Michigan, USA – -(Ammoland.com)- David Coy is a Benefactor Member of the NRA and a current member of the Board of Directors, first elected in 1998. His committee assignments reflect his working-world and shooting backgrounds, which are to the Finance Committee as Vice-Chair, the Audit Committee as Vice-Chair, the Shotgun Shooting Committee, and Chair of the Investment Oversight Subcommittee of the Finance Committee. He has previously chaired both the Finance and the Audit Committees.
He is a fiscal hawk regarding expenditures of NRA monies.
David believes in a “NATO-Type” doctrine when it comes to defending firearms ownership rights. Any attack on ANY category of guns or gun-owners and shooters is an attack on ALL types of guns, gun owners and shooters. All such attacks must be repelled! No exceptions!
As an experienced and dedicated no-compromise Second Amendment activist, David does his best to spread the word about NRA’s good works and the vital importance of the Second Amendment. He authored the National School Shield Resolution adopted at the 2013 NRA Annual Meeting. He continues to engage in activities such as debating prominent anti-gunners at various events at Colleges, Universities and other places, giving testimony at the Michigan State Capital in Lansing on both pro- and anti-gun legislation, doing radio programs, newspaper interviews and speaking at numerous pro-gun events. He serves as an NRA Front-Lines volunteer.
He is an Ambassador for NRA’s Heritage (Planned Giving) Society; Member, NRA Whittington Center Founders Club; and NRA Instructor and Range Safety Officer. He has also served as a Boy Scout Merit Badge Counselor, is Treasurer for Troop 659 in Adrian, Michigan and has earned his Wood Badge.
Until recently, David served as Treasurer of the Lenawee County (Michigan) Friends of NRA Committee. This committee, which he helped found some 20+ years ago, is ranked as one of the top committees in the USA, having raised net monies for the NRA Foundation in excess of $500,000.
David has authored over 100 magazine columns on legislative matters. He is a hunter, a competitive trapshooter and a Life Member of the Amateur Trapshooting Association, and has registered more than 20,000 targets.

He also belongs to Michigan Rifle and Pistol Association, Illinois State Rifle Association, Indiana State Rifle and Pistol Association, National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association, Michigan Coalition of Responsible Gun Owners, The Fifty Caliber Shooting Association and other shooting and hunting clubs and organizations.
Education and training in marksmanship is one of the core competencies of the National Rifle Association of America. It is the reason NRA was founded and David wholeheartedly supports them.
Further, competitive shooting is a natural evolution of this process, because it validates one’s marksmanship training. Both of these core competencies of NRA are an important part of NRA’s rich heritage and culture and must be preserved, improved, modernized and expanded.
David resides in Adrian, Michigan, with his wife Emily, and two bird dogs; Tucker who is a Brittany, and Dart, a Springer Spaniel. Emily and both of their adult children, William and Robert, are NRA Life Members. David and Emily are members of Christ the Redeemer Lutheran Church (ELCA). David is an active Shriner (Zenobia Shrine Center in Perrysburg, Ohio) and serves as their Treasurer. He belongs to several units, most notably the Highlanders, and he helped form a new unit; a shooting club called the Zenobia Shrine Marksmen.
Please consider re-electing David Coy to the 2018 NRA Board of Directors.
