    They have a huge direct-mail operation (yes, actual physical pieces of mail) repeatedly begging for money for their PACs. These include ads for various little tchotchkes you can buy to benefit the PACs, too. And every issue of their various magazines include political articles, warning about the latest conspiracy theories. They also publish detailed voter's guides, going to the level of state legislators. At election time, the magazine covers are custom-printed with the names of the endorsed local legislators of whoever that particular magazine is addressed to.

      But they get a big chunk of change from Midway... When you place an order, you can round up to the nearest dollar, and the difference goes to the NRA.
