With Multi-discipline Sport Shooting (MDS) members participate in an active shooting activity with an emphasis on everyday equipment. Currently it is shot only with handguns but to be expanded in future to include semi-automatic shotguns and rifles (modern self-loading rifles).
Die MDS Handleiding:. Dit sluit onder andere die bestaande MDS Reëls, MDS opleidingstruktuur en -prosesse, standaardbane en ‘n uiteensetting van streek en nasionale kleure in. Die multigeweer spoedskietdissiplines vir handwapen, haelgeweer en moderne sportskietgeweer (semi-outomatiese gewere) op takvlak val nou ook onder die vaandel van MDS. Slegs takke wat MDS-baanoffisiere het, kan die spoedskietdissiplines aanbied.
Die handleiding sluit belangrike inligting in oor die opleiding van MDS-baanoffisiere. vir die MDS-organogram van goedgekeurde MDS-baanoffisieropleiers en rig navrae soos van toepassing. Indien ‘n MDS-baanoffisieropleier se naam nie op hierdie lys verskyn nie, skakel dringend met André van der Merwe om dit uit te klaar. Persone wat as MDS-baanoffisiere opgelei is en die opleier se naam verskyn nie op die lys nie, tree in verbinding met die betrokke MDS-baanoffisieropleier om die saak uit te klaar.
Belangstellendes kan navrae oor MDS aktiwiteite by hulle tak aan takvoorsitters rig.
All training, especially shooting training at SA Hunters branches, is mentor-based and takes place at the shooting range. SA Hunters branches manage more than 100 shooting ranges across South Africa, giving members access to a shooting range at every branch where formal and informal shooting activities are offered. With more than 700 official branch shooting days per annum, there are plenty opportunities available for basic shooting training at the branches on request.
Competent sport shooters at branch, regional, and national level are available on request to advise and train new sport shooters.
The MDS discipline is only offered at branches where the following are in place:
MDS exercises are not standardised and differ from range to range and from competition to competition.
At branch shooting events the aim is for everyone to have fun on condition that the safety rules are adhered to.The hunting exercises can be shot without the rule restrictions, e.g., using shooting sticks where normally not allowed, coaching a person, shooting with a smaller calibre than required for the exercise, and shooting the exercise more than once.
The shooting competitions create the opportunity for members to compete at regional and national level in realistic scenarios. Regional rankings are created for each one of these competitions on the SA Hunters member administration system. Members that qualify for the national competitions participate annually to determine the top shottists in each discipline.
MDS is hosted at regional and national shooting competitions.
Regional and national colours are awarded for MDS dependent on the qualifying standards.
