Practical Shooting

Practical Shooting is a Mount Barker Sporting Shooters club event where participants use pistol / revolver, rifle and shotgun on a variable course.


Typically shotgun knock-down metal targets are used for the shotgun section at 10 – 15m, paper targets combined with no-hit penalty targets are used for the pistol section from 5m to 25m and swinging metal targets at 25m for the rifle section.

The field usually also has barricades in place so that participants have to complete each section from a doorway or window. The pistol section is often conducted as a shoot while moving component.
