NSRA Rules

The activities of the NSRA are governed by a number of sets of rules, each to meet specific purposes.

NSRA Rules and Regulations contain the basic rules for the conduct of shooting events. The most recent substantial review was in 1998 and the approved rules were published in 1999. Amendments, additions and clarifications are implemented from time to time, subject to the approval of the Shooting Council. However such changes only take effect on 1st April next following the date of approval.

NSRA Rules and Regulations are also available in printed form (A5 loose leaf) from the Showroom, price £3.00. (Code 15.100.2100)

Available separately are the rules for NSRA Sporter Air Rifle, the Junior Development Programme introduced in 2005. It is based on the use of lightweight air rifles for shooting in three positions and is modelled on the long-established programme in the United States.

Also available is a Clarification of the Rules for Benchrest Shooting (Rules and Regulations 8.16) that can be downloaded separately.

As a registered company, the NSRA’s constitution is contained in its Memorandum and Articles of Association. These are rarely altered and the last changes were a complete revision of the Articles of Association approved in July 1985.

Standing Orders of the Shooting Council, most recently adopted in 1998, are the administrative rules covering the activities of the Council.
