Heritage cleaning sessions

posted 6 Oct 2020, 09:23 by Tony Cattermole   [ updated 6 Oct 2020, 09:23 ]
Members attention is drawn to the following message and document from the NRA regarding availability of sessions to access, check, and clean their Heritage Pistols stored in the Cheylesmore Armoury. Regrettably, as you see, there will be no shooting able to take place for the foreseeable future. This remains under review and any change will be advised.

Dear NRA Heritage shooter,

Over the past 6 months the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted shooting activities on Bisley camp and due to this the NSC have not been able to offer the Heritage shoots that were previously published. Unfortunately, for the foreseeable we will be unable to offer a heritage shoot due to the resources required and restrictive nature of the layout of Cheylesmore range club room. The Organisation is continuously looking at ways to organise a heritage shoot but with the current guidelines that are in place from the UK government it is unlikely that we will be able to offer you a Heritage shoot until 2021.

We understand how frustrating this may be, and can appreciate that you may have concerns for your firearms stored within the Cheylesmore armoury. Due to these concerns we would like to offer a session, where you can clean and inspect your firearms in a “Covid safe” environment. Please note: No live firing will be permitted during the session.

Sessions will be limited to 6 members at a time and 4 sessions will be offered a day on the below published dates.

26/10/20      02/11/20
27/10/20      03/11/20
28/10/20      04/11/20
29/10/20      05/11/20
30/10/20      06/11/20

The sessions will be as follows
08:30-10:00
10:30-12:30
13:30-14:30
14:45-16:00

Before requesting a time and date please read through and familiarise yourself with the procedure we have created for this event which is attached to this email.

Should you wish to attend please email armoury@nra.org.uk with a preferred date and session and we will endeavour to allocate you with a suitable slot.

Should you have any questions please contact the NSC armourers via email armoury@nra.org.uk or call us on 01483797777 ext. 134

Kind regards
NRA Armoury
