    Default Western Cape firearms festival

    Quick question on the festival this weekend. Does the entry fee cover the shooting of firearms as well? If not what will the cost be? I am specifically asking regarding the .50 cal . If I read the ad correctly it says .22 - .50 cal.

    Thanks.

    So what are the costs to shoot for example an AR-15? Shotgun?

    I am planning to attend and I have invited a friend who is keen to shoot as many firearms as possible.

    Will it be possible for the GOSA team or someone in the know to post prices on the different shooting taking place.

    Some mates want to join me but they all want pricing for shooting.
