Last year before and during the election, I practically received mail from NRA every couple of weeks, to which some of them I did contribute. Now since after the election and after I renewed my membership, I haven't received a single piece of mail from NRA except for my American Rifleman magazine. This came as a surprise to me since I was a regular contributor. I know I can still contribute anytime, but I'm surprised that NRA doesn't ask me anymore.

I hadn't received any for a couple months. But now it looks like they are starting back up as I have received several. My guess is you will be receiving one shortly.

You have too much time on your hands to be worried when the NRA PVF/ILA is going to send you a solicitation letter. Don't worry I am sure that you will be receiving some very soon. Sometimes you have got to be careful what you wish for.

I get them most every day, I can send you some of mine. I also am now getting them from every group that has seen a picture of a gun.

I'm not worried....just surprised. Especially during the time with the U.N. deal going on. I actually don't mind the letters. I actually find them informative with what is going on legally around the nation with firearm laws. I do get a lot from my state rifle association though. Mostly informing me of meets/events in the area.

I just received a gun poll with the obvious questions we must have all seen. Then it doesn't ask for a donation, but to renew my membership. Problem is I'm either Endowment or higher. I did recently purchase some stuff from the on-line store which might be the reason.

Yep, I gots my letters about the UN and gun control too. I agree, I personally kinda like to read some of those letters because it gives me some insights on that they are going to do with the money. We're in big trouble here in Calif. The legislture just passed a firearms owners licensing bill and is waiting for Gov. Davis' signature.

Tell them you're not sending money until they vow to support ALL firearms owners. Right now they're pushing under the rug the black rifle crowd so that they can show a "kinder and gentler" membership.

I received a certificate (Diploma) for my contributions last year. I'm going to put it up on wall. Can't wait till I get another. [;)]

I joined about 2 years ago... Since then, I've received solicitations from them almost weekly... I've contributed to them several times, but it seems all my contributions have been wasted on further solicitations to me... I can't imagine the postal cost for all the junk mail they've sent me... Seems they could have run a few TV commercials instead... I can't afford to send $$$ every time they ask for it... I'm actually getting a bit fed up with it & don't send $$$ anymore... I was going to join my wife, but I didn't want to double the junk mail they send me... .....It's a bit ridiculous
