What are Big Bore Shoots all about?
BASA's regular practical shoots are inspiring events; men, women and juniors compete shoulder to shoulder, (in appropriate categories), in our stress fire events that are specifically designed to test the firearm, the ammunition, the shooter, and interaction between the three in a challenging, but fun-filled and exciting format.
Our events include pitting the shooter against moving dangerous game targets in field conditions that simulate a variety of big game scenarios. The goal: Honing shooter and rifle to perfection for the rigours of dealing with African big and dangerous game.
The Big Bore Events are considered one of the best aspects of the Association by many, and our practical shoots are unmatched in fun, fellowship, and friendliness.
You don't need to be a pro to take part either. Everybody is welcome at any level of skill, for one of the best and most practical Big Bore learning experiences ever.
