Muzzle-loaderTempts All Ages Everywhere

[In Afrikaans]

Latest News

What has transpired to suddenly render the antique muzzle-loader so popular among hunters? After all, it is antiquated technology that cannot vie with today’s modern firearms. Yet its popularity seems to know no boundaries, not only on the local front, but also internationally.

The challenge
One wonders whether it is due to the legendary muzzle-loader skills of a Cornwallis Harris or of the “white god”, Tjaart van der Walt, who were able to hit targets over great distances with this primitive technology. Skills with your own gun is invaluable to all and sundry. The muzzle-loader presents a challenge to see whether one can copy the forefathers to down game with black powder and a round bullet.

The appearance
Muzzle-loaders are available in different forms nowadays: in the antique format or in modern hunting rifle format, complete with lock mechanism and all. There are also various mechanisms in the market with which it can be jazzed up. Furthermore it is accurate to almost 150 meters.

Affordable
Muzzle-loaders are affordable – from exorbitant to dirt cheap. Excellent muzzle-loaders can be procured at prices ranging from R8 000 to R14 000.

Licence not required
That is probably the best news for South Africans. When last could a hunter simply see, buy and take a gun home without further ado! One doesn’t require a licence for a muzzle-loader in terms of the new act. One does, however, require a licence for the black powder use to shoot with. (Go to: http://www.pacificbreeze353.com/newsletters/index.cfm?y=article&company=17&article=1709&nl=307&click=web&subsection=51&langu=2&searchterm=swartkruit)

Warning
In the days of yonder fathers taught their sons how to handle a muzzle-loader. Don’t think the modern hunter can simply buy a muzzle-loader and start shooting with it. There is much to learn to prevent the loss of a finger or two or perhaps a jawbone. Therefore, rather undergo the necessary training.

Om met 'n voorlaaier te jag is 'n uitdaging. Maar doen eers jou huiswerk en oefen op die baan alvorens jy probeer om 'n bok te jag met die wapens. Ken jou geweer en sy limiete en geen probleem. Die Swartkruit wat benodig word of die nuwerwetse dryfmiddel Sannadex het jy nie 'n lisensie nodig nie maar wel 'n Swartkruit permit wat jy kan kry by die Plofstof afdeling van die SAP. Sluit gerus aan by een van die Swartkruit klubs in jou omgewing en jy sal sien daar is baie mense wat jou graag sal touwys maak met die gewere. Die jag van 'n bok met een van die gewere is voorwaar 'n ervaring.
Barry....jy kry hulle ja maar jy het hulle al in die laat 1890 ook gekry. Die prisiep is geskool rondom die "Pauly Action" Dit is die "in liners" en ja hulle is wettig.

Die eienaars van die soort gewere moet net seker maak wat die wat behels rondom die vrystelling van lisensie. Die wet lees dat alle wapens van die soort wat voor 1 Jan 1900 vervaardig is en/of 'n replika van die antieke wapens weergee, word vrygestel van lisensie.
Jy kry nou al swartkryt gewere wat toegerus is met 'n slotaksie?
