Shooting sports is a collective group of competitive and recreational sporting activities involving proficiency tests of accuracy, precision and speed in shooting — the art of using various types of ranged firearms, mainly referring to man- portable guns (firearms and airguns, in forms such as handguns, rifles and shotguns) and bows/crossbows.
Different disciplines of shooting sports can be categorised by equipment, shooting distances, targets, time limits and degrees of athleticism involved. Shooting sports may involve both team and individual competition, and team performance is usually assessed by summing the scores of the individual team members.
