“Something for Every Shooting Enthusiast “

I’d like to try target shooting, what do I do?

The SSAA’s shooting competitions, commonly referred to as ‘disciplines’, are the backbone of the Association and include the use of many types of firearms such as shotguns, pistols and revolvers and rimfire, centrefire, air and black powder rifles, depending on the discipline and competition concerned. Whether you are a pistol shooter or a cannon enthusiast, S.S.A.A. has something of interest to you. There really is something for every shooter.
