The NSRA is the National Governing Body for all Small-bore Rifle and Pistol Target Shooting in the United Kingdom, including Airgun and Match Crossbow Shooting.
We are based at The Lord Roberts Centre, within the grounds of the National Shooting Centre, Bisley, Surrey.
The NSRA are looking to select a small number of members to become part of a new NSRA Legislation Working Group. These will be volunteer positions and those selected will assist the association in its continuing fight against legislative changes that could damage our sport.
If you have a good understanding of the current firearms legislation and would like to become a part of the NSRA Team, please send in an outline of your knowledge and experience in this area and why you think you could help.

The Current Position in Relation to Targets
The NSRA is working closely with our printer to continue to test all targets to ensure the specifications are correct. We are continuing to deal with them in priority order based on their competition use and are still working hard with our printers to correct their printing issues. We are releasing targets for sale as and when we are satisfied with their quality.

Please note that due to the ongoing target issues where some targets are still unavailable and others have only recently become available, we are extending the shoot by dates for Stage 1 of the Eley Postal Competition to the 11th March 2019:
As your National Governing Body we invite you to ask us anything relating to the running and administration of your sport. We would like to dispel any myths, misinformation or gaps in understanding by answering your questions.
