Though the equipment used for shooting sports can be dangerous, when compared to other sporting activites (football, swimming, walking etc.) shooting is a quite safe sport.
Builds Physical Discipline:
In an age of the “couch potato”, this sport can help build many physical disciplines that are not only healthy but enjoyable. Increased strength, improved stamina, elevated hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills are just a few of the physical disciplines acquired in these sports that apply to life in general.
Increases Mental Discipline:
The sport of shooting, to the surprise of many, is primarily a mental sport. Experienced marksmen think sport shooting is 90% mental. Concentration levels are sharpened and expanded.
Well of course it is affordable!! How do you think people like Suma Shirur, Tejaswini Sawant, Vijay Kumar, Jitu Rai, etc. from humble backgrounds are competing at such a high level? Believe it or not most athletes hail from really humble backgrounds and what maƩers at the end of the day is your ability to work hard and sincerely.
