    Lone_Wolfe has sponsored a NRA drive type activity on here before.

    In light of current events and LW's effort in the first place,
    I just renewed "m2hmghb" for 3 years.

    Merry Christmas m2.

    A lifetime member sponsored me to allow me to upgrade to a 'Lifetime Membership". Thank you.

    Folks pay it forward if you can!

    Thank you Sawgrass. I can't pay it forward right now, but I'll try to when I can.

    m2 prayers for you and your familly. I know that you are doing the best that you can. I have enjoyed getting to know you a little bit on here.

    My intent of this thread is that if you can join the NRA, do it.

    If you can afford to gift a membership, do it. The NRA is strong but there is a tough road ahead.

    It was interesting this morning on the phone with them.
    At first they said I needed all of the person gifting me the cheaper lifetime membership, contact info. I said I only have his full name and membership #. The lady said we have to have his contact info. Then I told her that my SO and I are both teachers and this is important to us and that I would like to complete this transaction if at all possible. She put me on hold and eventually came back and said ok , we can do it. School policy prevents us from protecting ourselves. It's important to me to support them as much as I can.

    Funny you posted this, I gifted two memberships last night, neither are gun owners but support our side and see the anti's as having no common sense.

    I gave up on gifting memberships when it became apparent that no one that I bought a membership for ever cared enough to renew when it cost them money. Not saying that applies to you sawgrass or m2hmghb. Just my own experience.

    That happens unfortunately. I guess a gift is a gift.
    In regards to current events, anything we do to help the NRA will hopefully help us.

    LW is the one to lead a membership drive. I will sure be happy when she is able.

    My buddy passed along the reduced gift to one of my not as gun friendly friends today as well. One step and one mind at a time.

    It's usually $25 or $35 for a year's membership, and is doesn't cost any extra to buy for someone else.

    Someone posted a link recently where the memebership was $25, and you got a $25 gift card. I'm going to try to find that and use it.

    Thanks everyone! There is a tough road ahead and the NRA needs our support. It costs money to lobby.

    Lone_Wolfe it's great to see you posting!
