Urgent Notice to All Club Secretaries

Please be aware that unless you have correctly completed and returned your club re-affiliation paperwork for 2016, your club will not be insured. We are unable to make any exceptions to this ruling as our underwriters will not accept claims made if the correct paperwork has not been submitted and received at our NSRA offices.

Please note that if you have already submitted your renewal paperwork, your club will be covered by our insurance, providing this is complete and correct. Any slight delay you may experience in receiving confirmation of your renewal is due to the Christmas / New Year break and the resulting volume of work we have to process.

To avoid unnecessary telephone calls and if you have yet to send in your renewal paperwork, please refer to the letter sent to you in October 2015, detailing the relevant forms for completion, the information required and the club renewal fee payable for 2016.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding during what is for us a very busy time of the year.

If you need another copy of the forms, all 2016 membership forms can be downloaded below:

Steyr LP50 and Variants:

Section 5 Firearms:

Following discussions with our local Head of Firearms Licensing, it is confirmed that the Steyr LP50 air pistol does not have a self-loading mechanism and therefore in their opinion does not constitute a prohibitive weapon under Section 5 (1) of the Firearms Act 1968.

These findings have been agreed with NABIS.

This announcment follows a previous statement posted on the NSRA website on the 8th December 2016, notifying all members that while clarification was being sought, Home Office advice was that these pistols should not be imported or sold.

While the NABIS conclusion remains an 'opinion', albeit one which the courts are unlikely to ignore, this news enables all retailers to start stocking and selling the Steyr LP50 once again.

Spaces for Batch Testing with RUAG, Lapua and Eley are filling up fast.
