    You get some insurance for your firearms and a discount at their firing range at the headquarters. As well as some other minor stuff.

    It's not really worth a lot in terms of direct benefits for you, but rather helping their lobbying.

    I bought one year for $20 at a gun show.... then I saw a link on their site to upgrade to a lifetime for $25.... so I did.

    Later I found out that might have been a fuck up since lifetimes are like $500 or some shit.

    Ohh well..... got my card that says lifetime on it!

    You don't get a whole lot, and you do get a bunch of junk mail. But I guess it's my way of showing I'm pro 2nd amendment and it gives the NRA a little more money to fight against the liberal aholes of our country.

    That's what I figure. It's relatively cheap, and they can work with government for me when I'm busy. I'm on the life membership with quarterly payment plan now. Also check out for local gun rights groups. Here in Oregon; Oregon Firearms Federation is great. They pay legal fees for gun owners and offer consutations with lawyers if you've been arrested or harmed for something you believe you should have been. Great group of people.

    I didn't join for any direct benefits so everything I get is a bonus in my eyes.

    The reason I joined is because right now, I believe it's the best place to put my money to ensure my 2nd amendment rights. I don't believe there is any other organization with the same clout/power as the NRA. They may not be able to stop some things, as local gun control laws still get passed, but they are a vocal and loud proponent of the 2nd amendment so they get my money.

    It may not be much money from me but if everyone joins, it can really add up and hopefully do some good.

    When I heard the story of the government taking away law abiding citizens guns down in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina, I was shocked that such a thing could occur in America. Not only is the NRA now focused on getting emergency powers removed from current laws, they are also suing city/govt officials because of these actions. Hopefully this will send a message to other states that this sort of behavior isn't acceptable.
