Shooting | Handguns Shotguns: Shooting is a marksmanship sport that involves firing rifles, handguns (pistols and revolvers), and shotguns at various targets. Archery is used to assess proficiency by shooting at a target (c. 1300). Because of the murky early history of firearms, it is unknown when target shooting began. Firearms mainly commence in warfare then uses in this game. The sport’s early origins are primarily based on rifle shooting.

The first known contest place at Eichstäat, Bavaria, in 1477; the shooters competed at 200 meters with matchlocks (220 yards). A modern rifle shooting position is depicted in a Swiss picture from 1504. Contestants fire at targets in the background from enclosed and covered shooting booths. Each target flanks by a small house where a target marker hide, and then the hit value is displayed to the shooter and the judges via their staff or poles. In the front right, the judges and scorers sit down at a table under a roof. Many wind flags are floating, and spectators are also flying.
