Industry and Trade Associations Overview.
National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).
National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW).
The NASGW is the organizer and sponsor of the NASGW Annual Meeting/Expo Event. This annual event provides an unmatched educational, marketing and communications opportunity for the hunting and shooting sports wholesaler, manufacturer and sales professional. The NASGW serves as a liaison with other sporting goods associations, including the National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA), The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation(CSF), The National Rifle Association (NRA), The National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses, and is also a member of The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW).
The organization has the primary goals of achieving the efficient development and implementation of Spanish and European Union regulations surrounding the arms trade and urging the attainment of European harmonization regarding the C.I.P. Testing Bench system. The C.I.P. ensures that every civil firearm and all ammunition sold in all 14 C.I.P. member states are safe for end users. To achieve this, the firearms and ammunition are all professionally proofed at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses before they can be sold to consumers. We believe C.I.P. Testing Benches should be used by Proof Houses in all C.I.P. Member States and those Benches should integrate their respective databases into those held by the Member States and sector operators (such as Inceptor Ammunition).
