Target shooting is a very popular sport, recognised as one of the safest sports in the country. It is competed for at the Commonwealth Games and was one of the original sports in the modern Olympic Games.
Target shooting has been around for hundreds of years going back through history. Many societies practised hitting an object with a projectile. Todays target shooters use many types of firearms to fire a projectile into a fixed target at a variety of distances, with the ultimate goal of being more accurate than your rival.
Target shooting requires its participants to have self-discipline and control it is conducted on dedicated ranges and is one of the few sports to be fully inclusive - where men and women, able-bodied and disabled, can compete side-by-side for fun or competition.
