Definitely not a dupe. I just signed up myself, (had a membership long ago but let it lapse), and when my kids get home from school I'm going to sign them up as well.

So I can sign up my whole immediate family?
I will assure ya'll that a free 1st year will account for subsequent years. i am not trying to "dupe" the NRA but the low price of membership does actually cut into our already meager food allowance. So I sign up the others and we are now names on the list of political supporters? No more money due? what about the magazines? One title per address or are we taking advantage of the organization for having more than one? All will be read cover to cover each month several times.... I signed up my self but what about my wife, 19 year old son and 17 year old daughter? We are all pro gun/gun rights supporters? Fill me in as I have never really gone to the sign up level before... These are the years I am first concerned that my name on a simple roster may help...

NRA, just wait till the E-mails start coming in soliciting for more donations, buying wine, ect. one after another after another. There's no such thing as "free".

The NRA needs your help, join for free!

The battle lines have been drawn and it's just this simple, the NRA needs sheer, raw, numbers.

Join the NRA today for FREE (one year membership).
I have no idea how long this offer is going to be available.

(Hit it folks, let's get those membership numbers UP there).

I'd consider joining again if it weren't for all the junk mail they send....EVERY WEEK! I asked for it to be stopped and they said no. I said goodbye.
Go ahead, flame away if you must, but I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.

What a lame excuse. (and I don't buy the "they said NO" part either).

NRA Membership FAQ
https://www.nramemberservices.org/faq.asp

Q: How can I reduce the amount of mail I receive from the NRA?

A: Simply email us at membership@nrahq.org or dial 800-NRA-3888 and request to be placed on the "Do Not Promote" list. This will significantly reduce the amount of mail you receive without affecting important mailings, magazine service, or your membership renewal.
Every person I know who has tried this (and that's a decent number of people) has ceased to get promotional mail, excepting their magazines, from the NRA.

Full disclosure... I do know one guy who had to call twice.

Is this legit? I scoured the NRA website and was unable to find a link. I did sign up thru the above link a few days ago, but got no email confirmation, which seemed strange.

You'd think that if they were looking for a significant bump in membership numbers, it'd be more easily found.

It May be a Coincidence but...

I signed up for this last week. Today I received an envelope with the obligatory NRA sticker and no card. Rather, a membership activation/join now with your dues enclosed form.

It may be a coincidence, but I will be interested in seeing what others that signed up for this receive.

I'm not knocking the free bit, but I would rather pay because the dues are what makes it possible for the NRA to lobby in Washington and file lawsuits against idiots like the Mayor of New York.

I do wish that, after paying my dues, the NRA would stop constantly sending me letters saying that my memebership is expiring, etc.

I get so much crap, I don't remember form year to year when it really does expire, and I igonre all the letters because they don't stop. I would be more responsive if I got one or two letters a year, beause then I would know that it is time to renew, and I would send in my money. It's like, "Stop bothering me, and put more effort into bother polititians".
