Sorry I couldn't help but point out how stupid it is to get history lessons from an anonymous forum on the same internet that has the exact information you requested from reliable sources. Its like finding out about physics by going to the library and asking the librarian what they know about it, but not letting then show you any books.
I'm sorry you feel this way. You can leave the discussion anytime you wish.

Or, you can assist me in learning everything I want to know about the NRA.

Or, you can let these yahoos talk you into joining them in being disruptive. You should ask yourself,... am I like them, or can I have a civil discussion with this Mouse clown?

That's your call. You can go and take those nimrods with you, tho I expect they'll stay because discussing ANYTHING based on facts sends these people into a whole new world of OH SAHT!

The purpose for this discussion is for us all to learn about the NRA from start to today.

Is there an issue with that coming from NRA membership?

Shall we continue?

I understand. You were just trying to help but CHM has internet and he knows how to use it. He can answer his own questions. It makes him feel powerful to have you doing things for him.

From what I gather their purpose continued to be to improve marksmanship, gun safety and to hold some shooting competitions. During the debate over the 1934 National Firearms Act they began to get more involved in politics and by the 1970's they changed from a marksmanship group to being a gun lobby.
I think they started out with the best of intentions but I feel the NRA as we know it today is nothing more than a group who's primary goal is to make money.
Thank you.

Are you privvy to who was it that manufactured the guns the NRA team used and how that all came to be?

I would like to clear this up - The NRA was founded in 1871, we've established that but would someone tell me what year the NRA began it's shooting competition sponsorship?
1874 appears to be when the first competition was held. Apparently the Irish Rifle Team challenged American riflemen, so the NRA put a team together and went out and beat the Irish for the Anglo-American championship.

Remington Arms and Sharps Rifle Manufacturing Company manufactured breech loading firearms for the team. That came about because again the Irish Team issued a challenge and Remington and Sharps wanted it to be their guns used to beat the Irish. It appears that that worked out well for them because the military deemed those rifles to be adequate for military marksman training.

Thank you.

Can this be translated as being the first time the NRA was involved in a major promotion for new firearm manufacturing?

I ask this because it appears that the success of the NRA shooting team was highly responsible for the US Military to begin purchasing breech action repeating rifles like those built for the NRA team.

Is that correct? If not please correct me.

Facts are critical.

I think that's a safe assumption. Basically it went down like this.
The Irish issued a challenged and the NRA responded. Remington and Sharps got with the NRA and basically said we got these rifles that will help you beat the socks off the Irish. The NRA used those rifles to win the competition and the New York Herald publicized the victory and the rifle that led to that victory. Remington and Sharps got military contracts out of it and the NRA was thrust into the national spotlight.

Fascinating.

So, I've learned (in summary) that the NRA was actually created to be a research group that did it's job and the result was a marksmanship manual.

Once that mission was completed they went into the shooting competition business. Their success with a new style rifle led to a military contract for an enormous amount of their new rifles.

Is any of that unfactual?

It's always been public anyone could join and compete, they formed a legislative affairs (lobby group) in 1934, when FDR tried to take away gun rights for the first time.

So they formed a lobby group and fought against FDR on gun laws.

Can you tell me what legislation that would have been?

There is no such thing as a breech action. It's breech loading. Meaning where the cartridge enters the rifle. The action is what manipulates the cartridge, i.e. bolt action, falling block action, lever action, etc.
