The use of centre fire pistol calibre firearms or centrefire rifles are restricted to the licensee only and cannot be shared. The use of unrestricted rifle such as .22 semi-automatic means they can be shared among your travelling party.

The NASRPC will coordinate all applications for the travelling parties. The fees for the firearms license will be payable on arrival at the competition. The permits last for one calendar year and maybe applied for at any time. Once you wish to submit the paperwork let us know.
