NASSA Facebook Group
Very early in our NASSA Phase III Strategic Planning, the NASSA Implementation Team realized the criticality of having a strong NASSA Facebook presence. Critical in the sense of gathering and disseminating real time Rifle Silhouette information of special interest to our Rifle Silhouette community. Information that would also be a major feed source to keep the NASSA Website updated and relevant.
David Mackiernan, the founder of the Metallic Silhouette Shooter’s Society (MSSS) Facebook Group, joined the NASSA Implementation Team in August of 2022 as our NASSA Media Administration Director. The direct result is a MSSS merger with NASSA that brings with it over 2200 MSSS members and fulfills this specific Phase III Strategic Initiative.
So welcome to our new NASSA Facebook Group! Our NASSA Mission is to utilizing this and other NASSA Strategic Initiatives, follow the Lapua Monarch Cup’s lead, and unite our Rifle Silhouette Community throughout North America.

NASSA’s first NASSA Youth Programs initiative was the launch of NASSA Instagram in November of 2022. This multimedia platform, popular among our youth, now allows Junior Rifle Silhouette Shooters to network with each other throughout our NASSA Regions in Canada, Mexico and the USA. Now juniors can connect and stay in touch with friends they meet at Championship Matches such as the 2022 NRA Silhouette Nationals in Ridgway, PA.
Louisiana and South Texas are two states with significant Junior Rifle Silhouette participation. Juniors from both Louisiana and Texas travel back and forth to compete against each other all during their Silhouette match season. The NASSA Implementation Team met with many of these same juniors (and parents) at the Texas State Smallbore Silhouette Championships in November 2022 to discuss the launch of the new NASSA Instagram platform.
As a result of this meeting, the NASSA Implementation Team is now working with these same juniors (and parents) to define their role in the administration of NASSA Instagram. Once this role and process is further defined, we will grow and share the administration of NASSA Instagram with select juniors across all NASSA Regions.

Along with establishing a NASSA Facebook Group, the NASSA Implementation Team also knew that a NASSA presence on YouTube would be a force multiplier and so this work was also designated a NASSA Phase III Strategic Initiative.
David Mackiernan, our NASSA Media Administration Director, had also maintained a Metallic Silhouette Shooter’s Society (MSSS) YouTube Channel along with his MSSS Facebook Group. As a result of the merger between MSSS and NASSA, David will also rebrand his MSSS YouTube Channel content to jump start this critical NASSA Phase II Initiative.
