    It is less violent than Rugby or Soccer. Have you seen somebody come off the shooting range with half his scalp removed, a broken neck or leg?

    Guido,
    The above two sports are more boring, by far, than what you are mentioning. Watching grass grow is much more exciting.
    Archery is more spectator friendly because you can see the arrow on the butt, while with shooting you don't see it as well: in spite of the availability of the latest electronic gadgets that shows you the POI, it is not very exciting.

    I think it is a matter of how it will be presented. If you escape the static cameras and plain results trap and rather follow the guns and the shooters, with variable angles, knowledgable comments, explanations on the technicalities, etc, you can make a good show.
    If americans can make tv shows from fishing (quite regular on dstv), then why not shooting? Anything with some sporting and competing character can do. Maybe not on a "live" basis like rugby but an hour-show presenting events like this one why not?

    It just shows you, we South African are not easily out shot, even by more experienced shots with much more high tech equipment.
    Well done guys and girls, see you all on Thursday morning at the airport.

    This was the World Championship for rimfire rifles and air rifles held in Milan.
    The thread is a bit misleading.

    MMP,
    Your are correct about the air rifles and rimfire rifles.You know this, but for those that don't. Next year (321 days from today) South Africa is also hosting the BR (All rifles)World Champion at Krokodilspruit, just outside Pretoria.
