Guns can be very dangerous.

But the sport of air rifle shooting is controlled by lots of rules to make it safe.

These include learning how to handle a gun safely by never pointing it in a direction where it could injure anyone or cause damage.

There are lots of places where you can go to practise safely under supervision.

Air rifle guns for children can weigh around 7 pounds.

The target can vary, but it can be a piece of card that has circles on it.

The smaller circle you hit, the higher your score.

WHO WON?

Luke won the shooting with some great shots on target. So now it's three points to the boys and two to the girls.
