NRA Disabled Services Department – Manages all aspects of formalized competition for competitors with disabilities, including shooting as a rehabilitative experience, modifying shooting programs for local consumption, formulating NRA policies concerning the disabled community, conducting local events and clinics, and interfacing with organizations which represent the physically disabled.

 

The Department also administers competitive protests and Permanent and Temporary Special Authorizations (petitions) for physically disabled shooters, and interfacing with organizations which represent the physically disabled.

 

 

 

MEDICAL WAIVERS
In accordance with Rule 13, competitors with physical disabilities, who are unable to achieve the required shooting positions or use special adaptive equipment, are required to apply for a medical waiver. To see the NRA's Adaptive Shooting Positions click here.

The medical waiver application is fairly simple and consists of two forms. The first form is a Competitor Application and should be filled out by the shooter. The second form is a Medical Form and must be completed by the physician. Each applicant must submit the completed forms along with pictures and other relevant information.
 

Once received, the applications are reviewed by the NRA Protest Committee. After approving the application, the competitor will receive a card authorizing them to use the adapted position or equipment and must present that card to the Match Director prior to the start of the competition.
