Virginia Shooting Sports Association

Orange, Virginia

Protecting the rights of Virginia's gun owners for over 75 years, the Virginia Shooting Sports Association (VSSA) was originally founded as the Virginia State Rifle and Revolver Association in 1938. Besides lobbying the Virginia General Assembly to protect the rights of Virginia's gun owners and sportsmen, VSSA also promotes the shooting sports and sanctions state shooting championships. VSSA is closely affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), and the Virginia Gun Collectors Association.

The goals of VSSA are to:

unite shooters, hunters, sportsmen, collectors and all other law abiding firearms enthusiasts to promote the safe and responsible use of firearms;

promote the development of the shooting sports and the facilities necessary to the shooting sports; and,

provide a united voice at all levels of government to defend the shooting sports, and firearms ownership.
