I'm a Fudd. I don't write for any publications. I own mostly double guns. I support the 2nd as it is written which means military rifles are protected.

Those two statements contradict themselves.

NRA leadership

I hope to hell they get their shit together because they are pretty much all we have in terms of lobbying. As disgusting as lobbying is, purchasing politicians is the new or old normal. Without them every RINO in congress will fold up and try and be pals with the gun grabbers. Unfortunately, almost every non profit I know about is as freaking corrupt as can be believed. I just read about the latest efforts to audit the red cross and that organization is nothing but a self serving bunch of rats. In their Haiti relief effort, they charged a $2m management fee to "manage" a $4m donation. Corrupt beyond belief.

I was contributing to NRA pretty regularly in the past few years. $20-30 bucks usually when I got a mailing but for 6 months or so every time i get a solicitation from them I send the donation to GOA, I will continue to maintain my membership but I think for now the limited funds I can contribute go to GOA or MSI

We all know the NRA proper is in shambles. Is it still worth donating to the NRA-ILA? I want to do my part to ensure the latest gun grabbing craziness does not go unchecked. If not them, who else has boots on the ground on the Hill?

It's NOT a contradiction .

Revolvers Are fine options for SD .
Classic porportioned stock became classic, because they fit well, point naturally, and are quick handling .
AR's Are a Fad . A very Popular Fad, but a fad . And while with perfect placement, of specialized projectiles , a .223 can be fatal for Bambi , the best that could be said is that it squeaks into marginally minimally acceptable .
Figured Walnut is a thing of beauty, And functional . Plastic is functional , despite being butt ugly .
Mag dumps at the range are 99% ballistic masterbation . Aim, squeeze, hit accurately is the path to gain marksmanship skills .
Holsters are supposed to be made from dead cows


That said : The Bill of Rights generally , and 2A in particular Mean what they Say . And it applies to all the firearms , not just what I like . I spend a whole buncha of advocacy efforts defending things I don't personally get excited about , because it's a matter of Freedom , not any one person's preferences .

If you support maintaining 2A freedom, keep contributing to the NRA arm of your choice. But let them know your feelings about Wayne and the bloated board.

As the OP said, the NRA is the 500 lb. gorilla of gun rights lobbying. Without that, Bloomberg Money will buy Congress in one election cycle. And we will have nothing.

I disagree completely.
Take a minute and look at the legislative fights FPC and GoA are contributing to.
Support them! Don't give a dime to the failure that is the NRA. They are a waste of money.

NRA ILA was worth the money, until they dumped Cox.

NRA PVF was useful, supporting pro-2A pols.

During the 2016 elections I dumped plenty of green into the NRA. No more from me until Wayne takes a walk. I don't care whether he was/is any good at his job, he's tainted himself and the organisation. Time to do the right thing.

NRA is all about greed and self dealing for a comfortable Board enjoying the gifts of the gullible gun owners being fleeced. Send Money to Jim and Tammy Baker and ask for their prayers..
