Dedicated Hunter and Sport Shooter Status

About Dedicated Status

A person with dedicated hunter or sport shooter status may own more than four firearms, more than two handguns, a self-loading or semi-automatic rifle, and more than 200 rounds of ammunition per licence.

The firearm owner must obtain dedicated hunter or dedicated sport shooter status before applying for a Section 16 firearm licence.

Although the Act is more lenient towards persons with dedicated status, it simultaneously places more responsibility on a person with dedicated status.

A dedicated hunter must participate in and report on at least two prescribed hunting activities during the year. A dedicated sport shooter must participate in and report on at least three prescribed events on the shooting range or sport shooting activities during the year.

Every dedicated hunter and sport shooter must maintain his/her status by reporting on his/her activities by 31 October every year.

Toegewyde Jagter- en Sportskutstatus

Vergroot hier

Oor Toegewyde Status

ʼn Persoon met toegewyde jagter- of sportskutstatus mag meer as vier vuurwapens, meer as twee handwapens, ʼn selflaai of semi-outomatiese geweer en meer as 200 rondtes ammunisie per lisensie besit.

Die vuurwapeneienaar moet toegewyde jagter of sportskutstatus verkry voordat hy kan aansoek doen vir ‘n Artikel 16 vuurwapenlisensie.

Hoewel die Wet dus meer vryheid bied aan ʼn persoon met toegewyde status, plaas die Wet terselfdertyd ʼn groter verantwoordelikheid op ʼn persoon met toegewyde status.

 ʼn Toegewyde jagter moet aan ten minste twee voorgeskrewe jagaktiwiteite gedurende die jaar deelneem en daaroor verslag doen. ʼn Toegewyde sportskut moet aan ten minste drie voorgeskrewe skietbaan- of sportskietaktiwiteite gedurende die jaar deelneem en daaroor verslag doen.

Elke toegewyde jagter en sportskut moet sy/haar status handhaaf deur jaarliks teen 31 Oktober oor sy/haar aktiwiteite verslag te doen.
