The future of shooting sports (Panel discussion)
Shooting sports and the conflicting demands of popularity, society and politics – yesterday, today and tomorrow
More than a million people in Germany engage in shooting, either as a leisure activity, or as a recreational or high-performance sport. Their basic rights are being restricted, they come up against controls imposed by the authorities, and often also face rejection by society. Traditional static disciplines are losing their appeal, whereas “action” shooting sports are enjoying strong growth. A change of direction or just a rearguard action? Policy-makers, civil servants, sports practitioners and representatives of industry, trade and the press will discuss potential solutions.
