About Us

If you shoot rifle, handgun or both, SSAA Practical Shooting SA is the Club for you.

Our friendly Club at the Monarto Shooting Complex has 4 ranges stretching out to 500m, laden with a variety of targets for all day practice, plinking and sight in.

On the first weekend of every month we have fun filled Precision Rifle Competitions. All shooters are warmly welcome to bring any rimfire or centrefire up to 8mm and come and try this exhilarating sport. We also open on several mid month days and on request if available. See our Calendar.

Additionally we are setup for several handgun disciplines including Modern Metallic Silhouette.

We conduct regular approved courses for those wanting a Firearms Licence (A1, B1, H1).

If you like to compete, plink, target shoot, or just need to sight in your firearm, then come for a visit – your first is free.

It’s thrilling making steel targets ring at ranges you never imagined – so give it a go.

What is Practical Shooting?

Practical Shooting is fast, fun and exhilarating which is why it’s one of the fastest growing shooting sports in the world. Practical Shooting is where the competitors are trying to unite the three principles of precision, positions and speed to score as many points as possible during the given amount of time.

The courses are called “stages”, and are shot individually by the shooters who must move and shoot from several positions, fire under or over obstacles and in other unfamiliar situations. There are no standard exercises or set arrangement of the steel targets, and the courses are designed so that the shooter must be inventive, and therefore the solutions of challenges frequently varies between shooters.

We operate under the SSAA Practical Shooting Rule Book, with various modifications to suit the local range. We have a calibre limit of 8 mm (.323) and a muzzle velocity limit on our steel targets of 3200 fps.

Come along and check out one of the fastest growing styles of shooting in the world!
