    Since I do compete in NRA competitions and stuck in a wheel chair the NRA requires my VA Doc to fill their form explaining my permanent injuries that require me to use a wheel chair. Two bad knees that require braces, bad lower back with crushed disks. Arizona Game and Fish Department requires the same.

    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.

    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

    And, unfortunately, yes, there ARE people that would cheat- that's why the rule.

    Update:

    My Arizona Game and Fish Department has been completed with doc's signature. I now have my Hunting and Fishing license for life. Too late this season to put in for tags, come January I can put in for Elk, Big Horn Sheep. In May I can put in for Deer, have not decided if I will hunt for bear. Already decided when I go with my uncle that we are going to rent an ATV when we do go for I sure cannot carry an Elk or any other big game

    NRA has been completed with doc's signature, I just need to have pictures of me shooting in my chair and mail them back to the NRA for their approval.

    I'm glad you got them straightened out!
    You might wish to consider an ATV with a winch for convenience.

    I urge you to kill as many bears as you can.

    Yeah we got a new member, Cain. Just recently, like in the past week or so. He has some disabilities he talked about in his intro post, multiple strokes I think; I would have to look again to see. But he walks with a cane, and wants to compete. I've already sent him a link to this thread, hoping he could glean something from it.

    Went to Rio Salato Sportsman Club Shooting Range for a few pictures of me in my wheel chair from the front and the side. Then more pictures of me shooting and removing empty mag and reloading with a full mag. I will process them this weekend to send to the NRA next week.

    It is sad that this is required but I'm sure there are many who would try to cheat!

    I hate cheaters of any kind but I hold a special dislike for those who try to manipulate the systems we have been set up for those in need.

    I have a sister who has been legally blind since 1965 who along with her husband run a JoAnn's Fabrics and she works very hard and is very successful. She is now suffering with rumitoid arthridus but at 65 years old has no thought of slowing down!

    My brother was born deaf but got a degree in computer aided drafting and did very well untill he discovered the wonders of cocane.

    I was born with most of the left side of my face missing but I was an experiment in the 1940s and while I will never look like a movie star I look presentable and feel I have led a very productive life.

    One of my pet pievs is people parking in handicaped spots - - - while on the sheriff's dept I was very aggressive on those people.
