About Pierre

Pierre van der Walt is one of the doyens of African hunting and ballistics and is the widest published gunwriter in Africa.


His extensive experience and vast knowledge come from a life spent as a combat officer, a firearm and reloading instructor, a professional hunter and outdoor journalist, as well as being a leading lawyer in pro-gun and pro-hunting causes.


He has been awarded more Honorary Life Memberships by hunting and firearm bodies than any other African and has served as editor for the publications of three leading African hunting associations, BASA, SCI African Chapter and PHASA.

Pierre also is the author of several definitive books on African hunting cartridges.
