D-WHAT WE DO FOR MEMBERS
As SAPS Accredited Hunting Association, NHSA is a member of the SA Hunters′ Forum and the Hunters-SAPS Consultative Forum. Both bodies consist of all accredited hunting associations and they deal directly with the SAPS (CFR) at a three-monthly meeting.
NHSA is also a member of the Sport Shooting Forum of South Africa, which consists of all the accredited Sport Shooting Associations in this country. The SSF deals directly with SAPS(CFR) on matters pertaining to firearm licensing.
Through NHSA you thus have direct access to the lawmaker and implementer. As a unit, the Hunters Forum and the Sport Shooting Forum have influence and access to first-hand knowledge of what is happening in terms of the implementation of the Firearms Control Act.
NHSA personnel have acted as chairperson for the Hunters′ Forum and have been nominated by the Minister of Police to serve on the Task Team which investigated the implementation of the Firearms Control Act and the functioning of the Central Firearms Registry.
NHSA personnel have actively participated in the 2015/2016 processes of negotiating a Service Delivery Charter with The Central Firearms Registry and have thus taken a leading role in affecting better service delivery from the CFR in line with the stipulations of the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act of 2000.
NHSA supports conservation-based rural development and conservation through sustainable use of renewable natural resources through hunting. In this context, we are an active supporter of the True Green Alliance - an NGO seriously in the fight against the Animal Rightists and the one-eyed, so-called greeny movements.
We create an umbrella under which like-minded law-abiding hunters, sport shooters, and firearm owners can converge to ascertain their right to possess firearms and to be responsible and accountable in their use. Be that in sport shooting, hunting or for self-protection.
NHSA is definitely one of the better deals for occasional and/or dedicated hunters, or occasional and/or dedicated sport shooters, and even for single firearm owners in South Africa.
