Feature Request

Hey, kids.
I was visiting another firearms forum and saw something I REALLY like. Along the top menu, along with all the other buttons, is a button titled, "Join the NRA." It takes the user here:

Join the NRA

We should have such a button.
C'mon, who's with me?

Hey there

Unfortunately the issue is not all gun supporters join or support the NRA, nor are we affiliated with them in anyway. As such, we can't lead members or guests to believe that we are, or that they should join up as many prefer to support their local organizations instead. Linking directly to the NRA in our navigation header would indicate a manner of sponsorship connection that doesn't actually exist, and could in tern burn some of the local smaller groups. For those members who wish to show their membership in the NRA maybe we could look into a badge or something to that effect?

Thank you for responding, Dayle. I urge you to reconsider.

It is true that not all gun supporters join the NRA. That is the exact problem that I wish to resolve.

I can't say that I've ever met a gun owner who did not support the efforts of the NRA. Just to get an idea, are there any Kimber Talk users here who do NOT support the efforts of the NRA? Anyone?

And I understand that your company is not affiliated with the NRA, and that the NRA is not paying you for advertising space. However, it is through the successful efforts of the NRA that you ARE able to enjoy the profits you reap from a gun-related website.

Is the Kimber company actually affiliated with this site and do they pay to get this advertisement here?

There is an NRA pop-up at the top of KT with a "Join NRA" tab at the top of my page??

Kimber is not affiliated with this forum, the forum is owned by a Canadian company VerticalScope. The majority stake holder in VerticalScope is Torstar Corp. It's funny that a Canadian company has purchased a majority of the gun related forum in the US.

Looks like one of our favorite places to buy ammunition is advertising quite a bit.

I only see it when I'm not logged in on my phone.
At home on my laptop I have ad blocker also and do not miss any advertising.
