The activities of the NSRA are governed by a number of sets of rules, each to meet specific purposes.
NSRA Rules and Regulations contain the basic rules for the conduct of shooting events. The most recent substantial review was in 1998 and the approved rules were published in 1999. Amendments, additions and clarifications are implemented from time to time, subject to the approval of the Shooting Council. However such changes only take effect on 1st April next following the date of approval.
