At SouthernSky Operations we have a passion for firearms, and our aim is to share our passion with anyone who is interested, and to empower men and women to learn, use and enjoy firearms safely and responsibly. We focus on a select clientele of law enforcement, government departments, security companies and various end users.
We are in a unique position – Having been in the firearm industry in Johannesburg for many years, we have decided that it might be a good idea to try something similar in a different place. We did some market research and picked Durban. We felt that there was a unique gap in the market and that we could offer something special. Not necessarily by offering unique products, but by offering a unique shopping experience for our clients by being heavily customer-oriented.
Our clients know that when they come into our store their individual needs will be catered for, whether it’s just a cup of coffee or chatting about the their specific needs.
Our value proposition is distinctive because we provide individual services and a friendly environment that is wholly focused on the customer.
Our shop is where the business and dealings are made; it is the heart of SouthernSky Operations, as here you will find top-quality staff ready to assist and advise you on all your security needs. The shop is stocked with numerous handguns, rifles, shotguns, ammunition, accessories, clothing, tactical gear and more. What you cannot find in our shop, we can easily arrange for you in an acceptable time period.
The Vault is located within the shop and secured by an SABS-approved level 3 safe door. The safe is roughly 40 m2, with shelves for handguns and long guns, and is completely dry and secure from the elements.
We offer storage facilities for clients looking to store firearms, ammunition and equipment. Our Vault has been designed in such a way that clients have separate storage areas designated solely for their firearms, ammunition and equipment.
SouthernSky Operations have a dedicated in-house team setup to assist with all transportation and collection needs clients may have. We have a fleet of vehicles all with the relevant SABS and SAPS certification, which allows us to transport dangerous goods, firearms and ammunition.
We have various MOUs set with preferred service providers that have indoor, as well as outdoor ranges. We take safety and security very seriously and only recommend shooting ranges that have the same mindset and outlook. All ranges are geographically located within accessible distance from SouthernSky Operations.
Our affiliated Training Academy has 2 classrooms where lectures are presented; one large and one medium-sized classroom. The classrooms are equipped with practice firearms, dummy rounds, props and white boards. There is also a large floor area for dry fire practice routines, movable standing boards to simulate cover shooting/house clearing and close quarter combat training.
