The non-profit organization Sheepdog was founded in 2018 as a multidisciplinary club with different themes such as:
We have started to develop the shooting club within Sheepdog and will gradually start up the other disciplines depending on the demand and the infrastructure.
Because Sheepdog is more than a shooting club !
What makes our shooting club different ?
We have put great emphasis on good coaching and pedagogy.
We really teach at all levels.
And to keep our shooting dynamic, our slogan is: “shoot fast and accurate”.
The two main disciplines are:
– Precision shooting
– Parcours shooting
Parcours shooting is dynamic shooting where you have to move and shoot at different targets under time pressure (paper, steel, moving, etc…).
150 EUR / YEAR
Here are some of the details of how our club works and what it can do:
The annual fee is 150 Euros, which gives you access to our two shooting ranges that we rent for the moment, that is to say to the two “divisions” of our shooting club.
A classic range, the CTA located rue des Lapins in Anderlecht where you can practice shooting with a handgun of classic caliber (9mm, .45 ACP, 357 magnum, etc. …) or pistol and rifle in .22lr
The range is open every Thursday from 7pm to 10pm in free access and 1 week on 2 we are present.
Attention new shooters without any experience are obliged to come and practice shooting during some sessions where we are present.
It is obvious that the club is not open 24 hours a day but we offer you instructors who can help you and correct you at your request.
This is the PRACTICAL SHOOTING part where you learn the different techniques and handling of a handgun while carrying the weapon in a holster with several magazines, etc…..
These group or individual sessions, which are true shooting sports classes, take place 2x a month on a Sunday (date mentioned on the website) from 1pm to 4pm.
Three hours and minimum 150 rounds….. during which you learn all skills to use a handgun efficiently for the purpose of practicing this sport, this goes from grip, draw, magazine change, shooting on multiple targets, etc, etc……
Please note that these courses are only based on shooting sports, no military or police techniques/tactics are learned.
The SHOOTING SPORTS courses take place at the Shooting Club Brussels in 1150 Woluwé-Saint-Pierre and are paying, 25 Euros for the 3h (ammunition not included of course), at this price you will understand that these courses are only admitted to SHEEPDOG members, however you can always try before registering for the sum of 50 Euros.
After this Sunday session, the range is reserved from 4pm to 5pm (free of charge) for members who want to shoot with long guns or other more powerful guns or the caliber can not be used rue des Lapins, e.g. a .308 or .223 rifle, etc…..
It is MANDATORY to be in ownership of a Sport Shooter’s License (SSL) from one of the approved federations in Belgium, so not necessarily with us, but it is a legal obligation.
However, if you do not yet have an SSL, we will take care of the administrative procedures for you at the VSK (Vlaamse SchietsportKoepel). It is a request of the federations that the shooting clubs take care of the administrative procedures.
For the first year, a one-time payment of 100 Euros is required to obtain a provisional SSL for 12 months, which covers the insurance and registration fees at the VSK.
(A: Revolver – B: Pistol – C: Smoothbore long gun – D: Rifled long gun – E: Black powder gun), you can ask for all of them, the price does not change.
One advantage with VSK is that if you have a MODEL 4 for a weapon of the requested category, you can have provisional SSL permanently converted without an additional exam.
Provided the usual paperwork, which we can certainly give you a hand with.
The great advantage of an SSL is that you are not required to carry a weapon, you can borrow a weapon that corresponds to one of your categories (provisional SSL or definitive).
This allows you to immediately begin practicing shooting without having to wait for the long administrative steps involved in purchasing a firearm
Also convenient to test a few different models without having to purchase one each time.
To convert your provisional SSL to a final SSL, you must :
We compile your file and arrange everything with VSK for you.
