BMSSC is a range where the registered gun owner can come an practice with his/her firearm.  It is possible for you to shoot with most of your firearms on this range, but not shotguns.


The Bloemfontein Metallic Silhouette Shooting Club is situated in the grounds of the Bloemfontein Shooting Center on the Reddersburg (N6) road.  The Club boasts the best silhouette shooting range in this country and possibly the world. The club not only makes provision for serious Metallic Silhouette shooters, but also accommodates the casual shooter who wants to “try out” his/her firearm or for the hunter that needs to obtain settings for the rifle.  Die baan is gewoonlik op ''n Saterdag oop vanaf 13h30 - 17h00 vir beide.


Die klub se sake word ge-administreer deur ''n komitee wat bestaan uit die dagbestuur (Voorsitter, Onder Voorsitter, Tesourier en Sekretaris) en addisionele lede.  Die dagbestuur word verkies by die Algemene Jaar Vergadering wat plaasvind Oktober/November elke jaar. 


Die dagbestuur verkies daarna die addisionele lede na gelang van die klub se behoeftes.  Soos die naam van die klub baie duidelik uitspel, het die baan sy ontstaan te danke aan Metaal Silhoeet Skiet Sport fanatici. Dit beteken egter nie dat die wapen eienaar nie welkom is nie - selfs al stel jy nie belang in die sport nie, is die baan uiters geskik vir die inskiet of be-oefening van omtrent enige vuurwapen (haelgewere uitgesluit). Die klub voorsien nie net aan die behoefte van die internasionale skut nie, maar maak ook voorsiening vir die sosiale skut wat net sy geweer vir die volgende jag geleentheid wil instel of vir die wapen eienaar wat wil seker maak dat hy/sy in beheer is van sy/of haar selfverdedigingswapen. 




2022  Executive Committee
Chairperson: Pannetjie Rossouw Vice Chairperson: Paul Grobler  Treasurer: Hannes Booysen Secretary: Annette Rossouw 

CHICKEN (Gallina Flopicus): A very small, one-footed bird that tends to sit quietly if undisturbed. But, if hit, performs the wildest acrobatics. A deceptively simple target, it tries to depend on its small size for protection.

PIG (Porkus Metallicus): Generally found standing in line astern, this amiable, docile and seldom aggressive creature will easily succumb to a well-placed shot. However, hunters must beware of a feeling of false confidence and the insecurity of: “How did I miss such a nice fat target?”.

TURKEY (Hardtohitus Maximus): This bird is so stupid that it obstinately refuses to lie down amidst the hail of lead flying by it. Hunters may find this stubborn tendency extremely frustrating, so much so that their aim grows worse and worse.

RAM (Longwayus Outus): These animals seem to possess a sixth sense and know when they are being viewed through a rifle scope. At such times they are capable of crazy leaps of evasion and can dodge speeding bullets with a single bound.


All these animals are carriers of the dread disease SILHOUETTE FEVER.
Victims of the illness tend to develop such symptoms as one eye that squints while the other stares wildly, bad backs from hips thrown out of joint, claw-like left hands and itching trigger fingers. Chronic suffers have had horrible nightmares filled with small, wavering, black animals and in their sleep scream strange words like “Listo” and “Fuego” and “Dammit”.
The only cure seems to be the total extermination of the above animals to which all socially-conscious rifle-persons should apply themselves, pledging their lives (spent at the range), their fortunes (squandered on the “perfect” rifle and the latest “guaranteed accurate” ammunition), and their sacred honor (which is why nobody scores their own card).

Go Get ‘Em! (If you can!)
