Shooting is a sport, which has become popular only in recent years. It is true that the Thais have long known how to use pistols and rifles and have organized occasional shooting contests. These contests were introduced as part of festivals and fairs, and simply for amusement. No thoughts were given to the question of the types of pistols or rifles used, the distance and the kind of targets to be adopted. According to practice, so long as the weapons, the distances and the targets were all of the same type, the contests were fairly organized. The shooters, in fact, not only had some fun out of the contest, but gained considerable pride if and when they hit the targets. The onlookers too had a lot of excitement by just watching. In the course of time those shooting enthusiasts, who were of the opinion that contests should be organized along international lines, founded a shooting association in 1959. In the following year the Association was able to send a team to take part in the Seventeenth Olympic Games. The Association is confident that, with constant and painstaking practice, it will be able to produce in the future marksmen as good as those of any nation. Its efforts are now beginning to pay off, as Thailand has won many gold medals in international shooting events.
