Occasional or Dedicated?


Becoming a member of an association like FOSA has numerous advantages. One of them is that you are immediately recognised as an Occasional Hunter and/or Sport Shooter. Occasional Hunter and/or Sport Shooter means that a person does, from time to time, participate in hunting and/or shooting activities. Section 15 of FCA [Firearms Control Act, 2000 (Act No 60 of 2000)] provides the licence to possess a firearm for occasional hunting and sport shooting. When applying for a firearm licence, your approval process will run much smoother when you are already a member of an association like FOSA.


Obtain and maintain your Dedicated Status by regularly participating in hunting and/or shooting activities. This status is a higher than that of an Occasional Hunter/Sport Shooter and has certain privileges.

Members with good standing can own more than four firearms under Section 16 of FCA, own a semi-automatic firearm, possess more than 2 400 primers per licensed firearm, and hold more than 200 rounds of ammunition per firearm that is licensed in their name under FCA.
