Occasional or Dedicated Hunter?


Becoming a member of a hunting association in South Africa 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 (firearm) license to possess a firearm for occasional hunting and sport shooting. When applying for a firearm license, your approval process will run much smoother when you are already a member of a hunting association like FOSA.


Obtain and maintain your Dedicated Hunter Status by regularly participating in dedicated sport shooting Associations like FOSA. This status is 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.
