NEWTOWN, Conn. — The membership roll of the National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) has topped 10,000 — an all-time high for the trade association of the firearms industry.
The major milestone comes in advance of NSSF’s Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) in January, where the association usually adds significantly to its membership totals. NSSF members include manufacturers, distributors, federally licensed firearms retailers, shooting facilities, outdoor media publishers, industry associates and individuals. Special member categories include Voting Members and Supporting Members.
“NSSF membership continues to climb because more industry-connected companies, organizations and individuals are aware of the many ways NSSF works to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports,” said Chris Dolnack, senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “Such growth empowers NSSF to speak with a single, powerful voice on behalf of industry inside the Beltway and in state houses across the country.”
NSSF members benefit from many initiatives in the areas of government relations, communications, firearm safety, increasing participation in the shooting sports, the SHOT Show, and discounts and benefits related to their business. “The more member support we have, the more we can help support and protect their businesses and their customer base,” said Dolnack.
