Competitive shorting involves tests of speed, accuracy, or both and include sports which involve both firearms air guns, and crossbows, as well as hunting. Rifle shooting sports include gallery rifle shooting, running target ISSF shooting events which involves rapid shooting of a sideways-moving target from 10 and from 50 meters, and fullbore target shooting in which the shooters shoot at ranges between 300 to 1,200 yards. Pistol sports include metallic silhouette shooting which involves shooting at silhouettes shaped like animals at long distances, such as those usually used in rifle sports, practical shooting where the shooter moves during the shooting and where shooting times and accuracy are both factors in scoring. In the thirty meter match crossbow shooting competition, contestants shoot from kneeling and from standing positions, and the targets are black and white target cards, with the contestant shooting one shot per card.
