. The anti push is about as strong as I can ever recall, and I'd like to do whatever I can to help. However, the history of caving in on so many issues made me decline the offer to upgrade. I explained my reasons to the "paid caller," but doubt she'll pass it up the chain, or that it would matter.

    Are any of you rethinking your position on the NRA?

    Though I agree with you, I am going to throw a membership of 1 yr at them for the wife and I. Not sure if it will help, but I feel better with some action versus none. I wouldn't upgrade either. I am keeping to the one year so I have some control of the cash and if they piss me off, I drop it again like the last time.

    They have to feed their over paid lawyers.

    So they want you to upgrade from a "life" to an "eternity" membership? If you want to send them a donation, send them one. No need to upgrade a "life" membership to do that.

    Or send to fund a specific NRA-ILA campaign.

    I'm an NRA life member but feel no need to upgrade my membership. I do send them donations from time to time. That's enough. The NRA has its problems, but overall it's a good organization that does help firearms owners rights. There are several other gun rights organizations out there and I have joined and supported some of them in the past. All have their pluses and minuses. I've yet to find perfection in any organization on this Earth.

    Best regards
    Doc

    I got the same call to upgrade my life membership. One time in the past when they called for an upgrade I instead bought a life membership for my son.
    I have to admit I do not like the idea of hiring a lobbyist. It just doesn't seem right.
