Ensure that you are setup on WhatsApp to be added to a WA group, as we will correspond all detail on said Whatsapp Group. (note that the group will be set up about 3 weeks from kick off date)

WHAT TO BRING

First off – bring a positive attitude, open and willing to learn.

Bring your handgun, magazines, ammo, eye and ear protection, a proper holster and a proper belt. Ensure you can do a basic fitness test – 2.4km run, push-ups, pullups, situps etc.

WHAT TO LEAVE

Any Rambo, know-it-all attitudes and mindset.

To apply you will need to be medically fit enough to do exercise and to be able to pass a basic army fitness test. You will also need to own your own, licensed handgun.

You need at least your own licensed handgun, 3 x mags and proper holsters with good retention for both gun and mags. You will also need a good quality belt to ensure your gun sits sturdy on your person. Proper range attire, hardworking clothes and closed shoes. Proper ear and eye protection. You cannot shoot with your normal reading or sun glasses. You need ballistic protection. Sunblock, hat and your own chair. And also your own food and drinks for a long day. Watch the video below. 

The course will cost you R880 pm for 12 months. Included in this fee is the main session’s range fee. 

Included in this fee are the following

1. Range fees for the Lone Operator program (1 session per month)
2. Access our online portal with videos and notes on lessons
3. Lone Operator Cap
4. Free access to some of Fortis’ online courses
5. Discount on Fortis Stand Alone courses (where applicable)

Excluded from this fee are the following

1. Travelling to and from venues used for training
2. Ammunition needed for training
3. Range fees for courses outside the normal program
4. Any kit needed over and above what you currently have
5. Food and drinks

You will be informed on your team WhatsApp group what is needed for each session, including attire. Range clothes will be pants, a shirt, and closed shoes. Remember we are shooting from all positions so your clothes must be able to handle dirt and wear and tear. A hat and shooting glasses are good. We do have shooting glasses and ear muffs you can use on the range if you don’t have your own. Sunblock can help.

Included in your monthly payment is your main session’s range fee. Any other sessions you attend you will need to pay the range fee on the day in cash.

You can supply your own ammo. Or you can buy ammo from the instructors – NB – this ammo cannot be taken home and has to be used on the range as per law. The logistical arrangements around this will be sorted with each group on their first session. 

You can work on 100 rounds per session – sometimes 150 sometimes 50 – average it out on 100 rounds per session

Due to the shortage of ranges in Cape Town, we will mainly be using False Bay Range. But be willing to travel in case we need to move a session to another range.

The program runs over a 12-month period – with 1 session per month as the base. In Capetown, the sessions take place on Sundays due to range availability and usually starts from 13h00. (Ranges in Capetown is hard to come by).

The first 11 sessions are just 1 day (set aside the whole day for them) and 1 module is a night shoot. The 12th session is a day/night session and culminates the course.

You can catch up on a session with another group IF there is another group nearby that does the same session. You can also catch up sessions in Gauteng if and when you visit.

Payment is made on a monthly basis irrespective of whether you miss the session or not, payment is due, and you will then have to catch up on missed sessions with other groups as stated above.

In Cape Town, the possibility of catch-up sessions is very rare. And if available, we will have to charge for that session in full. The reason why we can keep the program cost-effective is all about the numbers. The range and instructor are booked 12 months in advance, so if we have to book the instructor for any other dates, it will depend on availability as well as the instructor’s daily fee. Dates are set 12 months in advance, so please book accordingly. Missing a session will not disqualify you from the course, but may mean you will have to wait another year for catch-ups when we run a new group.
