To become a life member of the NRA, go to the Join the NRA page available on Home.NRA.org, as of May 2015. Click on the Life Member link, enter your information and activate your membership.
Visit Home.NRA.org, and click on Join. Click on Join the NRA. On the Join NRA page that pops up, the Life Member link is located under step one.
On the Life Member page, select your membership level under step one. The membership level determines how you pay for your Life Member fee. You can pay the entire fee immediately, or divide it into either quarterly or monthly payments. Enter your information, including your name, email address and physical address, under step two.
The membership includes a free, optional magazine subscription. Select a free primary magazine and a secondary magazine under step three. Magazines such as "American Rifleman," "American Hunter" and "America's First Freedom" are available in print or digital form. Select No Magazine for either if you don't want it.
Under step four, enter your payment method. Payment options include a credit card and PayPal. Click Activate Your Membership to complete the process.
The Life Member includes all standard NRA membership benefits. Each Life Member also receives a credentials package, which includes a certificate, shooter's patch, lapel pin and decals.
