The Aquila Indoor Range is a shooting facility designed to an internationally accepted design for this type of shooting environment to ensure the well-being and personal safety of those who make use of it. It is professionally constructed and built according to the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) standards and has been accredited with the South African Police Service (SAPS) in terms of the Firearms Control Act 2000 (Act 60 of 2000) and the Firearms Control Regulations 2004. It further complies with the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1993 (Act 85 of 1993) to ensure proper sound dampening qualities, correct air flow from the rear shooting positions to the bullet trap and excellent ventilation to reduce any lead borne contamination for shooters.
The facility can accommodate a maximum of three (3) static shooters at any one time. Should the facility be needed to train a dynamic situational environment, where the shooter is shooting while on the move, the distance may vary from zero to approximately 10 metres from the target area with the shooting being unidirectional towards the bullet trap. Low light scenarios can be reproduced together with multiple target engagement for single or team training.
Strict range safety procedures and rules are posted both at the entrance to and on the inside rear wall of the shooting facility. It is compulsory for any user of the Range to read, understand, agree to and comply with these laid down conditions before gaining access to the facility.
