Shooting Range Industries Lists Some Events at Handgun Shooting Sporting Events
Action Shooting Event: If you enter an event to shoot at an action shooting competition you need to be ready to move. The action comes from the movement of the targets and the area that you are required to traverse to get through the course. The targets can be stationery and just placed in specific locations while others will be moving and you need to time your shot right to hit it. The points are scored on how many of the targets you hit and usually the amount of time taken to complete the course. The course usually starts with your firearm holstered in some way and drawn out only at the start of the buzzer.
Silhouette Shooting Event: If you want to test your skills shooting at different distances from a stationary platform, this is a great event to enter. The metal targets are placed at pre-determined distances. You will get points based on where you hit each target and how accurate your shooting is.
Precision Shooting Events: If you want to go to an event that is most popular for handgun owners and spectators, you should enter a precision event. This is an event that is going to try your skills at handling your firearm with a single hand. The targets are placed about 10 to 50 yards in distance and you have to hit each one. This is an extremely demanding event and you need to be sure that you are ready by training well in advance.
