Great Britain has an excellent track record of international shooting success, whether at an Olympic, Commonwealth, or European level.
But the best thing about shooting is that it is not an exclusive sport – and it is a great leveler! Across the country, individuals from all walks of life enjoy a safe and exciting hobby that can be extremely rewarding.
Shooting is also one of the few sports that offer a genuine opportunity for disabled sportsmen and women to compete on an equal footing to their fellow able-bodied competitors.
Aims of National Shooting Week
- To provide free opportunities to try Olympic and Paralympic disciplines on a nationwide scale
- To enable anyone to try shooting for the first time
- To provide a participation strategy as laid out in the Government’s Charter for Shooting
- To promote respect for and understanding of legal firearms and airguns
