Welcome to the Virginia Shooting Sports Association

Virginia's Oldest Gun Rights Organization

The Virginia Shooting Sports Association (VSSA) was originally founded as the Virginia State Rifle and Revolver Association in 1938. VSSA is the official state association of the National Rifle Association. VSSA is also closely affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), Virginia Gun Collectors Association, and the Virginia Wildlife Federation (VWF).


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.
