HERTS AND ESSEX SHOOTING ASSOCIATION
Copyright © Herts & Essex Shooting Association
“Practical shooting requires a blend of accuracy, power, and speed so that you acquire a winning combination.”
The discipline includes multiple targets, moving targets, targets that react when hit, penalty targets, or even partially covered targets, obstacles, and movement. These all play a part in the challenging sport of practical shooting.
Practical Shooting is currently the second most popular international target shooting discipline, being exceeded in terms of global participation only by the events administered by the Union International de Tir (U.I.T.) which dates from the latter part of the nineteenth century.
However the International Practical Shooting Confederation has gone a long way towards closing the gap and today numbers some 85 affiliated nations including most European countries.
The appeal of the sport lies in the diversity of the courses of fire available to the shooter. Targets vary in size, shape, position and distance from 3 to 60 yards (400 for rifle).
