Hey Ruger Lady. my apologies, I didn't see this message until now for some reason. I just haven't looked at my own profile to see that the message was there, and for some reason it didn't email me or I missed the email. I did not have to join NYSRPA to get the emails. I simply went to the home page nysrpa.org and entered my email address, then clicked "Subscribe to NYSRPA-Alert." I am waiting and watching what they do before I decide whether or not to support them. I am still on the fence about them, so we'll see how it goes. Keep up the fight in NY!
