Worth a read, some interesting parts; particularly for those who don't shoot at Bisley due to distance...

All positive changes..

No mention of the IPSC Bid in their strategy but getting them to admit it failed is proving difficult. I wonder if its omission in the strategy an admission that its not going to be pursued?

Some good stuff in there though.

Interesting read - All good stuff, particularly the range improvements; electronic targets and more covered points on some ranges...and more support for the regions too... :good:

New range behind Melville would work well with Butt Zero but might limit use of 900yds especially if 1000yds & 11/1200 is used. Have always thought the space behind the 100yds FP On Siberia shielded by a backstop wall could support 100yds prone 22, allow more of the 100yds FP to be used on Siberia & all the 200 FPs too. Another area is in front of the the 300m sheds could support prone rifle 100-200yds.

To make the camp more appealing - do something about the NSRA owned cookhouse (20years overdue for demolition) & the NSRA's 'Berlin concrete wall' the JFK lines sheds! & the century loos! (explosives & EOD practice would help).

I have mentioned the disgraceful state of Hut13 to the NRA on several occasions. The problem seems to be that the building was sold to the NSRA who were going to turn it into an accomodation block. Repeated queries to the NSRA have always resulted in "we are about to start"----this has been going on for more than ten years. Presumably, the NSRA is paying the leasing costs on the building and I would have thought that bringing this to the attentions of their members might see some action.

Use of the 300m range is already severely restricted due to falling shot problems (crazy in itself). If you cut into that time any more you might as well rip out the best electronic target facility around.

Nope - the land belongs to the NSRA so it is totally up to them what they do with it or to be more accurate it belonged to an NSRA director (now deceased) and the NSRA. The building contains asbestos so would be expensive to remove. Allegedly when I worked at the NSRA a hotel chain was going to put a hotel there which would have been open last Easter kukkuk . If so its very well hidden!

The last extension to the planning permission is here

So basically all complaints to the NSRA . . . ;)

Karen: My comment was based on the belief that the NRA had never sold land at Bisley and the NSRA properties were on long term lease---I know that this amounts to the same thing but I would like it cleared up just out of curiosoty.

That particular piece of land was sold (late 90s I think).

And before anyone thinks I am letting any huge secrets out of the bag (I'm not as its been common knowledge for years), you can get the details from the minutes of the NSRA AGMs published in the Rifleman.

Love

Karen
