Two calls today. THe first call was a human being who was asked to remove me from the list. The second call came later in the afternoon, automated and had no option for removal. A return call only goes to an automated response.
I just purchased a new Panasonic Phone system that you can block numbers....this one just made the list. Thanks, Panasonic! The consumer can findly get even. Only problem is the NRA uses mulitiple phone numbers to bug people, I'll keep adding them.
asked to talk to my husband or else no one would speak.

Collection company doing business as NRA Group LLC or NRA Collections
Drop them a note requesting that they hereby cease all telephone contact including but not limited to computer generated calls. Request that if a legitimate debt exists it must be validated in writing.
Google the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practice Act and ftc.gov.
It seems the collectors goal is to annoy people with relentless phone calls until in desperation, innocent individuals call them and provide enough information to disqualify themselves as collection or information sources.
I was just seeking this info for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what is the Google's issue that doesn't rank this kind of informative sites closer to the top. Normally the top web sites are full of garbage.

Call our office daily, asking for the owner. It comes up NRA, but it's not the National Rifle Association. They are a low level telemarketing company that is spoofing their caller id to show NRA.
Buggers dont say anything, but they call earlier every day, 8:00 AM so far...
I get several call each day.
I didn't answer when they called, but I called back and got a recording asking if I would like to be put on their do not call list, I entered my number and hopefully they won't call anymore.
I get calls daily from this number. they do not answer. and when u call the number back u get a recorder telling you about NRA
Only lets ring for 3 or 4 times and hangs up before answer phone cuts in. Called back and followed Loris instructions. I pressed 1 for "more information" and listened to their message, then afterwards, they give you the option to end the call by pressing 2 or to stop receiving calls by pressing 3. I pressed 3. I had to enter my 10 digit number for it to be removed.

Hung up as soon as I answered. Receive this call roughly 3-4 times a day.

The area code here is 703, (for Arlington, Va., McLean, Va., and Tysons Corner, Virginia.) Keep a record, please, of the date and time of each call made to your home. Contact the Arlington, Virginia Police Department online and report that you have information pertaining to harassing calls from some group calling themselves NRA in the area code 703, telephone number 656-9940 and request that they be stopped from the illegal activity they are engaged in. You may need to file a report of the activity on your phone line, but it's worth it to get this kind of behavior stopped.
There has to be a way to shut them down! They call my office at ALL times during the day, everyday of the week. This has been going on for over a month now!
Just call them at 1-800-672-3888
.....press 0 for an operator and tell them to remove your number from their call list.....they call my office several times each week, asking for the owner (who is NEVER here). As the office manager, this wastes so much productivity in answering their VERY frequent and frivolous calls.
I called the number back (National Rifle Association) and got their recorded information. I pressed 1 for "more information" and listened to their message, then afterwards, they give you the option to end the call by pressing 2 or to stop receiving calls by pressing 3. I pressed 3. If they continue, I will file a complaint on the Do Not Call site.
The NRA is whos calling if you want the calls to stop call the number back press 1 for more information, sit thru the whole message of what the NRA is, then is gives you the the chance to press 3 to stop calls, then enter your 10 digit phone number. It says it can take up to 30 days but they will do their best to stop calling in a few days.
They called my house yesterday but did not leave a message. It seems that they call several times a day and several times a week but no message. Very annoying to say the least.
I answered because I thought it was someone else. A lady asked if I was "Mrs. Smith", I said yes. She asked to speak to "Mr. Smith". I said he was unavailable to which she replied that she'll call back at another time. I tried to look up the number but it is unpublished. I thought if your number was on a no call list these people couldn't call you.
They call my house 2-3 times a day. I never answer. Tried calling back to get options for the do-not-call list that someone had suggested. No options. They called me back in 15 minutes. My husband was a member. I have told them 3 times he has passed. I have emailed and returned mail stating that same fact. They just won't go away.
North Carolina Aug 27th, 2010
It is the NRA, sometimes someone is on the other line sometimes there is nobody. They ask for my husband and will not speak with me and hang up when I say he is not home. I figured out how to stop the calls though. Call the number back press 1 for more information, sit thru the whole message of what the NRA is and does, then is gives you the the chance to press 2 to stop calls, then you have to enter your 10 digit phone number, and that is it. They do have a stop calls system like most do you just had to listen to find it. So press 1 for more info then press 2 to stop calls, enter phone number and press 1 to send it.

Its the National Rifle Association looking for donations
Keeps calling asking for my husband. When I asked if I could help them they hung up on me.
I have received several call from this number. They don't say anything, they just hang up.
These people call more than freaking debt collectors. Go suck it people.
National Rifle Association. I KNOW. A liberal is in charge and we need our guns more than ever. Give it a rest already.
Calls come in daily. No Caller ID displayed. Only 703-656-9940. We never pick up. They never leave a message. Interestingly -- these calls did not start coming in until we started researching and interviewing home security companies.
Called. Tried to push poll us with screed about UN taking away our guns. A little research online shows the screed is bullshit. I am withdrawing my support for the NRA. I hate this bullshit and they are doing nothing to protect my gun rights any more.
They are so annoying!!!!!! They have been calling for the past week or so but not leaving a message. wouldn't talk
They call every day...usually around the same time, but this morning was different.
Received a call from this number 3 times and no one on other side. Who do we inform on their billing status?
They call 2-3 times a day. I don't answer. They are calling for my husband who was a member. I have emailed and called them letting them he is deceased. They just will not give up. They are so annoying!!!!!!
North Carolina Aug 08th, 2010
Does not leave message on answering machine.
Call's everyday and I finally answered. Asked for my husband by name, said he wasn't here. She said she would call back. Called again next day, I did not answer. They never leave a message. I called their number because of what I read on this site and took my number off their list. The message said it could take up to 30 days to remove.
California Aug 07th, 2010
Wouldn't talk yesterday or the day before, dead air like an autodialer. Tonight a woman asked for the man of the house, She said "Mr. (and MY last name), I said there there wasn't one. Then she said she didn't ring the right number and I hung up.
California Aug 07th, 2010
They have been calling for the past week or so but not leaving a message.
They've been for the past week or so, and hanging up as soon as I say hello. I don't get it.
We were getting calls from this number also. Usually it sounded like someone was there and hung up. I called back got their message that it was the National Rifle Association. Pressed 2 to hear more about them and then pressed 3, entered in my phone number and was able to remove our number from their list. It says it might take 30 days to remove it. We are also on the Do Not Call list. Do not know how they got our number or why they are calling us. We do not own guns, or oppose those that do. Call the number back and get yourself removed.
NRA...THERE IS A TELEPHONE REMOVAL OPTION IF YOU CALL THE NUMBER BACK
they call my house almost everyday !!!! they never leave a message !!!! HOW DO I GET THEM TO STOP???
It is NRA and they say our numbers were collected on a recent purchase of a firearm related item we did, of course this is not true so file a report at donotcall.gov with as much info you can get from them. Also double check your mail box for any missing/damaged letter (id theft) because somebody might be purshasing guns/ammo under your name or maybe is just a way NRA telemarketers do their "work" by harrassing people at home.
they call every day-wont leave a message. This morning it was at 8:10AM.
We have received six calls from this number. When I pick up the phone and answer there is no one on the line and then they hang up. When I let it play through to the machine they hang up after the message. When I call the number back I get the National Rifle Association and a recorded message about how sorry they are that they missed me.
Missed call. Called back and message says that I've called the National Rifle Association and they're sorry they missed me .
Hung up on phone machine. *69 revealed the number. Calling it got a recorded message from the NRA
7-28-2010 This is the Natioanl Rifle Association. I just had a call from 703-656-9940 and asked them if this was the National Rifle Association and he said "This is Dale Cline calling on behalf of the National RIfle Association." He wanted to play a recorded message about the Obama administration, "because you wouldn't believe what they are up to." For two months I have been receiving calls from this number and nobody was ever there. Finally I had the pleasure of telling them to take me off their damn list and don't ever call me again!

Female caller said my name twice to answering machine in surly voice. Offered no ID. I'll never answer a caller who fails to identify itself.

Caller ID says NRA. Wouldn't talk
New Jersey Jul 27th, 2010
Caller ID says "NRA". It is probably a collections agency. Several months ago another collections agency was looking for our son's bio-mom, who lives in another state. She is a piece of work and gave us hell for many years, never obeying Court Orders, etc. so I was glad to tell them everything I knew!!!! Hope they find her make her pay every penny she owes since she never paid for her own son. So, keep in mind, that collections agencies may not be targeting you, they may be trying to get information on some scum you know.
No one ever there, will not stop calling
They asked for my husband by name. Then said they were NRA when I asked if I could take a message. Have told many times not to call.
I wish we could find out the truth here ! ! !
I see claims that this is a collections agency (National Debt Recovery) yet when I call this number back it takes me to the National Rifle Association.
No, I do not owe any credit card agencies, etc.....so why are they calling me daily??!?!?!
I do not own a gun and have ever been a part of the National Rifle Association.
I think it is just another scam and if we are unlucky enough to get our numbers on their list we are just stuck.
California Jul 22nd, 2010
Sounded like someone was on the line, then hung up. They phone every day!!
They called my house Saturday but did not leave a message.
I've picked the phone up once to them and there was no one on the line. I wish they would stop calling me. I think NRA stand for National Riffle Association this is something im not interested in.
California Jul 18th, 2010
A very hateful man called my house and asked for my husband. I told him that he was not available and asked to take a message. He replied, "I am not allowed to leave a message." I am just about ready to tell this that old man where he can go if he EVER calls my house again. So rediculous!!
THey keep calling my house asking for my husband and I have asked htem to take me off their list as my husband has no desire to hear their 'updates'!! But they keep calling, what happened to the Do Not Call registry!!!
We've received dozens of these calls over the past couple of months. We don't answer, then, tonight I decided to answer and let them know that I do not want anymore call,.....well, when I said hello, they didn't answer.
Thanks for caller ID.
I'm getting called multiple times a day. Every time they call I'm going to call their home office at 1-800-672-3888

Anyone as disgusted as I am should call 1-800-672-3888
, punch "0" and when an actual person gets on the line, ask to me removed from the call list. I am receiving these calls several times a week so today I spoke with Andrew in the membership office. He did not enjoy my use of the english language and ended up hanging up. I have also sent an Email to them at www.nra.org requesting removal and also have contacted my congressman.
line was dead

watch out for a big scam from 809, 284, and 876 area code. It happened right here in USA right now. I strongly recommend reading the following http://affections.beautyhilite.com/2008/04/watch-out-for-following-area-code.html
Many times I've been called and no one answers!
would not talk, another time hung up on me while I was talking
Wouldn't talk - no sound on line. These calls come at any time of the day, any day of the week - at least 2 dozen times in the last wee,
For months now they constantly call my office number. Very annoying. Wouldn't talk/no sound.
North Carolina Jun 30th, 2010
Just for fun, if you are working or living in an environment that you could do this in, answer the phone whenever a suspected telemarketer is on the line. If you hear a real human voice and they start their shpeel, hold a gas charged air-horn to the phone & blast them for a second or two! You can get them from amazon.com for as little as $7.00 for the 1.4oz can or under $30.00 for the 8oz which will last a very long time if used in short bursts. Refill 8oz cans are about $16.00. Free Shipping often available on orders over $25.00!
Even if it's a recording, wait and see if a human takes over the call or if there is an option for them to start recording you, then blast them!
Don't get mad, GET REVENGE!
i thought there was this thing i'm on called the no call list? Those paranoid gun freaks should leave people alone. If they want to help our nation, lets roll back that patriot act.

IT HAS CALLED 2 TIMES THIS MONTH.
California Jun 22nd, 2010
We have repeatedly asked this caller to stop calling here. We're on the NO Call List! Now they call (several times a day) and just hang up. This is harassment! Something should be done to stop this. What good is the NO Call list?
called at 8:28:am - which is before 9am
Repeat Calls from this number. Upon answering there is no response. After 30-45 seconds the connection is broken. This has been going on for months.
Just received a blank call from the number. I have blacklisted the number in our phone system, it will never ring again. Everyone should have a Asterisk based phone system for there office.
Didn't take the call when I saw Caller ID name: NRA.
NRA membership drive. I listened to what the gentleman had to say. The drive is based on the premise that Obama has a secret agenda with the United Nations to pass a law banning guns for all Americans. So I looked it up while on the phone. Factcheck.org says:
Q: Has Obama found a "legal way around the Second Amendment"?
A: The administration’s agreement to talk about writing a United Nations treaty to regulate arms exports and imports is a far cry from banning possession of firearms, which Obama says he doesn’t want to do and the Supreme Court has said can’t be done anyway.
So, they were trying to scare me into joining, which I didn't do.

NRA call several times a day and as late as 8:30 TO 9:00 PM. I'M GETTING TIRED OF IT. I have told them not to call anymore. 06/04/10
North Carolina Jun 05th, 2010
Calling every single day!!! ANNOYING!
called Lincoln, KS number at 1:49 CST on 2010-05-25. No message.
Have had one call a day from these people for weeks and I'm rather tired of it. When I answer they say nothing.
Massachusetts May 14th, 2010
The phone rings Two or three times then stops. If answered, there is no response. I called the NRA at 1-800-672-3888
- Hit "0" when the automated response began, then spoke to a real person. He was very polite, took my number and said he would have it removed from the outbound call rotation.
I actually called the number back and a prerecorded message came on and stated that it was from the National Rifle Association and the reason they call was to update me on some information... so I hung up before
I got caught up. Call the NRA 1-800-672-3888
and after a few transfers they took me off their list.
California May 12th, 2010
Same as everyone else - caller ID said NRA, I picked up and there was nothing and nobody there
what happened to the do not call list
I WAS a member of the NRA until they started calling me again and again. I will never give them money again! I love my guns but I told them three times in a row to stop calling or I would NEVER give them another dime. They still call today 3 years later. WTF!
Have called several times. Usually three rings and then a hangup.
California May 04th, 2010
The NRA has been calling on a regular basis. I requested they not call me again. They're still calling. I also block their emails and they still contact me. I abhor guns and am livid that they have not been stopped from harassing uninterested parties!

Did not answer, no message
NRA, allegedly. I am not unsympathetic to Nat'l Rifle Association, but the "solicitor" was abrasive and I had to ask four times who he was. I would have thought being on the "Do Not Call Registry" would take care of the NRA; maybe it's another NRA.
Calls several times a day and I have asked them many times to take me off the phone list, and yet they still continue to harass me!
Tell them not to call, and remove you from their database.
California Apr 14th, 2010
i used online access to my carrier to block the number. we got call after call after CALL. now it can't get through. there may be a "*xx" service you can use to block it too. they are abusive. DO NOT ANSWER THE CALL
Saw the caller ID as NRA so didn't answer. How do I get off their list? Looking at some of the past postings I see some people are successful at getting off the list while others are not.
