About Sport

Shooting originated as a means of survival, and it was practiced in order to hunt. After the Industrial Revolution, shooting evolved into an elite sport. It is predominantly a skill-based sport where consistency, accuracy, and concentration are key features over one particular body type. There are 2 categories in shooting sports, 1. Pistol: Short firearms held with one unsupported hand in a standing position. Different pistols used for different events e.g. air pistols that use compressed air to discharge lead pellets, rapid fire pistols in which 5 pellets are shot in quick succession and traditional or free pistols which shoot one pellet at a time. 2. Rifles: Shoulder firearms. Air rifles use compressed air to discharge lead pellets. Rifles are fired in either a prone, standing, or kneeling position depending on the event, and the “three position” events incorporate all three.
