In the Autumn Edition of On Target we published an article called UNDER THE HAMMERLI, featuring the Hammerli AP20 match air pistol. In the final paragraph we thanked Chrissie Monksummers, ISSF Coach, for importing the guns from Germany. We would like to make clear Chrissie is not an importer and the statement concerned was made in error.

The NSRA wish to apologise for this inaccuracy and sincerely apologise for any misunderstanding this may have caused. An apology to this effect will also appear in the Spring Edition of On Target.


J. LloydAt the NSRA Shooting Council meeting, held on 23rd November 2019, John Lloyd, an existing member of the Board of Management, was elected as Chairman of the Association by the Shooting Council following a proposal by Richard Watchorn the Treasurer of NSRA.

John has been a member of the Board for about twelve years and in that time has also been Chairman of the Pistol, Air and Crossbow Committee for the past eight years.

The NSRA would like to thank Stuart for his contribution which can be sung to the tune "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen".

Why are my hands so freezing cold
I can not feel the trigger
I've pulled a shot at four o/clock
It could be eight or bigger
I'm sure my hands will soon warm up
When I have left the range
Too late then to get a decent score
Too late then
Far too late to get a decent score.

With great regret it has been decided that the EGM due to be held at LRC at 10.30am on Saturday 14th December, be cancelled.

There is possibly an issue with the Charities Commission concerning the alteration of the objects clauses of the proposed new Memorandum and Articles and it would be unwise to proceed before it is definitely concluded. Also a number of members have made proposals to vary the proposed new Articles and it is felt that more time is needed to work through all these proposals.

No date has been set for the new EGM but it is likely to be in March 2020.

The organisers of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games have defended their decision to exclude shooting from the programme.

The move has proved highly controversial, with India threatening to boycott the event if the sport is not reinstated.
