Shooting is a test of accuracy and control, in which competitors use pistols and rifles to fire a series of shots at a stationary target.
Shooters are divided into wheelchair and standing groups.
Divisions are split into six sub-classes, each of which determines the type of mobility equipment the competitor is allowed to use:
SH1: For pistol and rifle competitors who do not require a shooting stand
SH2: For rifle competitors who have an upper limb disability and require a shooting stand
