Kingston 1966
Gold Coast 2018


Shooting is an optional sport in the Commonwealth Games programme. It was first introduced in Kingston in 1966 and after a gap in Edinburgh in 1970, it was included in every Games up to and including Gold Coast 2018.

The four disciplines on the Commonwealth Games programme are: Clay Target; Pistol; Smallbore and Air Rifle; and Fullbore Rifle.

Scotland has a strong tradition of success in shooting and it is Team Scotland’s fourth most successful sport of all time in terms of number of medals won. It also boasts the most successful male and female athlete in terms of number of medals won.

Shooting has been included in the Commonwealth Youth Games on one occasion when it was part of the sports programme for Pune 2008.

The Commonwealth Games Shooting competition is held in accordance with the rules of the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) and under ICFRA Technical Rules for Fullbore Rifle events.
