We are delighted to confirm our new online GoMembership Platform is now live offering you the means to manage your renewal more efficiently without paperwork!

The GoMembership platform is GDPR compliant with the NSRA remaining the data controller as per NSRA’s Data Privacy Policy.

To use the portal simply logon to HERE, gain access by resetting your password and get immediate access to your details and records.

Your login username to the Online Membership system is the email address you have registered with the NSRA.

You can use your username to request a password reset where you will gain access to the system.

Renewing your membership couldn’t be easier as everything can be done online, including secure payment. By using GoMembership, you will now be in control of your data and can update your information at any time.  Time and time again this year we have heard so many of you voice frustrations about keeping in touch with us and your own membership, often at times when clubs and shooting organisations have been closed during lockdown.

This is now a thing of the past. In order to make this as easy as possible, we have a member’s/club administrator’s user guide for your reference.  This covers the steps needed to renew your membership to the NSRA.  The guide can be accessed via this link below.

For a sneak preview visit www.nsrarewards.co.uk to see examples of what’s available.  Even if you are a not a member of the NSRA, you can sign-up to the Reward Scheme. 

If you wish to sign up to the NSRA Reward Scheme then you can do this through https://nsra.azolve.com/ using your username.   

“Paper Renewal” will effectively cease as of 5 December 2020 so if you renew online by 18 December 2020 and sign-up to the NSRA Reward scheme, the first 50 registrations ** will be absolutely FREE for you to start saving money from 9 December!  If you are lucky enough to be in the first 50 enrolments by 18 December 2020, you will receive a refund on your £5 payment.

We have been stressing for some months our commitment to change and become an NGB fit to represent you in the 2020’s and beyond. In fairness you have been telling us for a lot longer!

Following the announcements this week concerning what restrictions will apply from 3rd December onwards under the new 3 Tier system we have our updated our guidance accordingly. The following links and information now replace previous posts. This applies to England with regional advice available from the relevant devolved agencies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We will of course publish details of any further updates or clarifications that are forthcoming over the next few weeks.

UPDATE: Following questions about individual shooting in the latest NSRA Tier Guidance, it appears that this has been misinterpreted by some as meaning only one person may use the range at one time. This is not the case. “Individual Shooting Only” means one shooter per firing point per time slot allocated by the club’s booking system. There must be no spotters, assistants or spectators on that firing point at the same time unless it is someone from the same support bubble. It means there must be no group activity, which for the majority of disciplines, is the manner in which we already shoot.

The shooting centre at Aldersley will remain closed until 4th January 2021.

Although the facility could open for individual shooting,  the centre relies heavily on groups which cannot be admitted under the current Tier 3 restrictions. 

For this reason the decision was made for the centre to remain closed.

This consultation seeks views on a range of firearms safety issues which were raised with the government during the passage of the Offensive Weapons Act 2019. It contains proposals for how the law might be changed to mitigate the risks raised by these issues. It includes proposals for further, targeted controls on the security of air weapons and access to them by under-18s in England and Wales.Firearms law is kept under review to ensure it addresses emerging risks to public safety. This consultation seeks views on the following firearms safety issues which were raised with the Government during the passage of the Offensive Weapons Act 2019 through Parliament:


High muzzle energy rifles
Air weapons
Miniature rifle ranges
Components of ammunition

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.

Due to the ongoing Lockdown restrictions and with a number of staff self-isolating following a positive test for Covid-19 we have decided to rearrange the next Shooting Council. This was due to take place at 14.00 on Saturday 28 November but has now been moved to Saturday 30 January. A time will be confirmed in due course along with the format for the meeting but if you have any questions in the meantime please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We appreciate your understanding concerning this change and just wanted to provide Members with as much notice as possible. The AGM will go ahead as planned at 12.00 on Saturday 28 November.

We are pleased to confirm the renewal documentation will be mailed to you this Friday, 20 November so you will receive it in the next few days. Due to current Lockdown restrictions please complete and return as soon as possible to allow the small team still working to process each renewal in plenty of time for your affiliation to continue as before or with any changes you request. If you have any questions please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Some Club Secretaries have contacted BlueFin Sport directly and we ask you send any questions to our email address as BlueFin are unable to deal with enquiries of this sort. Many thanks for your understanding.

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.

"If you want to practice consistency, this is the sport for you"

Crossbow Update - No 1

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.
