Rifleman, I only brought up those two examples of weapons the NRA has supported which my NRA friends (I am not a member of the NRA and have never claimed or wanted to be) feel are ridiculous and a waste of their membership dollars. And thanks for clearly illustrating what I stated earlier. These guys are hunters who joined an organization which dealt with hunting issues. They now feel their organization has been hijacked, and guys like you have the attitude that they are welcome to go someplace else. I had the same experience with the Republican Party. Along about 1980 it was hijacked by radical religious conservatives and I was kicked out of the "big tent." I now vote Democrat most of the time. To bad radicals can't start their own organization sometimes instead of high-jacking other people's.
