Apply for a Competition Waiver

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. Click here to see the NRA's Adaptive Shooting Positions.

The medical waiver application is fairly simple and consists of two forms. The first form is a Competitor Application that should be filled out by the shooter. The second form is a Medical Form that 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.
