Hope this isn't straying away from the deal... but it's
still about the NRA memberships.

I want to do lifetime membership.... what is the all-time
lowest lifetime membership that they ever offered?(and
what are the chances that they will offer it again?)

Thanks!

The $500 price I see around fairly often and as I understand it the $300 is still offered based on referral from an existing lifetime member, but I dont know any lifetime members to ask them unfortunately.

I'd like to sign up, but frankly I don't want to advertise to the mailman or any neighbor who the mailman incorrectly delivers my mail to or anyone looking through my mail that I'm an NRA member. Broadcasting the fact that I support gun rights and that my house probably has guns inside it is a big personal security risk. I don't suppose the NRA has anyway to allow me to sign up without providing them with my real name and address...

They aren't wrong though. When I was a mail sorter we would input this type of information into a database (although it has been automated now). Even hunting magazines were recorded.

These days it is even easier with the Intelligent Mail Codes, we know exactly who sent it, and we already scan in the destination address for routing.

If you type in any address into the USPS system it will tell you exactly the mail classes that that household receives (down to specific catalogues, and numbers of unknown/uncategorised items).

As to the NRA, frankly I wouldn't worry too much, we likely already know you're a gun owner based on items you've previously ordered. Anything from a hunting/firearms online store and you're already flagged as a potential gun owner.

I'd ask you if you are serious, but I know better:

You could sign up under a nom ge guerre (pseudonym), and use either a "blind" PO Box or Private Mail Box. NRA doesn't care about your real name, just the dues.

My wife works for the USPS, and would love to know where all of this happens??? Is it a secret tunnel under the statue of liberty where the men in black work?

Hey maybe with all of their "intelligent scanning" they can take a few minutes and find all of the crap that they have lost....

You crazier than the other guy.

Some wildlife clubs/ranges require NRA membership to join, so I appreciate the OP posting this; even if I'm not 100% on the politics of the organization

As I said, it is all automated now.

I was a mail sorter, we routed mail, and recorded information about the mail. No doubt your wife works at a local post office, in order for it to get down to there it goes through a regional facility where it is scanned, categorized, and sent on its way.

These days most of this work is done by OCR (i.e. computer reading the characters on the address(es) and by scanning the barcodes for IMCs). Still all recorded however, just like then, it just doesn't require humans to do much of it.

We'd actually have law enforcement flags where, after the address was scanned, it could be routed to a special internal "address" that was actually the Postal Inspector (or other law enforcement).

I love being called "crazy" for telling you how routing is handled by the USPS, and what their computers are recording about your mail. Denial ain't just a river in Egypt.
