    I like the representation and the organized effort.

    BTW I did ask if I could be taken off the mailers, givaways and they said it will cost more to do that than sending me the stuff.


    Maybe I should start sending more.



    I am a life member but constanly hanging up on them calling in the evening....I to get tired of the constant WE NEED YOUR MONEY BS. If it is that important send me a letter in the mail and I will read it eventually and make the determination on my time when I decided to address the issue...not during the time of the day I am trying to relax and unwind.

    I expect to be left alone & can be rude when called, this includes political campaigns - dropped NRA when Tonya? was the legislative person - just got tired of a constant crisis when there was not one. Did rejoin this year. DU is not my bag because of their overpay of the Executive Director, but do have a really nice cribbage set my wife & I use which was purchased at a silent auction many years ago. I do Rocky Mountain Elk though I do not hunt big game as I believe a healthy Elk population is a sign of a system in balance.

    I also just don't send money, I do a lot on our property & through the citizen process to show what a good citizen a gun packer can be.

    Lifer.

    Rest assured the NRA isn't getting any of Dear Leader's stimulus money. I've given money to the NRA-ILA and will do so again. Don't be too hard on them constantly looking for donations. It's their life blood.

    I've been a member for a number of years now. We had a guy come into work with his Life Member jacket and I made a comment about. He said he never realized you could pay in installments. When he found out he took the plunge.

    These days I don't want to be in debt to anyone. I'd pay off my mortgage if I could. I think I'll take that money I just "saved" on the life membership and buy another gun or a few kegs of powder.
