All Africa IPSC Championship

    The Zimbabwean city of Bulawayo recently hosted the All Africa IPSC Championship. Instead of deer and coyote silhouette they have zebra and warthogs!

    It is sad that only three African countries (Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa) were able to field shooters. Outside of these three countries there are not a lot of legally held guns in Africa.

    Libya is said to have a higher number of guns/capita than South Africa but these are all technically illegal or held by security forces. Unless they have passed laws recently saying otherwise, civilian possession of guns is outlawed in Libya although these laws don’t seem to have been enforced since the Libyan revolution.
