Not sure how much support there was from the NRA when I took the course- my certificate from '84 only indicates WI DNR. However, I also generally supported the NRA when I was younger (without ever joining). My years of participation in "rifle club" (SWRA) as a kid and the annual deer hunts gave me a modest level of exposure to firearms and I valued the support of an organization that I felt promoted my interests.
I agree, it has been disheartening to see the evolution of their agenda.
