NRAblog is bringing readers a glimpse at the businesses and associations who benefit from membership in the NRA Business Alliance.

The Bellevue Gun Club's Lance Kilgore wrote the following for NRAblog:

The Bellevue Gun Club is Washington's latest indoor shooting facility. The state of the art indoor range situated in a 32,000 sq. ft. building officialy opened it's doors on December 18th 2009. Currently we have 3 separate shooting bays. The pistol bay offers twelve 36" Action Target stalls, electronic target carriers, and 20 yard distance. The rifle bay offers 10 - 48" Action Target stalls, electronic touch pad target carries and 25 yard distance. The training bay is a 40' wide and 30 yard long open movement bay. It offers the ability to bring a vehicle or cruiser into it for security and law enforcement training and it will have lights bars with pa system installed in the ceiling for "real life training." The air system was designed by Carey's Heating and Air Conditioning who Specialize in ventilation systems for military and police department indoor firing ranges nationally. The air system is EPA - OSHA - NIOSHA certified and is monitored by the University of Washington for air quality.

All of our range masters are NRA certified. We offer in-house training by the nationally recognized Insight Training Center. If a firearm is purchased from the West Coast Armory Pro Shop, we offer a $25 discount to the already affordable new gun owner class. We support responsible gun ownership through affordable training and professional, informative staff.

High Brass Coffee

Kenneth Blair and Matt Parrish founded the Virginia-based High Brass Coffee Company in 2007. The pair joined the NRA Business Alliance in May of 2008.

“Our experience has been great,” Parrish said. “The NRA Business Alliance’s directory of businesses is a great networking tool. The benefits and discounts are awesome – but more importantly, we wanted everyone to know that the High Brass Coffee Company supports the 2nd Amendment and the rights of gun owners everywhere.”

So where did Blair and Parrish find the inspiration to found a coffee business aimed at outdoorsmen? “First and foremost, a love for coffee,” Parrish said. “Good coffee.” Whether coffee consumers are hunting, fishing, camping, shooting, or simply enjoying the great outdoors, Parrish says a cup of his company’s brew is sure to help get any day started right.

High Brass Coffee offers a large variety of coffees. As to whether any one blend can be considered their best seller, Parrish says it’s hard to know. “Because of our proximity to the Blue Ridge Mountains here in Virginia, our Blue Ridge Blend is a very popular choice,” he said. “Overall, the Black Powder Blend is probably our most popular. It’s a Sumatra based blend and it has a very rich, smooth flavor.”

High Brass has a local following but is working its way to the national level, and Parrish says the future looks bright. “We are both humbled and amazed at the support we have received,” he said.

NRA Business Alliance

Son Nguyen from NRA Field Operations brings us this update:

NRA Business Alliance members are currently taking advantage of many great benefits to help their business as well as support the NRA.

The Business Alliance program has recently expanded its benefits in order to provide businesses that support the NRA more great deals.

Companies such as Payment Alliance and Globalinx have teamed up with the NRA to provide discount services to business members on credit card processing and telecommunication services. Countless businesses have taken advantage of the great rates Lockton Risk Services has provided for liability insurance. Lockton has now added a new health insurance program for small businesses and their employees.

In addition to the savings, a percentage of the proceeds will go back the NRA to help protect your 2nd Amendment rights. Members will also be able to open accounts with Corporate Express, a Staples company to receive discounts on office supplies. FedEx will offer shipping discounts starting December 2008. All Business Alliance members will still be able to take advantage of current benefits such as a free listing on the online directory that reaches nearly four million NRA members as well as a monthly NRA magazine.

Please call 1-800-672-2582 or visit for more information.
