AccurateShooter.com ForumLooking Forward to 2019
Every year, we work to improve AccurateShooter.com. In 2016 we completely overhauled the Forum, making it faster and mobile-friendly. In 2017 we upgraded our servers to improve speed and security. In 2018 we started vetting every new sign-up to prevent scammers. And we have continued our popular Deals of the Week and launched a weekly Video Product Showcase. We hope you’ll continue to enjoy our feature articles, our Daily Bulletin, our match reports, and our Forum Classifieds. The formula seems to be working — our audience is bigger than ever.

Forum Membership Grows 14% in 2018
Our Shooters’ Forum grew significantly in 2018. Our membership grew by 14% as Forum ranks swelled to 43,200 members! More people are successfully buying and selling in our Forum Classifieds section than ever before. Silver and Gold members get unlimited Classifieds for 12 months. Gold members also get custom Avatars and other privileges.

AccurateShooter.com donation

We need your support. For 15 years the site has relied largely on volunteer efforts. But as the site grows, we need the assistance of Forum moderators, product testers, web gurus, and computer software experts. Those guys don’t work for glory alone.

Consider this — you’ll pay $20 for a couple movie tickets these days. For the same twenty dollars you can become a Silver Forum member for a YEAR and help this site provide info, tests, tech tips, bargains, and shooting news.

And consider the benefits — Silver or Gold Members get unlimited classifieds for 12 months. If you were to sell just one, single $1500 rifle through Gunbroker.com, just one, you would pay $58.75 in fees! For one sale!

In the last quarter of 2018 about 430 site users have donated or upgraded their Forum membership to Silver or Gold Levels. We thank all those who have generously contributed. But that still leaves tens of thousands of users who access the site every week without contributing. With more donations we can deliver more premium content and offer more services to our members.

Join NRA at Cabela’s This Weekend and Get $25.00 Gift Card

This is “NRA Weekend” at Cabela’s retail outlet stores across the country. On Saturday and Sunday, February 9th and 10th, the NRA will be offering seminars AND a special promotion. If you sign up for an NRA membership at a Cabela’s “brick and mortar” store, you’ll get a $25.00 Cabela’s gift card.

NRA Weekend Cabela's

Here’s how it works. An NRA membership booth will be at every Cabela’s store. You’ll receive a $25.00 gift card if you join the NRA, renew your membership, sign up a friend/family member or add a year to your membership. That’s right, if you purchase a year-long NRA membership you’ll get most of your money back to spend at Cabela’s. The gift card is not available online, not available by phone, not available by mail-in request. You have to go to an actual Cabela’s store. Got it?

If you chose to visit a Cabela’s outlet, your time will be well-spent. At Cabela’s stores, the NRA will host a variety of special events, including ladies-only seminars, and informational sessions on home defense, concealed carry laws, and firearm maintenance.

Join the NRA for $25.00 and Get $25.00 Bass Pro Shops Gift Card

Here’s a great bargain — maybe the NRA deal of the decade for gun guys. Right now, if you pay $25.00 for a one-year NRA membership (that’s $10.00 off normal price), you will get a Bass Pro Shops Gift Card worth $25.00. In other words, for every dollar you spend on your NRA membership, you get a dollar’s worth of merchandise at Bass Pro Shops. Imagine if you bought $25.00 worth of motor oil and got a gas card worth twenty-five bucks. Who wouldn’t jump at that? Well this is virtually the same deal. That $25.00 gift card can be applied to pretty much any merchandise in the Bass Pro Shops store: clothes, shooting supplies, hunting and fishing gear, even optics or a GPS.

Join NRA Free Bass Pro Gift Card Offer

If you take advantage of this great deal, you’ll also get a FREE annual subscription to one of three NRA-sponsored print magazines: American Rifleman, American Hunter, or 1st Freedom. (Junior members have the additional fourth choice of InSights magazine.) You’ll have to agree that a FREE magazine subscription sweetens the deal even more. CLICK HERE to learn more about this great offer.

Join NRA Free Bass Pro Gift Card Offer

You can fill out a membership application online, print and mail a sign-up form, or call 1-877-NRA-2000 to join by phone. But don’t wait too long — this is a limited-time NRA sign-up offer.

NSSF Offers $500,000 In Grants to Shooting Ranges

NSSF Range Grant ProgramDo you want to boost membership at your local shooting range? Then check this out. To help public and private shooting facilities jump-start their recruitment and retention efforts, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) will award up to $500,000 in grants this year to ranges around the country. This is the fourth year that the NSSF has distributed funding to qualifying ranges through its Range Partnership Grant Program.

“Having purchased firearms in record amounts in the last few years, people are excited about target shooting,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF senior VP. “We want ranges to tap into that enthusiasm and these grants will help shooting range managers test new strategies to attract customers.” Private shooting ranges must have a public-participation option to qualify. “The best way to increase participation is to enhance and promote shooting opportunities at the local level,” said Melissa Schilling, NSSF recruitment and retention manager. “We’re looking for unique proposals that motivate people of all ages to enjoy target shooting.”

CLICK HERE to learn more about NSSF’s Range Partnership Grant Program.

Deadline: Applications must be received by NSSF no later than 5:00 pm (EST) on April 19, 2011.

Who May Apply? Only project proposals submitted by and in the name of public shooting facilities, private facilities that offer the public shooting opportunities, or educational institutions with either public shooting facilities of their own or hunting and shooting sports curricula shall be eligible for funding under the Grant Program. Separate proposals must be submitted for each project to be funded. A group of ranges may band together and submit one proposal. IMPORTANT — This grant program is NOT intended for land purchases, for building or improving structures (such as club-houses), or for acquisition of range equipment and supplies.

How to Apply: Download the Grant Application Form (PDF) and submit according to guidelines.

$10 Off NRA Annual Memberships (Renewals Too)

NRA Membership offerIf you haven’t joined the NRA yet, or if your membership is coming up for renewal, then here is a little extra incentive. Now through December 15, 2010, the NRA is knocking ten bucks off the price of first-time memberships and renewing one-year memberships. That makes the promotional price just $25.00 — which entitles you to full “regular member” benefits including a one-year subscription to one of three print magazines: American Rifleman, American Hunter, or America’s First Freedom. If you are already a Life Member or fully paid up, consider giving a membership to a friend or family member. The NRA has been an effective defender of gun rights because it is 4.3 million-members-strong. That is a force to be reckoned with.

CLICK HERE to Join the NRA or Renew your NRA Membership for $25.00/year.

NRA free membership offer

UPDATE: This was a Year 2009 Offer. The Offer is no longer available!

Every day many web users stumble upon our Daily Bulletin in search of information on the NRA’s free membership offer. We first announced that promotion back in March.

Here’s the deal — The NRA is still offering a one-year FREE membership, but the offer no longer includes a free subscription to the American Rifleman, American Hunter, or America’s First Freedom magazines.

Still, it’s a good deal. The regular price for a one-year NRA membership is $35.00. This is a special web-only offer, available for a limited time.

CLICK HERE for FREE NRA Membership Offer.

CLICK HERE for a full list of NRA membership benefits, including insurance.

What’s the catch? Well there’s really none for the first year. However, you will be billed if you choose to renew your membership. Also anyone signing up should know that you’ll receive a lot of mail solicitations from the NRA. For this special web offer, the NRA also requires your email address and phone number. Please note — to enjoy all the insurance protections of the NRA you’ll need to fill out an additional form once you receive your membership number.
