The International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) is a shooting sport based on the concept of practical shooting. Accuracy, power and speed are all required to achieve a maximum score.
The typical course of fire is an array of targets, which the competitor must engage with two hits each (sometimes more). Also, steel plates that fall when struck can be added to a course of fire, or stage. The shooter's time is recorded electronically, by means of a timer that detects the sound of the shots.

The Steel Challenge is a speed shooting competition.  The targets, made of steel, range in size from 10 inch round plates to 18 inch x 24 inch square plates.
Competitors are scored based solely on the time it takes them to shoot each stage. The last target that is shot is known as the stop plate, which stops the timer. All primary target hits made after the stop plate has been struck, will be scored with a 3 second penalty each. The maximum time permitted for a run is 30 seconds and a competitor will be stopped and asked to reload if they reach the 30 second limit. Each competitor shoots each stage five times, with their slowest run dropped, excluding the stage Outer Limits where only four runs are shot and the top three counted. The competitor's best four out of five runs are totaled for their stage score and the eight stage scores are added together to establish the competitor's match score. The winner is the competitor with the lowest overall time.

Timed pistol shooting matches shot over various distances. Most matches make use of turning targets to expose the target to the shooter for a limited time only.
During the late 1970’s it began to become apparent that the then National Shooting Associations did not really cater for the needs and aspirations of the growing body of full bore pistol shooters in Britain. The National Pistol Association was born. In the 1980's the NPA was introduced to South Africa. Probably the greatest legacy that the NPA gave shooting was the Annual National Pistol Meeting held at Bisley over the late Spring Bank Holiday weekend in the UK. The meeting still lives on today as the Phoenix Meeting. The meeting became the largest pistol-shooting event in Europe and regularly attracted teams from Europe and individual shooters from all parts of the Globe.
Since the 1980's Western Province Pistol Association has continued to be involved and actively promote the sport. Shortly after the new gun laws were introduced in Great Britain sadly the NPA discipline faded away in the UK. However due to a lot of international interest the sport continues to gain popularity. Many international shooting organisations are adopting NPA as it provide exciting competition to many shooters that have standard hand guns.

The NSA is a SAPS Accredited Hunting and a SAPS Accredited Sport-shooting Association and has its activities focused on assisting the busy Executive who is an enthusiastic hunter and/or sport-shooter by allowing for members to participate as their time allows them to do. NSA for instance presents In-House Postal Target Shooting Competitions for all calibres of handguns and all calibres of hunting rifles in a format that allows members to shoot prescribed shooting tables on their own time on ranges of their own choice, without having to be bound by shooting activities which are directed by time and place. Members post shot targets to the office where these are kept on record for purposes of being able to present proof of activities when members have to renew their firearm licenses. NSA presents an Annual National Postal Target Shooting Competition.

Trapshooting is a specific form of clay target shooting. Trapshooting is a game of movement, action and split-second timing. It requires the accuracy and skill to repeatedly aim, fire and break the 4 1/4 inch disc which are hurled through the air at a speed of 42mph, simulating the flight path of a bird fleeing a hunter.
The shooter is required to shoot at a target after he calls pull. It does not matter in scoring if the shooter hits only a small piece of the target or whether he shatters the target. The target is considered a dead or lost bird. If the target is hit it is dead.
