Shooting sports is a collective group of competitive and recreational sporting activities involving proficiency tests of accuracy, precision and speed in using various types of firearms.
Different disciplines of shooting sports can be categorized by equipment, shooting distances, targets, time limits and degrees of athleticism involved. Shooting sports may involve both team and individual competition, and team performance is usually assessed by summing the scores of the individual team members. Due to the noise of shooting and the high (and often lethal) impact energy of the projectiles, shooting sports are typically conducted at either designated permanent shooting ranges or temporary shooting fields in the area away from settlements
Sport Shooting tests the skill and ability of the shooter and equipment and can be practiced by old and young and can also be a family sport.
Currently, there are a number of sporting disciplines that can be practiced. Depending on your interest, some of these disciplines can be highly competitive while some shooters may opt to participate for fun and recreation. There are a number of these shooting disciplines that form part of the Olympics where the ultimate test of skill and endurance are tested.
