If you are a person that enjoys a personal challenge, likes to take the time to perfect technique, then the Sport of Target Shooting is for you! It takes a lot of skill to be able to place a shot into a circle no bigger than a 20 cent piece over a distance of 25mts. It sounds very easy to do, until you have to do it. To place 5 shots in the same circle becomes even harder; but, at the end of the shoot if you have done it, it is the same feeling as hitting a ‘hole in one’ at Golf. Many try, but only a few lucky ones achieve it. With Target Shooting everybody has the opportunity to succeed. It is only practice and technique that help you to achieve that 5 shots in the circle, time after time.
