The NSRA is the National Governing Body for all Small-bore Rifle and Pistol Target Shooting in the United Kingdom, including Airgun and Match Crossbow Shooting.
We are based at The Lord Roberts Centre, within the grounds of the National Shooting Centre, Bisley, Surrey.
British Shooting have published the results of some interesting research into the benefits the Talent/Performance Pathway delivers for disabled shooters. It makes for interesting reading and will provide great encouragement to everybody involved in the sport with some positive news in this troubled year.
Throughout this year we have listened very carefully to your ideas and suggestions about how the NSRA needs to moderrnise. One of the most frequently mentioned topics is the need to renew and manage your Membership or Club Affiliation online. It is with great excitement we can announce our new Membership system will go live in early December and here is a taster of just some of the benefits you can expect. More information will follow shortly, including details of our new NSRA Rewards Scheme, so we look forward to improving our service to everybody associated with the NSRA. We believe this step is a turning point in how we communicate and work with our Members and Clubs and one you can start using straightaway for this year’s Renewal. We hope we have provided you with some positive news as this turbulent year draws to a close.
Thank you to everybody who has applied to attend this year’s virtual AGM which will take place at 12.00 on Saturday 28 November. We will be contacting successful applicants next week (commencing 23 November) to confirm arrangements including how to join the meeting. We will accommodate as many of you as possible to maximise the attendance. Please also note details of the rearranged Shooting Council were posted earlier this week (now taking place on Saturday 30 January 2021)
Amend: We are pleased to confirm our Zoom account will be upgraded to ensure everyone who wishes to attend the AGM can do so.
The NSRA wishes to apologise to all members for the following errors in the current annual report:
Shooting Council: John Buchanan is named as the observer for the Scottish SRA on the shooting council. We deeply regret any distress caused to Mr Buchanan’s family and friends by naming him in this role long after his passing. The SSRA also took part in the merger that formed Scottish Target Shooting more than two years ago.
International Committee: This committee has not met for several years since its role is largely fulfilled by British Shooting. We wish to thank all of those who supported this committee when it was active. As part of the modernisation of the NSRA the roles and structures of its committees will be reviewed in the near future.
Welcome to what is hoped will be a regular update from the world of NSRA Target Crossbow.
In the recent survey of shooting habits etc, 82 of you indicated that they took part in crossbow in some way or other. We would like to support this participation and increase our number by providing opportunities for you to take part in competitions and hopefully in the future take part in European and World events.
If you have questions concerning these critical safety areas please refer to the Firearms Security Handbook 2019 which can be downloaded by using the following link
Following the latest Lockdown in England, effective from 5 November, we are extending the last day for shooting the NSRA/Eley 2020 Postal Final to Thursday 31 December 2020. This applies to all Finalists across all disciplines and classes throughout the UK. All cards will need to be returned to Scorers no later than Wednesday 7 January 2021.
When the NSRA offices reopen we will as a matter of course reassess these dates should any further countrywide restrictions be mandated by Government.
