    Does anybody shoot airgun silhouette in this country? I've only seen comments about HF, HFT and 10m.
    Do you only get hand gun silhouette, or is there a rifle disipline as well?

    I know that fire arm silhouette was/is big in SA. But are there any clubs in the Jhb area that have an airgun section? There used to be a large silhouette range out Suikerbosrand way, but that closed down a few years ago when the farm it was on was sold.

    The website is not up to date, and the South African website does not exist anymore. Tried to send email, but get : /Binfo@samssa.co.za on 25.03.2008 03:13 PM

    So looks like the local crowd have dissapeared.
    Pity, always found silhouette to be great fun, although I haven't shot for a couple of years.

    I'd sell my HW40 any day to get one of them Steyr pistols if I had that kind of cash around to buy one. Such elegant / precise looking equipment.

    Steyr silo pistol is based on their biathlon rifle ...it is not a semi-auto like the LP50

    It has a straight pull back Fortner type bolt action and a 5 shot magazine.

    Regarding silhouette shooting I have in vain tried for 2 months now to find out how to get involved, find out more info etc. Seems the sport has died in the RSA, or they do not want anymore members?

    I think it has to be below 6ft\lbs to conform to German and other EU regulations.
    I believe it does just under 600fps with wadcutters but should be fairly easy to turn up to 800fps
