We have been informed that three new Air Rifle Target Shooting Clubs have opened in Lincolnshire.

Known as South Pembrokeshire Sport Crossbow Club (SPSCC) it will specialise in promoting 10 metre indoor Sport Crossbow target shooting.

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.

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.

We have an update for members of the NSRA in regards to Steyr LP50 and Variants - Semi Automatic Air Pistols.

The NSRA Whistle-Blowing Policy has been updated and can be found in the Codes and Guidance section of the Website or by using the following link below:

We request that all clubs read the following information in regards to Home Office Approval for Rifle and Muzzle-Loading Pistol Clubs.

We have been sent a list supplied by the CPSU of County Sports Partnerships who run Time to Listen courses for Child Protection.

In a letter dated 12 July 2016, the Rt. Hon. Elizabeth Truss MP, Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, responded to the report from the Lead Ammunition Group into "Lead Ammunition, Wildlife and Human Health". She states that, "In both instances – human health and wildlife – the report did not show that the impacts of lead ammunition were significant enough to justify changing current policy; we therefore do not accept your recommendation to ban the use of lead ammunition."

Some disturbing reports have recently come to light where Officers of Shooting Clubs have been contacted by telephone by someone claiming to be from the Club's bank demanding information regarding the Club's Home Office Approval, FAC and individual members' details - including FAC details and firearms possessed, personal addresses and more.

The new IOC Agenda 2020 calls for a number criteria to be met by all sports on the Olympic programme with the most immediate being; gender equality, event based sports and sustainability. This means that all events within each summer and winter sport are to be assessed on their own merits against a set criteria established by the IOC.

If any of your shooters attain a highest possible score in an NSRA competition and would like a certificate to commemorate the event, please complete and send back the form along with a cheque for £3.00 and we will sort this out for you. If it is not an NSRA competition, you will need to send the target along with the claim form and payment so that we can verify the high score. They can be used for any competition and any discipline.

Individual Membership WELCOME Offer

The Association has a special discounted price for individuals joining the NSRA for the first time as an Annual or Junior Annual Member, together with a bounty for the new member's club.
