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:

Exemption Certificates

Recently there has been concern raised over the legislation surrounding the sale and purchase of firearms and the impact of rules such as section 11/4 exemption certificates.

The kind of questions asked and comments made have included:
- What's the deal with acquiring .22 rifles on exemption certificates?
- If acquiring off an individual, presumably they'll need to tell their local police they've disposed of a firearm.
- What happens at our end?
- Do we send a letter to the police with serial numbers etc?
- Keep a record of what we have got in a safe place?
- I've acquired ammo on one before, which is simple enough - RFD keep s a log of who he's sold it to, we keep a log of what we've bought, and which members we sell it to.
- What about firearms though?

The Home Office have launched an eight week public consultation regarding the proposed implementation of new fees for prohibited weapons, museum collections and approved shooting clubs.

The scope of the consultation sets out to seek the public's view on how best to implement powers to charge fees for firearms falling into the above categories and to enable the collection of such fees from the licence payer. It is anticipated that if the new proposals are passed the fees will come into force in 2017.
