The Home Office has opened a public consultation on what they consider to be "Offensive and Dangerous Weapons". This includes plans to apply further restrictions on .50 calibre and MARS (Manually Activated Release System) rifles which are currently for target shooting.

The policy intends to remove the availability of these Firearms for civilian use suggesting they may be used for terrorism. The proposed changes will raise them from Section 1 of the Firearms Act where they can be held on a normal Firearms Certificate to Section 5 and so effectively banned.

We are understandably beginning to receive enquiries from NSRA Affiliated Clubs regarding the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which comes into force on the 28th May 2018.

The detail of the regulation is currently being considered by the NSRA, so that the best advice can be communicated to all members as to the implications and recommended actions required.

Should any member wish to access further information at this stage we recommend the following link:

We are aware that following an adjournment debate in Parliament on the use and control of airguns, the Minister for Policing and Fire Service, Nick Hurd has undertaken to review the regulation of air weapons in England and Wales.

On the 25th August 2017, 'Shooting USA' honoured legendary shooter Lones Wigger, by renaming the interior of its headquarters building the 'Lones Wigger Legacy Hall & Range'.

Lones was due to travel to this year's Bisley National Meeting as a member of the US Roberts team. Unfortunately however, due to health reasons he was unable to make the trip.

In recognition of his outstanding achievements and contribution to the sport, the NSRA had planned to present a special certificate to Lones ats the Bisley prize giving. The certificate was received on his behalf by the American team and presented to Lones during the hall and range renaming ceremony, which also happened to be his 80th birthday!
