Executive Officer, Brett Thurtell is also a very keen Rifle Shooter and well known around Australia.

The new FTR Rules recently posted in the SSR’s have caused a few queries.
They are a direct copy from the ICFRA Rules and unfortunately not very explicit.
After discussions with ICFRA F Class Rules Committee, the NRAA has updated the SSR's to 4.0 (c) which makes some rulings and goes into more depth.
The latest NRAA SSR’s effective as at 1st July 2015 are now in force.
Version is 4.0 (c)
