Shooting

Shooting is a sport that will put your control, concentration and precision into a constant test. Each competitor shoots at the 10 centric score rings, the score varies from the scale of 1 to 10, with 10 indicating the highest (centre scoring ring). However, the scoring zone would be further divided in the later stages of the competition, making 10.8 the highest score. Shooting competitions are divided into two major events; air rifle and pistol. Shooting competitors would be shooting at a distance of 10m, 25m and 50m.

The governing body for shooting is the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) which is also coordinated by the IPC Shooting Technical Committee following the modified rules of the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF).
