The low-down on firearm licences

Please take note of the requirements for various types of firearm licences.
• Section 13 – This is a firearm licence for SELF DEFENSE and valid for 5 years: you may have a maximum of 200 rounds for this section. However, you may only buy more ammunition once you’ve expanded some of your initial round count. While this might be your self-defense gun, you may practice and develop your skill on an accredited shooting range. You may only have one section 13 firearm licensed in your name.
• Section 15 – This firearm licence for OCCASIONAL SPORTSHOOTING/HUNTING is valid for 10 years, and you may have a maximum of 200 rounds for this section. As this firearm is your sport firearm, it may not be carried with you for any other reason. Additionally, you may have three firearms of this section in your name if you already have a self-defense firearm in your name.
• Section 16 – The firearm licence for DEDICATED SPORTSHOOTING/HUNTING is valid for 10 years and you’re allowed more then 200 rounds for this section. Reason being: you’re dedicated to your sport and shoot much more than the occasional shooter. Additional to section 13 & 15, you may own other firearms in your name when licensed under section 16.

Are you a tactical top shot?

Are you a tactical top shot?

You’re invited to the Marksman’s Nest Tactical Top Shot event on 16 and/or 17 October 2020 from 9h00. As we only allow 8 shooters per hour, do book your slot in advance by sending a WhatsApp message to Geoffrey on 082 7172197.

The event promises to be exhilarating with a combination of shooting skills, accuracy, speed, movement and target acquisition. Not all tactical shooters are created equal. Tactical shooting definitely requires a high level of aiming skill, taking the genre up a notch. Said chief range officer Geoffrey Coetzee, “Tactical shooters are about caution, care, cooperation, coordination, planning and pacing. However, this event also promises to be a whole bunch of fun. Our promise is that we’ve made a concerted effort to make exercises real, relevant, interesting and captivating for all participants. Weapons will include handgun, bolt-action and semi-automatic rifles.”
