Hello Florida Sport Shooting Association (FSSA) Members,
On behalf of your FSSA Directors, I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas, happy holidays and the very best for the new year.
Our FSSA membership continues to grow, and with it the opportunity for increased financial support to individuals and our various shooting programs in Florida. This year, FSSA has supported several junior shooters through our grant program. FSSA has also funded Florida teams at the National Championships. Several women’s shooting sports orientation events have also received FSSA support this year. Thank you for your membership and support of our state association. Your membership dues go a long way in sustaining FSSA's ability to support our shooters and shooting programs. Finally, a big THANK YOU, to the clubs, coaches, and match support personnel who continue to volunteer their time and resources to run shooting events and offer training. It is needed, and very much appreciated.

Gateway Rifle & Pistol Club
Saturday, Nov 17th, saw nearly 70 women from all across our community come to learn about and practice shooting firearms. The event, hosted by Gateway Rifle & Pistol Club in Jacksonville, Florida, provided the ladies with a short orientation to safe gun handling, and gave them training in personal protection, pistols, air rifles, the AR-15 rifle, and cowboy action shooting.
It was a full day of fun for the ladies. We started with a welcome from Gateway’s president, Don Hardeman, and a welcome from Ted Carter, president of Florida Sport Shooting Association and NRA Board member. Sue Carter, Ladies Day Coordinator and NRA Certified Instructor, gave the safety orientation, discussing the four rules of safe gun handling and what they mean.
After the safety brief, the women were split into five groups. They rotated through the different venues to sample different styles of shooting, as well as get a hands-on demonstration in personal protection.
