NRA Training Course and Competition at Altcar Ranges - Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 May 2016

The NRA is running a CIVILIAN SERVICE RIFLE MARKSMANSHIP SKILLS COURSE at Altcar Ranges on Saturday 14 May, aimed at improving the shooting skills of owners of various CSR-type rifles. This one day course will involve both classroom and practical range work and is an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge and expert coaching from national level shooters and instructors. The course fee is £55 for the day, and this fee is discounted by 40% for Under 25s.
Click here to download the Marksmanship Skills Course booking form. Bookings close 1200 hrs, Tue 10 May.
On the morning of Sunday 15 May, we will be running a CSR COMPETITION. This is available to any shooter with a suitable rifle who wants to gain more knowledge, cement the skills gained from the Marksmanship Skills Course, or simply to enjoy a day out with fellow shooters.
The Short Range Match will be shot in four classes from distances of 100-300 yards. NRA medals will be awarded in each class with prize giving taking place on the range at 1300 hrs.

I'm afraid not it will only hold 6 rounds.

I have a Howa 308 with two 10 shot mags and a 5 shot mag,but it's not really a service rifle.

You could use either, the P14 you would have to reload on certain practices but there is time to do it if required. It is not an Enfield so would compete in Iron Sights Class. The Howa could compete in either Practical Optic or Service Optic class dependant on the scope magnification (max x4.5 for SO) and whether you have a bipod fitted (not allowed in SO Class but ok in PO).

 

So it does look like you have something thats suitable for the day to get the feel of what CSR is all about.

Do you know if there will be another chance at this later in the year? I've committed to driving to Sweden that weekend for the Eurovision (I know.....I know....)

 

Cheers

Not sure depends on how successful it is, it will be an NRA decision. However, Diggle are running CSR intro days as well so might be worth checking them out. Details are avilable here.

Not much at the moment but the NRA are prepared to give it a few more weeks. All the Club Chairmen of clubs in the North of England have been written to by the NRA trying to promote interest.

Maybe the date clashes with something else? I would love to go but that weekend is a non starter for me. Ill see if anyone else at the clubs I shoot at is up for it. I was hoping it would be oversubscribed and another date would be offered to satisfy the demand. Not sure why there isn't more interest as I'm sure lots of shooters have suitable gear for it.

This course and the match are definitely going ahead but numbers could be better. There is still time to enter so if you can please give it a go.
