It is with regret that PAC have had to cancel the British Long Arm Pistol Championship due to take place on Sunday 23rd September due to insufficient entries. We wish to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
I wanted to take an opportunity to let you know about some upcoming events and fill you in with the latest news from the NSRA Competitions Team. If you wish to opt out of e-mails, please reply to let me know and I will remove you from the circulation list.
The Pistol Airgun and Crossbow Committee are pleased to announce that the British Open Airgun Championship (BOAG) is returning to its usual February timeframe for 2019 and will focus on 10m events only. The event will take place at the Lord Roberts Centre, Bisley on the 22nd to 24th February. A separate Pistol Championship will be held at the same venue on the 21st to 22nd September 2019.
Bisley week is happening right now, have a look at the photos from today...
Winter 2018/19 Postal Competitions
Entry forms have been distributed to all individual members of the NSRA and club copies have gone to the Club Secretaries with their latest edition of the ‘On Target’ magazine. As well as the normal array of competitions encompassing Prone, 3P, LWSR, Airgun and Benchrest, there are a number of new competitions that I wish to draw your particular attention to:
Following the successful pilot project for online shooting clubs, all applications for approval (new or renewal) should be submitted directly to the Home Office via the web portal, at the link below. This applies to all clubs in England and Wales. Applications will only be accepted by the Home Office, and should no longer be sent directly to the police.
The NSRA acts as “sponsor” for people wishing to bring their firearms to mainland Britain to shoot in NSRA events. The Association administers the applications in conjunction with Surrey Police who issue the Visitor’s Permit.
Due to issues involving visitors to Britain in other Police Authorities, there have been some changes to the way the Police are administering this service.
