“Bang-bang-bang, reload, down,” a few of the calls that echoed at Marksman’s Nest Shooting Range on 17 November 2020, when team Yzerfontein Armed Response passed their annual security compliance shoot.
By law, all security companies that deploy officers with firearms must undergo an annual security compliance shooting test to prove their value to the communities they serve.
After being tested in the prescribed manner, the aforementioned person is still compliant with Sections 9 (2)(q), 9 (2)(r) of the Firearms Control Act in the following firearms
The security compliance test is based on the same requirement as the security business purpose qualification test, and as prescribed for the different firearm categories. It’s of utmost importance that security officers and companies armed with firearms remain operationally fit and ready for their operational task. Simply put, you must remain on a high level of competence where you’re working with firearms. As with any other skill, your firearm proficiency must be maintained and the only way you can do that is to get out of your comfort zone, reload your magazines, and get to the range for your security compliance test. Bravo Team Yzerfontein Armed Response, BRAVO!
