Welcome to ORPA. About ORPA

The Ohio Rifle and Pistol Association is committed to supporting the shooting sports, hunting, and our rights as Americans and Ohioans as expressed in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and Section 1, Article 4 of the Ohio Constitution.

Ohio is the hub of one of the largest competitive shooting areas in the country. It is also the home of The National Rifle and Pistol Matches, held at Camp Perry, the largest outdoor shooting range in the country.

Each year, thousands of shooters in many different disciplines visit Ohio to participate in shooting sports. From the National Matches to local weekly trap shoots and turkey shoots, Ohio is active in all phases of the Shooting Sports.

ORPA is committed to defending our rights as Americans and Ohioans to keep and bear arms and promoting hunting, safety, education and marksmanship.

We are affiliated with the National Rifle Association and the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
