Please be aware that unless you have correctly completed and returned your club re-affiliation paperwork for 2016, your club will not be insured. We are unable to make any exceptions to this ruling as our underwriters will not accept claims made if the correct paperwork has not been submitted and received at our NSRA offices.
Please note that if you have already submitted your renewal paperwork, your club will be covered by our insurance, providing this is complete and correct. Any slight delay you may experience in receiving confirmation of your renewal is due to the Christmas / New Year break and the resulting volume of work we have to process.
To avoid unnecessary telephone calls and if you have yet to send in your renewal paperwork, please refer to the letter sent to you in October 2015, detailing the relevant forms for completion, the information required and the club renewal fee payable for 2016.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding during what is for us a very busy time of the year.

We have recently been advised of an error on Page 46 of the Summer Edition of 'On Target' magazine.
Under the Disciplinary Action notice, we stated that Mr Stuart Prouse was a member of Swarland 592 Club in Durham County. However, this should have read, Swarland 592 Club in Northumberland.
We would like to offer our apologies for this error and any confusion this information may have caused.
A new club catering for the NSRA discipline of Sport Crossbow has been inaugurated.
Known as South Pembrokeshire Sport Crossbow Club (SPSCC) it will specialise in promoting 10 metre indoor Sport Crossbow target shooting.
The NSRA, via the Pistol, Airgun & Crossbow Committee (PACC), have recently launched a National Sport Crossbow competition which is open to both NSRA members and others who may wish to enter this sport.
Steyr LP50 and Variants:
Section 5 Firearms:
Following discussions with our local Head of Firearms Licensing, it is confirmed that the Steyr LP50 air pistol does not have a self-loading mechanism and therefore in their opinion does not constitute a prohibitive weapon under Section 5 (1) of the Firearms Act 1968.
These findings have been agreed with NABIS.
This announcment follows a previous statement posted on the NSRA website on the 8th December 2016, notifying all members that while clarification was being sought, Home Office advice was that these pistols should not be imported or sold.
While the NABIS conclusion remains an 'opinion', albeit one which the courts are unlikely to ignore, this news enables all retailers to start stocking and selling the Steyr LP50 once again.
Disciplinary Action: Mr Stuart Prouse
Mr Stuart Prouse of the Swarland 592 Club in Northumberland has admitted the fabrication of scores in a Local Scoring League and the Association has taken disciplinary action against him for the offence. The following penalties have been applied:
Mr Prouse was banned for two and a half years and the ban will commence on 1st April 2017 and run until 1st October 2019.
The ban appertains to Mr Prouse specifically and not his club.
The Metropolitan Police have asked us to post a short 20 question online survey, asking certificate holders for their feedback following any transaction they may have had (i.e. grant, licence renewal etc.) with the Licensing Authorities.
The survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete.
Please note that the survey applies to Met certificate holders only.
