Airsoft retailers, distributors, manufacturers, and field owners met on January 15th in Las Vegas at SHOT Show 2014 to begin the formation of the Recreational Shooting Sports Association (RSSA). The RSSA, which would also include representatives from the air gun and paintball industries, would be an industry association that protects and promotes the recreational shooting sports industry. Unlike the Airsoft Safety Foundation (ASF), which preceded it, the RSSA will have a full time staff, ongoing funding, and lobbyists to work with all levels of government across the nation.
A working group led by Jay Snider, CEO of Airsoft Megastore, has been formed to finalize the incorporation, bylaws, memberships, and contributions of all participating industries. We will provide more updates on the formation of the RSSA as more progress is made!
