When the AWB ends I will join the NRA or become an NRA Life Member.

Fess up! How many of you actually kept your word?

I am curious because I have seen no such thread since September 13th.

I was one, and have procrastinated a bit, but am willingly going to do it. As a matter of fact, thanks for the reminder.

I said, "When the AWB ends......my guns will be legal!"
I kept my end of the bargain!

I just renewed my membership this afternoon . . . not because of the AWB sunset, but because my membership expired a couple of weeks ago.

I never made any promises. I knew that I'd STILL be broke after the sunset. I dreamed, but alas, it doesn't look like it's happening. What will happen is that I'll come into some $$$ right after the NEW ban. So someone save me a new-ban carbine with non-pinned stock and flash hider please. And at post-ban prices!

I have been wondering about this as well....I remember quite a few people that made this claim.
Anyone follow through?

How much is the lifetime membership now? $500?

I re-upped for 3 years last year....after this term is up, I may go the lifetime route.
Will see what the one time fee is by then.

They always send me deals on membership rates...actually, that reminds me, they owe me a hat.

I vowed to build more black rifles to replace the ones lost in a tragic fishing accident.

I actually signed up to be a life member during the Democratic National Convention. I listed to Kerry talk for about 10 minutes, then I got up and called the NRA.

I felt clean at the end of his speech, did you?

I didn't make myself that particular promise, but I joined the NRA anyway when I realized that there are very few organizations that will fight for my 2nd Ammendment rights like the NRA will.

I said when the AWB ends...I will build this....

and I did just that.

Been a member for 30 years and the ban has no end here!..........................................

I used to be a member of the NRA. I found that they were too moderate and I let my membership lapse. I told myself if the AWB sunsets that the NRA must have done something right. So I am once again a member of the NRA. I do prefer Gun Owners of America to the NRA! I guess for now I will belong to both.

Gave them a nice donation.

(already a member)

I'm a life member of both the NRA and GOA.

Signed up as a Life Member by phone on 9/10 when it was clear that it was dead.

Even sent the NRA a "thank you" email (and Fineswine a "FOAD" one).

Upped to Endowment level on the expiration date.

Now, to block the UN treaty thing (still not clear on potential impact to US citizens, but not good regardless).

Get nationwide CCW and hopefully start reducing crime levels.

Correct the NJ & CA other state bans.

Get more people out shooting for fun. Heck of a better sport than golf, in my opinion.

Enjoy a little bit of life returning to the idyllic, polite days after WWII when the good sense that the average household contained firearm trained & firearm owning vets was a good deterrent to criminals. I want that back again.

Upgraded to endowment (they give you a bigger penis with this one) on the 14th.
Link Posted: 9/30/2004 12:15:42 PM EDT
Yes, yes I did say that.
Link Posted: 9/30/2004 12:46:46 PM EDT
I said if the AWB des I will vote for Bush. And now I will.

I gave to the GOP and the factory new hi-cap mags are on backorder.

Sweet! I'm glad some of you kept your word.

Shameless bump for the day crew.
