Practical shooting is one of the fastest growing shooting sports in Australia. The discipline – which caters to rimfire and centrefire pistols, revolvers, rifles and shotguns – is attracting attention because of its high-speed and high-energy. Practical shooting is a challenging and active discipline that tests the capacity of the competitor and their equipment. Most matches comprise a minimum of three stages and the courses of fire are designed to offer challenging and active scenarios that test the capacity of the shooter and their equipment. Each of the stages differs from the last to push the competitor’s abilities and firearms to their limits. The competitor is scored on the accuracy and time taken around a stage.
