We have been informed that 3 new Air Rifle Target Shooting Clubs have opened in Lincolnshire.
Click below to get the details for Yarborough Target Shooting Club, Skegness Target Shooting Club and Grantham Target Shooting Club.
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.
Please complete the survey at the following link: http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/FETLONDON
We would like to offer our sincere apologies to the competitors and the families of those concerned for the omission of two key results tables in the current (Spring) edition 801 of 'On Target' magazine. We would also like to offer our sincere apologies for an error in the results table for the Men's Air Rifle competition.
These errors are highly regrettable and we would like to emphasise that this was a genuine mistake made during the magazine compilation process. We have taken steps to ensure such omissions do not re-occur when preparing and editing articles for publication in future. Competitors were notified of all results by email on the 23rd March.
In addition to this notice, we will publish the missing results and correct results for Men's Air Rifle Competition in the next (Summer) edition 802 of the magazine.
Competition 17: British Sporter Rifle (Championship)
Competition 18: Sporter Rifle Standing (Competition)
