Sometimes the best part of joining a club or group is the free stuff. Whether it is a free T-shirt, free food, discounts at different places or some type of branded swag, getting something back for your money is always nice. The NRA offers its members many incentives for joining and by being a member you join the largest network of gun owners, hunters and shooters in the United States.
When joining the NRA for the first time, you automatically receive a free ball cap with the NRA logo, a membership card and a decal. You also get a free subscription to one of their four magazines: American Rifleman, American Hunter, America’s First Freedom or NRA Insights (for junior members). You can also opt in to receive e-mail updates from the NRA and the NRA-ILA letting you know about current legislation in your state or county.
As a member, you receive $5,000 in Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage ($10,000 for life members) at no additional cost. This insurance covers any accidents at or in transit to or from an NRA event, as well as any accidents that occur from the use of firearms or hunting equipment while hunting. The NRA also provides $25,000 for any member law enforcement officer who is killed in the line of duty. You have the option to get $2,500 in ArmCare coverage that will cover your firearms, air guns and archer equipment against theft, loss or damage. If you need additional coverage, the NRA offers life, property, auto, home, and casualty insurance through a variety of associate programs.
Once a member, you are privy to all sorts of discounts and affiliate programs. The NRA offers multiple types of affiliate offers such as credit cards, identity theft protection, moving and mortgage services, prescription drug plans, even a wine of the month club! Also, multiple hotels and rental car companies offer discounts through the NRA affiliation program. The NRA has a large selection of licensed products including gun safes, clothing and firearm accessories. The website includes a listing of all the companies offering discounts in your state. All types of companies offer NRA discounts, so be sure to see which places will honor your membership to save you money.
However, all the free stuff and discounts aren’t the best thing the NRA has to offer. Above all else, the NRA provides protection and defense for your constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
