I want to thank you for an awesome session yesterday. Jenny and myself thoroughly enjoyed time spent with you and we learned so much. You were such a wonderful trainer. Highly recommended. We were very blessed to have had your time.


Our time with Hamish was both educational and fun. He made sure we knew the fundamentals and were able to be safe on the range while still having an enjoyable experience. His step by step approach is thorough and professional. Hamish is friendly and accommodating. We look forward to our next session with him.

I had an outstanding experience today with Hamish Deal. All my expectations were definitely met. I learned a few new things that greatly improved my shooting and handling of my firearm. I am really happy that he went through all the safety rules with me before allowing me to pick up a firearm. Even when I made a few mistakes, he was very patient and helped me until I got it right. He is very observant, immediately spotting my mistakes. He is very kind to me and I’m extremely satisfied with the outcome of my lesson.

Thank you, that was a great orientation session and very well done shooting session.

I feel that I have made the best choice in speaking to you and under your guidance and support. I know that it’s possible to achieve the goal of being a safe and responsible firearm user and owner.



I spent a really enjoyable and insightful day with Hamish on gun orientation, use and safety. Hamish has a great approach to teaching clients how to safely operate a firearm. He patiently guides even the very green beginners with ease to the where they need to be with gun safety. Hamish is a great instructor on the shooting range and walked us through all safety protocols and how to shoot accurately. I can highly recommend Hamish if you need to learn how to use a firearm Safely. Thanks Hamish!



I was referred to Hamish Deal from a friend of mine when I was looking to start the lengthy and detailed firearm licence process. Hamish is personable, professional, highly knowledgeable and approachable. His understanding and training of the firearms act and it’s requirements was excellent. Hamish also took me for an afternoon of gun handling and shooting, that solidified my technical knowledge with practical pointers. I am now very comfortable to tackle the process. Thank you Hamish for an excellent day, I would recommend your services to anyone.

I was fortunate to be part of a course, customised for sport shooters. The course was presented by Hamish Deal.

His presentation skills kept me hooked from go, right through. He engaged with all of us frequently in theory and practical. He shared very good tips and advice, which I will be forever thankful for as it reflected the same day on my cardboard target.

I can certainly recommend Real Deal Resources, their Name says it all!

Just a short note and big thank you. If it were’t for your excellent, knowledgeable and professional service, help and advice, I would have abandoned my licence renewal application.

The amnesty and renewal processes went so smoothly due to your logistic support , including a coffee table!

I have no hesitation to recommend Real Deal Resources to anybody who requires services in your field of expertise.

Your thoroughness is outstanding and thanks again for sharing your knowledge and tips with a stranger.

God bless you!!



Hamish Deal is the best firearm instructor you can get..

I am an armed reaction officer and today I was on a practice shooting session and Hamish Deal was the instructor who assisted us and the way he gave the instructions was excellent, step by step as well as the way how he was doing it with passion and a calm voice.

Hamish Deal handles the practice as though he is the one who is coming for the practice, yet he is just perfect and brilliant with the rules and regulations of handling a firearm safely.

Thank you…Mr. Hamish Deal for your brilliant service and kindness.



A big thanks to Hamish for his assistance with my SAPS competency application. He managed the entire process excellently by handling all the administration, such as completing the SAPS 517 form and typing up some great testimonials to be signed by family and friends along with some top notch advice throughout.

Thanks to Hamish my application was accepted by my local DFO without any issues. Thanks for the great service as always!



Hamish, met een woord baie dankie vir jou superb hulp met my aansoek vir vuurwapen lisensie, ek was verstom wat jy in n kort tyd +- 48 uur uitgerig het.

Thanks a lot! Goeie besigheid!



I am 13 years old and it was my first time shooting a firearm and it was an amazing experience. Hamish taught me all the rules and principles of how to handle a firearm correctly. He is a very patient coach and I cannot wait for my next lesson.


Thanks to Hamish for drilling good habits into me with regards to using a firearm, particularly the use of a handgun. After just two sessions with Hamish I was able to successfully complete my theory exam on the firearm control act as well as the safe use of a handgun along with the practical exam. I cannot stress how much of a help you have been. I would recommend that anybody interested in gaining experiences using a firearm approach Hamish for assistance.

For Hamish everything is about safety. He makes everyone feel safe on the range by enforcing strict safety measures. He is a very patient coach and even if the range is a ‘serious’ environment, he ensures that we still have fun.

I have had the privilege of training under Hamish in the use of firearms for both sport shooting and defensive purposes. His training approach rests on an impressive experiential foundation of the use of a variety of firearms in a range of different applications. However, what sets him apart from other trainers is his passion for empowering those that he works with. This ensures that not only sound technical skills are provided, but a true understanding of the safe and effective application of firearms.

I met Hamish at BPC just a little more than a year ago when I first joined the club. He immediately took me under his wing and made me feel very welcome. Hamish is always willing to help not only with the shooting related and club related things but with personal stuff too. In the little time I have known him, he has tought me so many things about the sport of shooting as well as what real friendship is. I look forward to the next year and know that under his mentorship, I can become the best I could possibly be.



Thank you to Hamish for spending great time with me through a deep dive training at Bellville Pistol Club. 100% of patience and great advice alongside the session. Expectations are more than fulfilled if you have the chance to train with Hamish. Thank you.


First experience shooting a firearm was made really special by Hamish. It was an adrenaline rush and loads of fun but also a very serious experience as made clear by Hamish who portrayed the rules and principles of using a firearm in a manner that was easy to understand and to implement. This is a day I won’t soon forget and I will be back to do my competency.



Thanks to Hamish for the amazing orientation session at Bellville Pistol Club. It was a new and very exhilarating experience. He taught me all the rules and fundamentals of how to handle a firearm correctly. I am very pleased and impressed with the overall experience and I will definitely be coming back for more and would recommend him for group events as well. Thank you.


Second training with Hamish at Bellville Club Pistol, going deep dive more around the physical movement around the targets. As usual, advices and tips are great and we can see some improvements from the first shots to the end of today session. Valuable training to progress through challenging exercises. Thank you.


Only one word describes Hamish’s service BRILIANT!
