    South Africa's most popular firearms for self-defence

    Define gas gun. CO2 pellet gun? Forget it. wasting your time. Blank firing gun? Illegal...and useless. Forget it. OC/Pepper Gun? Inferior to a real one, but if you have to get one, get the JPX or the Byrna.

    WATCH: Taxi driver shoots at robbers who caused motorist to bump into his vehicle

    Not sure who to believe. Other sources say that the Taxi driver shot 2 of the robbers who were robbing an Uber. One in the leg, one in the arm. Based on the video, I am going with that story.

    Surge in gun sales in South Africa

    They aren't doing Section 21's anymore. Yes...technically you can apply. But in practise, it will be declined. They aren't even renewing expired Sec 21 permits. Oh, and for the guy who wants to own a PS90 or FN Five-Seven etc...good luck. Then you can join the other morons who bought one and...

    Self defence will not be a valid reason to own a gun in SA under a newly-revived draft law

    The Self Defense thing really is a small part of this, and I think is the red herring. The Govt will capitulate and "give us" the SD licenses back, and pass a bunch of the other laws that will eventually be just as bad. They want to restrict the amount and types of guns imported and exported. So...

    Any POPI Act experts?

    Based in SA means the forum is hosted here and the owner lives in SA. Most members are worldwide though. Scammer is in Asia, and is finding his dealings to be inconvenienced since Googling him pulls up his various scams. He's attempting threats through a local law firm. But his threats may be a...

    Any POPI Act experts?

    Hypothetical question. Let's say you run a large forum based in South Africa that has 99% international members. Would POPI be applicable to any overseas members that may be exposed as scammers or have their pictures hosted and outed? Would an international person be able to use the services of...

    Are you currently sick with COVID-19?

    Right there with ya. I live to eat. And here I was with the thought of eating actually being repulsive to me. I had maybe 2-3 meals in 14 days...and those were tiny. Don't stress....just drink lots of water. I found I had a craving for orange and other citrus juice. Try that. Ice cream is good...

    Are you currently sick with COVID-19?

    Well and truly screwed me up. Mentally...hard to explain. Some of you here know what I mean. Repetitive nonsensical thoughts flowing through your mind so that you are unable to sleep and feel like you are losing your mind. There is a large psychological aspect to this virus. Friend had vivid...

    Durban radio presenter pleads for help on air during armed robbery

    No firearm, no F*ks given. Take control of your own life and stop relying on a non existent police force.

    17 Shot in 2 Mass Shootings in Chicago Hours Apart, Police Say

    Impossible! Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the USA. Can't have happened...must be some mistake. I mean criminals can't possibly own guns where they are banned. Surely not!

    Diamond rush' in KZN sparks call for calm, pending inspection

    30 Second test to tell if they are real. Govt is sh*tscared to tell these people what they have is worthless. Before you know it, they will be asking big business to sponsor real diamonds to swap with the poor people who think they are rich now. Idiotic all round.

    Shaleen Surtie-Richards has died

    One of those people you couldn't have anything against. She was just cool. RIP auntie. You made a hell of a difference to many growing up.

    All the requirements for getting a gun licence in South Africa

    How can there be ANY stats about your firearm being more likely to be used against you than in self defense, when there can be ZERO stats about how many times the presence of a firearm saved the person without a shot being fired? How many times did the display of a firearm put off the criminal...

    All the requirements for getting a gun licence in South Africa

    The made up stats that GFSA quotes without proof. 99.9% of SD with a handgun doesn't involve a shot fired. And they are never recorded or reported. So hard to quote numbers. But I bet there are huge numbers of owners who only had to present a firearm to dissuade criminals or make an arrest. Done...

    [US] Deadly shooting in San Jose, California

    We likely have more car accident deaths in a month per 1000 ppl than they have from mass shootings. And we make zero fuss about that. Statistically, the US is just fine.

    All the requirements for getting a gun licence in South Africa are not really wrong. Technically it's possible, but the people who have been issued with one can be counted on hands. You would need to be in the middle of nowhere with an imminent threat for them to even consider it. For all intents and purposes, you can't get a semi auto rifle for SD.

    Self defence will not be a valid reason to own a gun in SA under a newly-revived draft law

    Did anyone miss the part where minister of police announces that policing is being defunded by 4 Billion rands and VIP Protection is being increased by 2 Billion rands? That tells you everything about how the cANCer views the public.

    Nkosana Makate wants billions from Vodacom for Please Call Me idea

    Greed f.wit. I hope he ends up with nothing. They made him a damn good offer, but he's holding out for the dictator-level bucks. Yes, he came up with an idea. You don't automatically get paid every time you think up a good idea that makes your boss rich. And what about the converse? If he came...

    The Cash In Transit (CIT) Robbery Thread

    He wasn't supposed to be the driver. It was a last minute change. Glad though, as Leo's well qualified. Can't go into it more.

    Paul O'Sullivan speaks openly about his experience with corruption in SA - a MUST SEE conversation.

    So is he still working for Zunaid Moti, the gangster he promised to lock up for murder until cash started flying around? And is he still working for the Bobroffs and "not" kidnapping the whistleblower trying to bring them down? Just curious.
