Memphis Sport Shooting Association, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the training of its members in the safe and proper use of firearms for sporting purposes. In time of war or national emergency, our members form an effective agency for training those eligible for military service in the use of firearms.
MSSA is affiliated with the National Rifle Association and with the Civilian Marksmanship Program. It was incorporated in 1986. MSSA was previously the Memphis Rifle and Revolver Association, which was incorporated in 1936. The MSSA range is conveniently located a short driving distance from Memphis at 9428 Old Brownsville Road, Lakeland, TN 38002.
The grounds include 185 acres of planned land which offers 8 Skeet Fields, 10 Trap Fields, 2 Five Stands, a 7, 15, 25, 50 and 100 yard Covered Pistol and Rifle Range, an Action/Practical Pistol Range, a Cowboy Action Shooting range, a 60 yard Archery Range, a 15 Station Sporting Clay Course, a 200 – 300 yard long Range and a 200, 300, 500 and 600 yard Long Rifle Range.
Each of these areas are equipped with separate target storage facilities, and where necessary, are partitioned with high earthen berms to ensure safety. Overhead baffles on the 50 and 100 yard ranges prevent a misdirected shot from escaping the firing area. Firing is restricted entirely to proper paper targets, or approved silhouette targets correctly hung in appropriate firing areas. Plinking or firing at cans, bottles, etc., is strictly prohibited. Indoor restrooms are available at the clubhouse and on the covered firing line of the rifle and pistol ranges.
Note: MSSA club rules require that all shooters on the firing line utilize eye and ear protection, and no firearms are to be discharged before 8:00 am on any given day.
The MSSA office is located in the main clubhouse. The office and ranges are open seven days a week from 8:00 AM until sunset.
The MSSA office and ranges are closed on New Year’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
