At Natshoot we have created an umbrella under which like-minded law abiding firearm owners, hunters, and sport shooters can converge to ascertain their right to possess firearms and to be responsible and accountable in the legal use of firearms. Be that in sport shooting, hunting or for self-protection.
All Natshoot policy positions are transparently conveyed in our constant Newsletters, which are based on fact and not on the emotive over-reactive personal views so frequently expressed on social media platforms.
NHSA is definitely one of the better deals for occasional and/or dedicated hunters, or occasional and/or dedicated sport shooters to consider; and even for single firearm owners in South Africa.
