In March we set out our initial thoughts about why and how the NSRA needs to change in order meet the needs of our Members, Affiliated Clubs and all the shooting disciplines we represent. This statement of intent came about as a result of poorly and inaccurately communicated information about supposed changes to our Membership Structure. We held our hands up, apologised and committed to getting this right in order for the NSRA to be fit for purpose for the next ten years and beyond.
Following our statement of 4 May we are finalising a number of options for members, member clubs and other shooters who have already paid entry fees. These will be published by Friday 3 July with clear guidance on a simple procedure to follow and the timescale involved. Please keep checking the website and social media for further updates.
If you need to get in touch with the NSRA about an urgent matter, please telephone 01483 485551
Monday – Friday 09.00 to 15.00.
FAO all Firearms Licensing Managers and Firearms Licensing Portfolio Holders for guidance concerning the opening of shooting ranges.
"As such my guidance to forces is clear; any facilities associated with outdoor sports and physical activities, including shooting ranges, can now reopen, if those responsible for them feel ready to do so and if they can do so safely, and in line with related public health guidance."
