About Us

ON TARGET AFRICA prides itself on the in-depth firearm reviews that aim to make the reader fully informed by the time the new firearm owner walks into their gun store to make further enquiries, or better still their purchase. We endeavour to bring new products to the consumer to keep them fully informed as to what is new to market thereby retaining an impartiality.


ON TARGET AFRICA is the perfect publication to cover the over 14 sports-shooting disciplines in South Africa, a diverse and growing market, from gear and equipment to coverage of the major long-range, Extreme Long Range events, and related markets such as outdoors, 4X4ing and game farms, hunting and wildlife management and conservation.

AND MORE sports-shooting disciplines in South Africa covered

ON TARGET AFRICA provides expert and professional reviews of the latest firearms and accessories.

Also catering for the equally-important collectors’ market, which plays a vital role in preserving our country’s firearm heritage.

Another focus for ON TARGET AFRICA is the tactical market, which is of growing importance due to the large number of security companies operating in South Africa at present.

This means that a key focus of ON TARGET AFRICA is the family experience. Sports-shooting is, indeed, a family sport, and we cater for every single member, from professional to amateur, and even children, who need to acquire firearm safety and basic knowledge as soon as possible.

Sports-shooters, of course, are great outdoors enthusiasts, which is why we will be focusing on the 4×4 community as well, getting stuck into the dust-and-dirt of the many hiking trails available across the country, and showcasing our extremely diverse fauna and flora.

ON TARGET AFRICA is a high-quality specialist magazine, with copies distributed nationally ten months of a year through CNA, Exclusive Books, specialist book stores, shooting sports ranges, and gun stores.

ON TARGET AFRICA keeps its consumers up-to-date and well-informed. It encourages smart buying decisions by delivering comprehensive and expert product and gun reviews, in addition to topical articles on the latest trends and developments in legislation, regulations and licencing.


ON TARGET AFRICA advocates correct eye and ear protection be worn at all times on all shooting ranges and at all shooting events. This is for visitors as well.
