Note about ATTs (Authorization to Transport restricted firearms). NCRRA activities are held on federal military property. A special ATT is needed to transport restricted firearms to and from military property. These ATTs are obtained through the NCRRA ATT Coordinator. Until one of these ATTs has been issued to you, you MAY NOT bring your handguns and other restricted firearms to CRPTC, even if you already have a standard ATT for transport to an from civilian ranges. Application may be made through the activity captains of target pistol, service pistol, or service rifle. See the relevant Activity page of this website for email addresses.
