so i goto the gun range atleast once a month, most the time more than that. been looking into gun clubs lately and the benefits of joining. competitions and matches sound fun, seems like a good way to make some pro-gun friends also. isn't there some that you can get access to a private gun range once your a member right? im just wondering what the costs are and if it will be cheaper and better in the long run to join a gun club since i would be able to goto a gun range without having to pay all the dang time. i have noticed that the ones i have seen require you to be NRA member. i kind of have an issue with that because the NRA is not really for the second amendment in my opinion. there is better pro gun organizations out there that truly stand for the second amendment and with 0 compromise i would feel much more deserving of my money. again this is only my opinion, but i see it much like the current status of the health care industry. they will not treat people with cures because they can not make money off healthy people. so much like the health care industry the NRA actually wants there to be panic and fear to get more members and make as much money as possible and thats all it is i feel. they supported a bumpstock ban and red flag gun laws. so i am kind of against a organization like that as it seems they really just exist to want to make money, as opposed to actually fighting for our rights. they had alot of opportunities where they could have done something good for the 2nd amendment and they just stood by and did nothing. a good example is the hearing protection act.
