In Practical competitions, a variety of target types are used (paper and steel, stationary and moving, scoring targets and penalty targets).


There are no set ways that these targets are arranged, nor even how many targets are used in a single match.


Shooting stages typically requires competitors to move away from a starting position to enable then to see and engage the targets. This adds an athletic element to the test as well as an intellectual one in that the competitor is required to work out the most efficient manner and order of engaging the targets, taking into account his/her own shooting skills and athleticism, the competitor is then scored on his/her time and accuracy.


Practical competitions are most often for center-fire pistols and revolvers of calibers from 9mm to .38, competitions are also held for rifle and/or shotgun.
