Shooting is marksmanship sport based on precision and focus. Fully engaged on hitting one target, shooters are trained to be calm under pressure. Shooters in matches aim to hit targets that are varying distances away. The shooter with the highest degree of accuracy wins the competition. Shooters must be dedicated to a lifelong practice, as the skill is often refined over a period of years.
