Membership Services, Armouries and Cancellation of Competitions and Training

Earlier this week we announced the suspension of all civilian shooting on rifle and shotgun ranges operated by the National Shooting Centre at Bisley; military and police firearms training on Bisley ranges will continue.

Please note the following:-

Membership and NRA / NSC Services

NRA / NSC staff will continue to provide assistance by telephone, email and post during normal office hours, Monday to Friday. We have decided to “furlough” many of our staff due to the reduction in activities at Bisley; they will hunker down at home to wait for the virus to ebb away.

Competition and Training Cancellations

We have decided to cancel all NRA competitions and training courses up to 31st August; this includes the Imperial and Phoenix meetings. This decision has not been taken lightly; however the health and well-being of competitors, officials and staff must be our priority. We will keep the position under review in the hope we can offer a suite of “post corona” competitions in the autumn. Training courses will recommence when it is safe to do so. Payments made for courses, accommodation and Phoenix Arms Fair stands will be carried forward or refunded.

Armouries

Firearms stored in the NRA armouries can be accessed by prior arrangement only, Monday to Friday.

These arrangements will be subject to constant review; further updates will be posted to the NRA website and Facebook page.
