It is important to differentiate between individuals that cannot shoot from the standard or even a higher position, in other words an “impaired person”, and an individual that can shoot from a higher or amended position by making small changes to the standard position.
Physically impaired individuals will be accommodated according to their individual needs and circumstances, without giving the individual an unfair advantage or disadvantage and, most importantly, without compromising safety.
The shooting positions and classification codes that SAHGCA use, were adopted from the rules and classification codes of the International Paralympics Committee, the National Rifle Association and the International Sport Shooting Federation.
Amendments to the official SAHGCA shooting exercises will make it possible for the physically impaired members to participate actively, and compete in the SAHGCA hunting and sport shooting events fairly and equally. These rules will give the disabled and impaired individual the knowledge and confidence to hunt again, and it will also open the door for the development and testing of various shooting aids.
