Inclusivity Rules! Disabled and less able shooters CAN shoot in competitions!


It’s amazing how many people who have contacted the Disabled Shooting Project team have been under the impression that shooters using non-standard positions or techniques are not allowed to take part in competitions. Fortunately, they are wrong!


One of the greatest things about target shooting is its phenomenal accessibility for almost all types and levels of disability, and the fact that having welcomed less able people into the sport it then embraces them fully on the competitive front. Admittedly not all disciplines are open to all types of disability, but as a sport we are still way out in front of all other mainstream sports – and still striving to improve further.


So what are the options for the principal categories,


smallbore, field target, fullbore and clay target? Smallbore (.22 and air)


Yes, there are segregated competitions for those who shoot the Paralympic disciplines under the rules of the International Shooting Committee for the Disabled (ISCD). Sadly, we have not yet found international competitions that are open to those who, whilst they are certainly disabled, do not meet the ISCD’s criteria for smallbore disciplines. It is an area that we will be exploring as soon as resources permit.


On the domestic competition scene, however, the situation is fantastic. In smallbore disciplines, there is total inclusivity in all competitions run under NSRA rules; i.e. the majority of domestic championships, leagues and open shoots, right up to home countries internationals. The system allows anyone to shoot with modifications to the conventional equipment
