Shooting is the act or process of firing rifles, shotguns or other projectile weapons such as bows or crossbows.
Marksmanship has inspired competition by hitting targets and testing accuracy. International shooting events then evolved and many variations of the sport emerged.
Shooting was first incorporated into the Asian Games in 1954.
