The sport of shooting is governed worldwide by the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) which was founded in 1907 and is based in Munich. The three main divisions of the sport are pistol shooting, rifle shooting and shotgun shooting and within each of these are various events. Shooting has been an Olympic sport since the modern Games began in 1896. The number of shooting events at each Games has varied considerably from two to 21 but seems to have settled at 15 since 2008.
