Please not a political discussion! I'm 34 years old and have been shooting since I was 5 or 6. Started out with a BB gun then quickly moved up, under strict parental supervision. Shot my first deer at 10, competed in 4-H shooting .22lr out in Texas. I'm pretty much the run of the mill life long shooter and firearms enthusiast. I am a Law Enforcement officer and I believe in the right to firearm ownership. I believe in our rights afforded to us by the constitution as citizens of our country. I have never been a member of the NRA. Aside from the political entity of the NRA what benefits would joining the NRA do for me? I'm considering joining but I honestly do not know much about the NRA. Anyway someone please enlighten me.
