Shooting at the 2016 Summer Paralympics shall consisted of twelve events, eight for rifle and 4 for pistol, across a range of men’s, women’s and mixed events.

Paralympic shooters were also classified according to the extent of their disability. The classification system allows shooters to compete against others with a similar level of function.

Shooting classifications are:

  • SH1 – competitors who do not need a shooting stand
  • SH2 – competitors who use a shooting stand to support the firearm’s weight

Any athlete awarded a qualification slot in one event is permitted to enter other eligible event if they have a minimum qualification score.
