The first gun clubs were founded towards the end of the nineteenth century, and shooting events were included in the Olympic programme in the earliest of the modern games.Yet even at the dawn of the twenty-first century competitive shooting has remained confidential, for the use of weapons was long regarded as a military art rather than a sport. In the earliest games and right up to 1948 winners of shooting events were not rewarded with medals but with Olympic diplomas.There are now thirteen Olympic shooting events that belong to one of three major categories: rifle, clay pigeon shooting (shotgun), and pistol.The 1900 Paris games included events as recondite as "canon" (field gun) marksmanship.
