National Rifle and Pistol Association (NRAPA) is accredited by the S.A. Police Services with the designated powers to allocate Dedicated Sports status to its members.

National Rifle and Pistol Association’s (NRAPA) purpose is to provide a one-stop service with regards to the administration of the Firearms Control Act. We would like to make it simpler for the general public to comply with the requirements of the Act.

National Rifle and Pistol Association (NRPA) promotes active participation in postal shooting. What is Postal shooting? A Postal Match is a match in which competitors fire on their home ranges at their own leisure using targets which have been marked for identification. Postal matches afford a means of real competition, formal shooting by the rules, and a method to track your shooting progress. They are all integrity based - meaning they are examples of the essence of good sportsmanship, honesty, and integrity. Modern Postal matches involve various guns in multiple courses of fire. Some matches simply concentrate on marksmanship skills with little or no movement required throughout the course.

National Rifle and Pistol Association (NRPA) will manage the administrative part and keep record on behalf of its member. By electronically submitting shot targets and score cards to the office for ratification of scores, members build up records of participation for submission at application for, or at renewal of, firearm licences. In short you shoot at your own time at your choice of range and we will keep record of you activities.

NRAPA is exciting and growing association. The NRAPA team prides themselves in offering convenience and a ‘one-stop’ service for our members. Our offices are based in Lyttelton, Centurion at the premises of Centurion Indoor Shooting and Lyttelton Firearm Training Centre. Here members have the benefit of being assisted with proficiency training at an accredited firearm training centre, safe storage of firearms, a Gunshop where you can purchase your desired firearms, accessories, ammunition and much more. In addition, Ranyati Firearm Motivations is based at the same office where you can be assisted with the preparation of your firearm licence applications, motivations and renewal applications. You also have the benefit of an indoor shooting range at the facility where you can use your purchased firearm whilst waiting for your firearm licence to be approved. Should you have purchased your firearm elsewhere Centurion Indoor Shooting can assist you with having your firearm transferred into their safe storage.
