    I see a lot of mentions about VCDL but not much about VSSA. Is the latter worth joining?

    VSSA is the traditional NRA-affiliated "state association." It sponsors shooting teams, competitions, etc. but it's not primarily focused on agitating for the RKBA. In other words, its role is much different from that of the VCDL.

    It used to be that joining a state association was one way to qualify to get a gun (typically an M1 Garand) from the DCM/CMP. Members that were actively involved in Service Rifle competition could even get bona fide M14's on loan. As I remember, this was a big deal back in the 1970's.
