Western Cape Sport Shooting Federation (WCSSF) (previously WPPSA), would like to appeal to all sport shooters and gun owners alike to donate to Gun Owners of South Africa (GOSA ).

GOSA stands for upholding the rights of legal firearm owners. They have been instrumental in protecting and asserting the rights of law abiding firearm owners. This however does involve a significant amount of money for court cases, legal fees, etc. Their latest case involves objecting to situations where firearm owners licenses have expired; and those firearm owners are not allowed to renew their license, and were instructed to hand in their firearms for destruction.

There are various ways to contribute, including WCSSF trying make it easy and convenient for their members to contribute. Should you wish to contribute, you may do so in the following ways:

  1. CASH OPTION - Bring your donation to any official WCSSF match (currently, the next match will be the handgun champs taking place on 03 and 04 December 2017 at CPPC). Any amount welcome;
  2. EFT to GOSA OPTION - Make a direct EFT to GOSA (refer to their website for banking details – it would be appreciated if you could inform WCSSF of these as well. Please bear in mind the cost of the EFT when using this option, to ensure GOSA can benefit from your EFT;
  3. WCSSF/WPPSA ONLINE OPTION – Using the same process as you do for Match Registrations, go to the WCSSF website ( and select Match Registration, and contribute by “Registering for the Match”.

What is Western Province Practical Shooting Association (WPPSA)?

WPPSA organises and controls amateur practical shooting in the Western Province region of South Africa. WPPSA affiliates clubs and individual competitors to the national practical shooting body (SAPSA). We organise several provincial trials every year, as well as the Western Province champs toward the end of each year. In addition we sanction several inter-club competitions during the year. We conduct training courses for Range and Safety Officers, and hold development clinics for new shooters. WPPSA is run by councilers nominated by our member clubs (see the Constitution for details). The executive committee (Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary & Treasurer) are responsible for administrative affairs of the council. Exco members do not have voting rights on the council.

For a list of WPPSA Officers please refer to the Contact us page.
