A Shooting Simulation Centre is a safe and economical way to practice shooting. The flexible nature of a simulator creates a perfect environment for novices and experienced shooters to practice shooting. The system provides challenging scenarios for advanced students as well as simplified training for beginners in a true virtual shooting range.
The weapons in use at the Simulation Centre have been de-commissioned by removing the firing pin. The de-commissioned weapons cannot therefore discharge live ammunition. The weapons in use at the Simulation Centre are activated by pneumatic compressed air and shots are activated through laser beam, hence there is no use for live ammunition.
Firing conducted at the Simulation Centre is designed to provide authorized personnel access to a facility where they can become proficient with firearms and practice both individual and group shooting. Individuals using the range shall become familiar with these safety rules and procedures prior to using the open range. The Simulation Centre safety rules and procedures help to provide supervision and allow for enforcement of these rules to reduce or eliminate incidents from occurring. All users are required to abide by and enforce these rules. All users are expected to politely point out to any user in violation of these rules, the nature of the violation, request they stop and if continued violation occurs, report the incident along with the violators name, if possible, to the Simulation Centre Manager or Instructors/Officers on duty for further action.
The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) Shooting Simulation Centre, the first of its kind in the West African sub region was officially commissioned by V/Adm S Amoama, the Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS) on Friday 23 April 2021. Personnel Allowed. The Simulation Centre is open to the personnel of the Military, the Presidential Security, National Security, the Police Service, BNI and other sister Security Agencies.
This procedure outlines the rules and regulations governing the use of the Simulation Centre facility. While shooting incidents are rare on Simulation Centres, the following rules and regulations are established to ensure safety and discipline for individuals using the Simulation Centre as well as the safety for surrounding properties.
Support the GAF, other sister Security Agencies and the National Security personnel to improve the quality of education and training in marksmanship by providing challenging scenarios for advanced students as well as simplified training for beginners in a true virtual shooting range before stepping out into the open range.
