2016 has been a good year for ‘team Browning’ marksmen and women: 17 medals won at the European and World championships of Compak Sporting and Sporting! Just that!

Browning sponsors many top rank athletes who excel in such disciplines as Compak Sporting and Sporting. This year, we’re proud to announce that our shooters have harvested no less than 17 medals at major international championships!

 Results for Compak Sporting

Compak Sporting, for those who don’t know, is a discipline between Sporting and Trap. The shooting range consists of 5 firing points, with cages to limit their angles and prevent the shooters from aiming towards their neighbours.  There are all sorts of targets with a maximum of 15% rabbit (the bullseye).

Each post features a menu that shows the target order the shooter must observe, whether in mounted position or not.

Results for Sporting

Sporting Clay course hunting is a discipline that aims to simulate real hunting conditions for the shooter. Numerous launchers are needed to simulate the trajectories of a flight of partridge, woodcock, duck or pheasant…

One square-metre zones mark the firing points. The courses offered are similar to real hunt conditions with varying levels of difficulty in regard to vegetation, topography, etc. All trajectories are permitted.
