Firearms Developed and Manufactured in Southern Africa

by Chas Lotter

Over two hundred local firearms are covered in this new reference guide. If your firearm is not in this book then it is either a completely unknown extremely scarce Southern African design or it was not designed and manufactured during the period after the Second World War in either South Africa or Rhodesia (as the country was called until 1980). The full story of these firearms and of the people who designed them has never before been told.

Vandag hoop jy om ‘n elandbul aan te skaf – nie iets wat jy sommer vir ’n appel en ei gaan optel nie – maar jy weet jou peperduur vooruitsig is kwesbaar vir siektes, klimaat en stresvolle vervoer. Hoe waarborg jy dat jou eland lewendig voet op jou plaas sit en lewendig gaan bly?

Tips to know when preparing venison by Kaptein Khaki

Through my dealings with hunters specifically biltong hunters and ranch owners I realise that game meat as a whole does not carry the same enthusiasm as table fair as good beef and lamb or mutton. The hunter normally makes biltong and perhaps keeps the back straps for grilling.
