The Practical for Dedicated Status Courses can only be shot on one of the Exercises below:

Black Powder Handguns or Rifles, or Semi-Auto Rifle/Carbine or Lever Action Rifle Targets are not accepted for practical for the dedicated status courses with NHSA

 

Candidates may shoot the required Targets downloaded below at a publically recognised shooting range.  For ease members might want to use one of the ranges mentioned on the List of NHSA Friendly Ranges (click here), but it is not compulsory that you must shoot on one of the ranges on that list.  You must, however shoot on a shooting range.

In the event that you cannot shoot on a publically recognised shooting range, or that it might be too far from you, you may request permission to shoot at a private range - send Email to member@natshoot.co.za

  1. State name of private range (farm range) where you can shoot, and why it is absolutely necessary for you to shoot there
  2. Indicate length of range
  3. Indicate who will be the witness when you shoot at that range (give ID number and Cell Phone number)

Candidates must choose which exercise suits them best and then read the prescripts for the exercise and download the relevant target to shoot the practical on.

Candidates must shoot a mark of 60% for the practical to pass.

Candidates may present a handgun or rifle Target for the dedicated sport-person course, or a relevant shotgun score sheet

For the dedicated hunter course candidates may only present a rifle Target or a shotgun score sheet.
