Please note that due to the ongoing target issues where some targets are still unavailable and others have only recently become available, we are extending the shoot by dates for Stage 1 of the Eley Postal Competition to the 11th March 2019:

The Great Britain Team for the 2019 Dewar Match will be selected following the trial held at Appleton Rifle Club, near Warrington, on Saturday 15th June 2019. Those who have already qualified for the trial include the top 40 shooters in the Class X or Class A Championship Aggregate at the 2018 Rifle Meeting, the qualifying score being 2,673. Also qualified are the top eleven shooters in the Scottish Meeting Grand Aggregate 2018 who did not enter the Bisley Grand Aggregate.

The quality control of NSRA Targets is continuing and NSRA staff are working hard to correct the issues created by the printers. We are attempting to keep everyone informed of progress via the website and are happy to answer questions from clubs, associations and individuals enquiring about targets and the effect it is having on their competitions.

The majority of people are being very supportive through this process and are appreciative of the difficult situation and the degree of time and effort it is taking to correct. However, a small number of people are contacting NSRA members of staff and behaving in an inappropriate way.

Abuse of staff of any kind whether by email, telephone or in person will not be tolerated.

We understand the frustration that this problem is causing for our clubs and individual members but please try to understand our position and the effort that the staff are putting in on your behalf.

We will organise the replacement of targets as stock from the printers allows. Please do not send in requests for other targets until notice is given that they are in stock. We want to be fair to our clubs and individual members but also deal with the issue with our printers in a reasonable way. For this reason we will replace any targets that:

We are continuing to deal with them in priority order based on their competition use and are still working hard with our printers to correct their printing issues. We are releasing targets for sale as and when we are satisfied with their quality.
