Federal has long maintained strong relationships with the most prominent organizations in the shooting sports. These partners' advocacy and education legacy continues to keep our sport vibrant.

Partners

FIXNICS

Background checks are only as strong as the records in the database. The Fix NICS Act would increase records-sharing to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System at the federal and state levels by punishing non-compliant federal agencies, making more federal funding available for records-sharing, and incentivizing states to submit complete records to the NICS database.

OPERATION SECURE STORE

This operation is a joint initiative between the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to help Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL) make well-informed security-related decisions to deter and prevent thefts. Vista Outdoor also supports the FFL Protection Act, federal legislation that would increase penalties against those who steal from FFL retailers. Since 2016, more than 15,000 guns were stolen from FFL retailers, many of which go on to be used in subsequent crimes.
