Access to MoD ranges in the United Kingdom


National Rifle Association

Published on:


The NRA continues to receive questions about Covid-19 Policy and procedures on MoD ranges in the UK.

We can confirm that there has been no change to Defence Policy and the supporting Covid-19 procedures for affiliated Clubs using MoD ranges. Club officials are reminded that range bookings should not exceed 30 people, members must comply with 2m social distancing rules and any local Covid-19 restrictions set by MoD/DIO range safety staff.

The Ministry of Defence Policy seeks to safeguard the workforce and civilians employed by the MoD including Landmarc staff from occupational exposure to Covid-19.

Club officials and RCO’s are reminded of the requirement to conduct a range recce prior to the booking and familiarise themselves with any recent changes to range orders and local restrictions.

Many target shooters rely on access to ranges on the Defence Training Estate . All members and licenced Clubs are encouraged to comply with Covid-19 procedures when on the Estate.

Please contact Nic Couldrey, Regional Ranges Manager, directly if you require further clarification.
