At the meeting of the Shooting Council on 26th March 2022, a small number of changes to NSRA Rules and Regulations were agreed, and they are effective from 1st April 2022. A fully revised edition is available.
The changes only affect Rules 8.15.3 and 8.15.4 and deal with firing point procedures for deliberate and rapid fire rifle shooting respectively. The changes spell out arrangements for the conduct of shooting, based on current practice at NSRA National Meetings.
There will be some exceptions where the amended rules will not apply, in particular in three position and air rifle shooting, where competitions are being run in accordance with ISSF Rules rather than NSRA Rules.
