  • There are two basic requirements for the promotion of this sport i.e. Availability of Shooting ranges and precision arms and ammunition. During the last few years many ranges have come up throughout the country. There are many international level shooting ranges in India. Ranges at Delhi, Pune, Trivandrum and Patiala (for shotgun events only) have the capacity to conduct any international competition. These ranges are equipped with latest version of Electronic Target System. The Government has relaxed import policy and now deserving marksmen (Renowned Shooters) can import Arms and ammunition of their event without paying Custom duty. No import license is now required for Air weapons and any individual can import these without payment of custom duty. These incentives will certainly attract many youngsters to take up shooting as a career sport. The process of acquiring the arm license has also been simplified and any aspiring shooter can apply for an arm license to acquire an arm to pursue his/her shooting. The renowned shooters can keep up to 10 weapons under the prescribed norms.
