Our History

The Connecticut State Rifle & Revolver Association, Inc. (CSRRA) was formed in 1927 with the purposes of promoting education and training for all CT citizens in the safe handling of firearms and to encourage the lawful ownership of firearms for sport and recreation. The association’s website has been established to keep its members informed on happenings around the state. It features news items, match results, articles from members and directors as well as other general information for our members. Your participation is also welcomed and encouraged!

Many volunteers that are dedicated to the shooting sports have been assembled to run your State Association. These volunteers develop and run the programs you enjoy. They also manage the affairs of the association on a daily basis. The annual meeting, which is for all members, is always a joyous occasion to get together. The annual meeting also provides an opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of those who have performed in an outstanding manner by inducting them into the Connecticut State Rifle & Revolver Association’s Hall of Fame.

We are a 501c3 Charitable Organization, so please support us!
