Connecticut State Rifle & Revolver Association, Inc.

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!

Attention all CSRRA Members & CT Residents 

According to the CT State Police, effective immediately, the SLFU will no longer allow private sales of firearms between two individuals; all firearm sales must be facilitated through a firearms dealer.

As an additional note, the Unit is currently 2 months behind processing pistol permit renewals (as of today they are processing renewals received 07/13/23), so send in your renewals ASAP. "State pistol permit holders are granted a 90-grace period to renew their permit. Permits expired beyond 90 days will not be renewed.

The gun bill that the governor signed in June takes effect Sunday October 1, 2023 and includes:

  • A ban on open carrying. Gun owners may still carry their weapons, but they have to be concealed.
  • The law also expands a ban on AR-15s and other so-called assault weapons passed in 1993 and updated in 2013. AR-15s purchased prior to the bans still can be legally owned, if registered with the police. But the new law closed what proponents called a loophole that allowed the legal sale of now-banned weapons if manufactured prior to 1994.
  • Limits the sale of handguns to three in any one month, increases training requirements for gun permit holders and raises the minimum age to purchase a semiautomatic rifle from 18 to 21, the same threshold as handguns.
  • Bans online sales of kits used to assemble “ghost guns,” firearms that have no serial number and are largely untraceable.
  • Increases requirements for safe storage of guns (all persons not just minors.
  • Sets more stringent bail, probation, and parole conditions for repeat firearms offenders.
