I'm still having issues with supporting them.

They endorsed Harry Reid for the 2010 midterm elections because Harry bought a multimillion dollar shooting sports education complex with federal dollars.

I'm not saying that they don't do good things, but Harry is no friend to 2nd amendment rights, and being bought off for an endorsement does sit well with me.

No way the NRA should have endorsed Reid. We lost a potential senate seat due in part to that endorsement.
This is not correct. NRA did not endorse anyone in that race and gave Sharon Angle an A rating and Reid a B+ rating (over his votes for Sotomayor and Kagan). NRA did give Reid a very positive article in the American Rifleman magazine - and they let him off relatively easy gradewise on the two important votes. However, you'll also notice no gun control legislation came to the floor of the Senate when the Dems had all 3 levers of power from 2008-2010.
