  1. How do I qualify for an IPRF event?

To do this you must take part in at least 2 sanctioned events at an approved range. Your scores will be collated and taken into consideration against other shooters. If you score high enough in your chosen division or category you will be selected to shoot as part of the GBPRA team at IPRF events. It is anticipated that the top 4 shooters in each category will shoot for the GBPRA. If one or more of these shooters declines the invitation, the offer will pass to the next highly placed shooter in that respective category.

2. What conditions do I need on my FAC to take part in qualification shoots?

We anticipate that all suitable and sanctioned ranges/venues will have appropriate insurance and will either be a home-office approved club or a commercial range with an appropriate range area and danger template, as such the ‘target condition’ on your licence should be sufficient. If you have concerns or questions regarding this, please email

3. If I qualify for an IPRF event will I have to pay for my own travel?

Yes, selected shooters will be expected to pay for their own travel but the GBPRA will look to provide support for qualifying shooters where it can. We are ‘not for profit’ and plan to put every penny of membership fees back into the Association for the benefit of the members. 

4. If I do not have an FAC can I still join?

Of course. We encourage membership from people who are new to the sport and have a number of training and development programs that will offer maximum exposure to the sport before you even pull the trigger.

5. Can I vote on elections to the committee and can I put myself forwards for election?

Absolutely! We are all very proud of what we have achieved but equally we accept that our members should decide the direction that the GBPRA takes. To this end we must have a free and fair election as soon as possible as outlined in the constitution.

6. Can I shoot with a factory rifle and qualify?

Yes you can, there are divisions and categories you can qualify for. This link to the IPRF shows the options –
