The above is in response to many comments containing all sorts of personal information posted to this article and concerning individual membership and other issues with the NRA. Be thankful I have the spam filters turned up because, without that, all of that personal information would otherwise be visible to everyone and all “bots” scanning this website. Do not send me your problems, home address, telephone number and especially not your social security number. [Sheesh!]
Now, back to the blog. (Original posting below.)
Recently, the NRA had a special offer for existing members to upgrade to “Life” membership for $300, a considerable savings on the usual $1000 fee.
But the offer reached me by word of mouth rather than the usual NRA letter in the mail so after spending my money, I wanted to be sure it “took” but knew it would take a while to reach the NRA’s computers.
So I waited a month and, sure enough, I’m good for life now.
Here’s how you can verify your membership type and status.
Go to http://nramemberservices.org/ and sign in using your NRA membership number and password. If you don’t have or know these, there is a button on that page to “sign up now”.
While there, you can check “Your Shooting Classifications” over to the left in the “Manage Your Membership” menu as well as update the usual details.
From now on, while I will continue to add a NRA donation to my purchases from Dillon Precision, Midway USA, Brownells and other NRA supporting organizations, I will know I can safely toss letters like the one this morning giving “Final Notice” to renew my NRA membership.
I’m good, guys. You can save your postage.
And don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten you.
