    I took the plunge - sent in my ATA Life Membership dues today. I could have waited four years and got it at half price when I turn 65, but why not support now an organization I believe in? I've been an annual member for Twenty-four of the thirty years since 1978, so I guess it's about time to commit.

    If your in your teens I say yes but if your in or past 40 you will have to sit down and think about how much more shooting your going to do. I at my age will say no to the cost.

    Congrats Poca! I did that too a few days ago! Aways wanted too, but didn't have the extra $, just happened I did this time. I just feel I am contributing to the future of trapshooting myself.

    Just a small way I can help make a difference for my boys. I will probably get them a Life membership here in a few yrs. also to the NRA.

    Not me, I'm 70 years old and I couldn't live long enough to benefit. I wish I had back in 1965 when I started shooting registered targets. It was cheap then. RG

    I'm glad I bought into the Life Membership deal back when I did, not sure but it was either $50 or $75 at the time, but that was a lot of money way back then ... "Congratulations" Larry but skip the pet thing, its not worth it ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Several have posted that a life membership is not the most economical choice for them but they seem to have overlooked a key phrase in pocatello's post--"
    but why not support now an organization I believe in?".

    Larry decided to become a life member not because of the benefits it would give him, but for the benefit he could give the ATA.

    What ever it is that is making people sign up for life membership, it must be traveling around. It hit me too.

    Cost/age wise, there is no way I should have signed up for it. But,I've always wanted to and so I did it.

    I figure if I live to be 92 or so, it will really start to pay for itself.

    Now, just stick around and see if I make it that long.

    Oz, I don't know whether your message was directed to me specifically, but I have been an NRA member for over 30 years, and a lifer for well over 25.
