Learn About Practical Shooting
Practical shooting is a modern and particularly “lively” and recreational sport for the shooter himself and for the spectators that requires speed, accuracy, flexibility, speed of manoeuvring and development of tactical and strategic perception. Although not an Olympic sport, it is practised in more than 90 countries and has hundreds of thousands of loyal athletes.
In this event, the shooter competes in a series of simulation venues called “stages” and is called in the shortest possible time to put the most precision in a series of targets that are in different distances and angles.
These goals in turn can be paper or metal, stationary or moving, simple or multiple, completely uncovered or partially covered, targets with mechanisms that when they are exposed, or trigger other targets or end dams or obstacles.
The shooter on his side must achieve the optimum combination between precision in his shots, and the speed with which he will manage to complete each stage.
