Services Department - NRA Disabled Shooting Services
Program offers services that enable thousands of Americans with
physical disabilities to enjoy a variety of shooting activities,
including competitive events and hunting.
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.
