Outdoor retailer Gander Mountain will host NRA Weekend Saturday, Sept. 10 and Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016, giving customers the opportunity to purchase discounted NRA memberships and receive Gander Mountain gift cards.
Throughout the weekend event, store customers will be able to purchase NRA annual memberships for $30, and will receive a $25 Gander Mountain gift card in addition to the membership. NRA representatives will be on hand at all Gander Mountain stores nationwide to answer questions and process membership applications for new and renewing NRA members.
NRA’s legendary annual membership, which normally costs $40, includes a variety of extras, including one free NRA monthly magazine, $2,500 worth of insurance coverage for firearms, and a membership card granting them exclusive discounts and offers.
"Our customers look forward to hunting season all year long, and we're here to help them get the gear they need to get back outside," said Gander Mountain President Derek Siddons. "Gander Mountain is committed to providing responsible citizens with access to firearms and educational programs that promote proper use, care, safety and security through our partnership with NRA and our ongoing 'With Rights Comes Responsibility' campaign."
In promoting the NRA’s “gold standard” of firearms training, safety and education, NRA representatives will provide introductory firearms safety seminars, teaching participants the basics of safe firearms handling, proper storage means, and cleaning techniques. Additionally, the first 50 in-store customers each day will receive a free cable lock from the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Project ChildSafe program.
Even after NRA Weekend wraps up, Gander Mountain customers will be able to purchase NRA memberships in stores nationwide for $30 and receive a $10 Gander Mountain gift card and additional benefits.
"Gander Mountain is providing a convenient experience and great discount for the firearm community to purchase or renew their NRA membership," said NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre. "We hope the community heads to Gander Mountain to enjoy a superior outdoor retail experience and to learn more about the NRA and our Second Amendment freedoms."
Minnesota-based Gander Mountain recently launched the “America’s Firearms Supercenter” initiative in conjunction with NRA and the NSSF. The retailer, who operates more than 150 retail locations across the U.S., offers the “largest selection of new and used guns” in the country, with experience and certified associations standing by in store and online to help customers find the right firearm for them.
Gander Mountain also offers a Best Price Plus+ price match program, matching the best available locally advertised price plus 10 percent of the difference on firearms, certified gunsmithing, firearms customization, safety training and more.
