Shooting is the governing body for the sport of target shooting in Scotland,
bringing together Scotland’s individual associations to support development of
the sport at grassroots level and performance on the international stage as
well as to discuss other matters which affect all of the shooting disciplines.
Shooting currently works with the following associations in Scotland – to find

SCTA - Scottish Clay Target Association
SPA - Scottish Pistol Association
SRA - Scottish Rifle Association (Full-bore Rifle)
SSRA - Scottish Small-Bore Rifle Association
By uniting under
the umbrella of Scottish Target Shooting, these associations are able to plan
the development of the sport together, ensuring resources are distributed where
they are needed most. It will also ensure a clear and consistent pathway for
athletes, coaches and officials can be developed, catering for all disciplines under
the remit of the governing body.
As a single body
the sport is also better placed to enter into discussions with various local,
national and international agencies. For example, committee members from Scottish
Target Shooting are working closely with sportscotland and the Scottish
Government to ensure the sport will secure a lasting legacy from the Glasgow 2014
Commonwealth Games that will benefit all disciplines and levels of performance for
many years to come.

potential to compete at the Commonwealth Games and is responsible for selecting

Youth Games and the Commonwealth Games.
