- Action Shooting
A generic term for a variety of shooting games usually characterized by extreme speed of fire, relatively powerful handguns, medium to large targets and short to medium ranges. Often called "Combat Shooting." IPSC-style competitions, bowling pin and falling plate matches are all typical of this type of shooting. Practical shooting is a sport which challenges an individual's ability to shoot rapidly and accurately with a full-power handgun, rifle, or shotgun. To do this, shooters take on obstacle-laden shooting courses called stages, some requiring many shots to complete, and others just a few. While scoring systems vary between practical shooting organizations, each measures the speed with which the stage is completed, with penalties for inaccurate shooting.
