The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Rifle Association (RNRMRA) is the umbrella organisation for all competitive shooting within the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and their Reserves.  The Association comprises the Royal Naval Reserve Rifle Association who use the Service Rifle (5.56mm SA80 L1A2) and the four Regular Forces Rifle Associations - Naval Air Command (NACRA); Portsmouth Area (PARA); Plymouth and Scotland Area (PASARA) and the Royal Marines (RMRA), who use both the Service Rifle (5.56mm SA80 L1A2) and the Service Pistol (Browning 9mm) for competitive combat shooting. 

The premier event of the Service Shooting calendar for the Regular Forces is the Central Skill At Arms meeting, which takes place from mid June to early July and is held at Bisley in Surrey.  The Champion Shot from the Royal Navy and Royal Marines is awarded the Queens Medal.  The Royal Naval Reserve hold their own Skill At Arms meeting annually at the end of June.

Affiliated to the RNRMRA are the Non Service Weapon Associations which comprise the Royal Navy Clay Pigeon Shooting Association (RNCPSA); Royal Navy and Royal Marines Smallbore Rifle Association (RNRMSRA); Royal Navy and Royal Marines Target Pistol Association (RNRMTPA); Royal Marines Target Rifle Club (RMTRC) and the Royal Navy Target Rifle Club (RNTRC).

Each of the affiliated Associations compete in a programme of Inter-Service fixtures and with the exception of the Target Pistol discipline, are open to both serving and retired members of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and their Reserves.
