RIFLE & PISTOL SHOOTING SPORTS

(Teacher I/C - Mr Dhrigpal Singh)

Shooting as a sport is a collective group of competitive and recreational sporting activities involving proficiency tests of accuracy, precision, and speed in shooting-the art of using various types of ranged weapons, mainly referring to man-portable guns (firearms and airguns, in forms such as handguns, rifles and shotguns and bows /crossbows.)

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 designated permanent shooting ranges or temporary shooting fields in the area away from settlements.
