Thanks to the sterling efforts of our volunteers from Goodyear Rifle Club and the multi-skilled digger operators from Ridgewood Contractors the outdoor range at NSRA Aldersley will reopen on Monday 29 March for .22 rimfire and air.

The reopening will be in accordance with the latest NSRA Guidelines and Government Roadmap for England

Here are the steps to follow:

New Antique Firearms Legislation has now been published and is available at:


This includes the new definition of ‘antique firearm’ that will come into effect on 22 March 2021 and a transitional period for licensing etc. of former antique firearms will run for six months until 21 September 2021.

Anyone who has either applied for or renewed a Firearms or Shotgun Certificate recently will have encountered the need to get a medical check carried out by their GP before the certificate will be granted. This has caused major issues for some in that the GP may refuse to carry out the service. Others have experienced delays or found the cost incurred in doing it is inordinately high.

We are pleased to advise the Shooting Council Minutes – 25 July 2020 have been amended and are now in the correct page order including the previously missing page 13.

Currently, the law relating to air guns allows people between 14 and 17 to shoot unsupervised on private land. The Firearms Safety Consultation seeks to change that and say that all shooting must be supervised. This will clearly have a negative impact on shooting in the field but also on clubs and associations by requiring unnecessary supervision.


Is mental health and wellbeing now business critical for sports organisations?
