National Rifle Association
The NRA was founded in 1859, originally to provide a focus for marksmanship for the then newly formed corps of volunteers raised to meet the perceived threat of invasion by France. The NRA was granted Royal Charter in 1894 – still in force – for the ‘promotion of marksmanship in the interests of the Defence of the Realm and permanence of the Volunteer Forces, Navy, Military and Air’. It is the national governing body for fullbore rifle and centre-fire pistol shooting in Great Britain.
British Association for Shooting and Conservation
The mission of Britain’s largest shooting organisation, representing over 129,000 members, is to promote and protect shooting and the well-being of the countryside. The organisation represents shooters’ interests by providing a voice for sporting shooting and includes target shooting as well as airgunning within its remit. BASC runs www.goshooting.org.uk, detailing UK shooting opportunities.
