We organize and promote programs and projects designed to foster shooting safety, increase the public’s understanding of recreational shooting sports, promote greater participation in these sports and the development of infrastructure at local shooting facilities.
The JHSSF was founded in 2010 as a 501 c 3 organization. The JHSSF is dedicated to assisting Jackson Hole residents and visitors in their pursuit of shooting related sports.
