At Natshoot (an association of South African firearm owners), shooting is not just a hobby – it’s a way of life. The large community of marksmen and women across South Africa showcase the best of this rewarding pastime. Just as crucial as the technical skills, our sport also builds camaraderie. At Natshoot, our members form lasting friendships while improving their techniques together. We come from all walks of life, united by a shared passion.

The diversity of shooting disciplines available in South Africa is remarkable. From the smoke-filled air of shotgun ranges, the calm focus of long-range rifle shooting, to practical shooting events that build critical defensive skills. There are also various competitions and leagues that challenge shooters to improve their accuracy and push themselves to the next level. This includes events held by local ranges and clubs, as well as events hosted by the likes of Natshoot, ELRSA, NRA, SADPA etc.

Shooters are to undergo extensive training in safe handling, storage, and range protocols before participating; together, we stand for responsible and mature sport shooting. You can attend a safety or introductory course at your local range, then try your hand at trap shooting, plinking, or competitive pistol shooting. Who knows – you may discover hidden talents.

We invite all curious newcomers to join our ranks. Visit the Natshoot website today to learn more and find a range near you. Discover why our members are so passionate about this classic pastime. We look forward to welcoming you!

Happy Shooting,
