Rifle shooting is the most versatile shooting discipline.  Rifle shooting competitions can range from long range stationary positioned shooting, to tactical close range moving shooting.  Many of these events are designed to mimic real world situations.  Swat teams will train using obstacles and friendly/ unfriendly recognition with speed and accuracy being scored, and there competitions that resemble these scenarios.  These styles of events generally stay within 100 yards to target.  Other rifle events mimic hunting situations where the shooter remains stationary and shoots for accuracy.  Distances can range upwards of 600-1000 yards for these events.    Shooting positions can vary between standing, sitting, crouched, or prone.
