    Is no one taking a look at this? Seems pretty straightforward to me, big benefit to all of us. I'm going to let this sit on the first page another day just to make sure people see it.

    It's still a little foggy as the verification system looks like it isn't robust but I added the PDF they sent me. Seems like it's pretty legit, I'm probably going to call the claims number to check into it as soon as I can.

    Is this to make up for the NRA's support of the Indiana "Self defense" law?

    What if you are already a member of the NRA? Is this an additional benefit above and beyond?

    Ok, I was on the AT for the last 4 days. I'm back now and will try and make some inquiries. SAR I believe from what I read that you should go ahead and sign up again as this seems to be a separate deal. Takes about 30sec.

    I'm already a life member of the NRA. I haven't really looked too much into the LOD membership, but it's in the magazine every month. I don't know how much it is for the LOD membership. I do know that at the end of every year I get a letter offering a greatly reduced life membership offer for a friend.

    I signed up for it... took all of 3 minutes, and I assume there will be details coming in the mail soon. This NRA insurance certificate doesn't really have anything to do with a standard NRA membership, although I'm sure it's a way to convince military and LEO's to sign up for NRA. I don't mind the occasional NRA ad in exchange for $25,000/$2500 in benefits to my wife in the event of my LOD death or injury.

    I have a few of these small "free" term life insurance policies from banks too, $1000 here and $2000 there. They are stuck in my file cabinet. I see this NRA deal as similar. Of course the backing banks' plan is to offer the free coverage, and convince you eventually to also buy additional coverage from them. But I just take the free stuff, and get my substantial life insurance ($500,000 policy) from my actual insurance agent... not a mail-in offer. ;)
