Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the association would be to "promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis," according to a magazine editorial written by Church.

After being granted a charter by the state of New York on November 17, 1871, the NRA was founded. Civil War Gen. Ambrose Burnside, who was also the former governor of Rhode Island and a U.S. Senator, became the fledgling NRA's first president.


Formed in 1961, The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) is the trade association for the firearms and recreational shooting sports industry. The purpose of this website is to foster a more free and accurate exchange of information about all aspects of hunting and the target shooting sports between industry and public, the media and their audiences, and within the industry.
