Short history of the rifle club

The Swiss Rifle Club Cape Town was founded in 1949 when some 27 Swiss took part in a Fernschiessen they heard of on the Swiss Shortwave Radio, this was offered by the Swiss National Shooting Federation and they were supported by a South African Police Sergeant Major and to start were given some SA Army issued .303 Rifles. Soon thereafter application was made to the relevant Military Department in Switzerland which was approved and middle of 1950 the first rifles together with ammunition arrived in Cape Town and the first shoot with their new Karabiner Rifles was held on 23. Dec. 1950. Ever since then the club carried on with the sport of shooting and has until now a perfect safety record and is proud of its accident free performance.
RIfleclub 20140906_1286 Our club is an affiliated member to the Swiss National Sport Shooting Federation and is as such also sponsored by it. Our second and most important sponsor is the Swiss Military which supplies us with rifles, ammunition and all things needed for the sport.
The Club has at present some 45 members and shoots at the SA Navy range (Klawer) in Simonstown. Our program consists of some 23 shooting dates per year which includes all the major Swiss Programs, i.e. Feldschiessen, Obligatorisch, Sektions Meisterschaft, Einzelwettschiessen and our own locally sponsored programs.
The club aims to actively promote the sport of shooting in all its facets with the available material and in doing so keep an age old and much loved Swiss Tradition alive.
