Who We Are

Texas State Rifle Association was formed in 1919 to promote shooting sports and foster the spirit of competition in Texas. Today, TSRA has grown into an organization with 36,000 members, and is the premier firearms organization in the State of Texas. Our mission is protecting Texan’s Second Amendment rights, preserving the Texas heritage of gun ownership, supporting competition, and introducing the next generation of Texans to the shooting sports.

TSRA is engaged in a wide array of efforts. We maintain a full-time legislative lobbyist, we host and sponsor a variety of competitions, and provide insight and expertise to our members via publications, online resources and professional staff. Members can learn about legislation, Second Amendment initiatives, license to carry, women's programs, gun collecting, shooting ranges and local clubs, gun shows, hunting opportunities, access our calendar of events, and find quality services through our Business/Club Directory.

TSRA is proud of our youth shooting and education initiatives which are run through the TSRA Foundation. The Foundation sponsors youth competitions, trains coaches, assist clubs and local teams, awards scholarships, cultivates partnerships and hold events. Through the TSRA Foundation members can find information and assistance in getting themselves or their child started in shooting sports.
