This trophy was donated by Kings Sports to the Association and was first shot for during 1993, giving it a 24-year history. From 2002 to 2007, the Trophy was consecutively won
by the Midlands Waidmannsheil team. It was then decided by the Association that the team should permanently keep the trophy. From 2008, the Kings Trophy was replaced
by the Nyala Trophy.
We believe the Kings Trophy is part of the Association’s history and therefore wish to return it to the Association for another proposed shooting competition.
Rowan Kirton of Kings Firearms has kindly agreed to sponsor the ammunition for the shoot as well as some prizes. You don’t not necessarily have to use this ammunition.
Should you use your own ammunition, you may take the sponsored ammunition home, subject to having the necessary licence.

A four-man team, of which a minimum of three members must be Association members in good standing with a maximum of one invited like-minded guest per team. Rules as per latest .22LR rim fire rifle CHASA Sport Shooting Format. Competitors may use either standard or open class firearms as per regulation. An additional 20 silhouette targets will be shot in the quarry at know ranges. Each team member will have to shoot five shots. The team will nominate who shoots which targets. Targets will have to be shot in sequence with one shot per target. Make sure you know your 22LR’s trajectory up to 120m.
All members shoot at the same target per range, with no individual scoring. New targets will be affixed for each new team shooting. The gong shoot will, out of necessity, have
to be shot individually. However, a total gong shoot score will be added to the team score. In the event of a ti ed score, each team will nominate an individual shooter to shoot off at the furthest target with a minimum of five shots. The highest score will win. In the event of a dispute, the NHGC Committee will have the final and binding decision.
