I do a lot of research on firearms. I have a number of people who ask me about purchases. One or two have bought things after me. Doesn't bother me at all. I have one guy who buys my used stuff regularly. I spend lots of time looking at gun classifieds and try to pick up all the local deals. he know that if I already have a need met I will take the new one to the range a few times then sell one of them.
$0 of an NRA membership goes to legislative action or court battles. Not a dime. Only money contributed to the NRA-ILA or NRA-PVF.
Of course, you could just donate to the Second Amendment Foundation
I was feeling pretty good, then I looked around and realized I am not swimming or on fire.
