This book is for children who are beginning to practice one of the many shooting sport disciplines, such as crossbow, archery, rifle, pistol, target shooting, etc. You have your target in your sights, you breathe calmly and then...the shot! Whether you shoot at cans or at targets, with balls, arrows, lasers or, later on, with actual sport ammunition - you want to be able to hit your target. We would like this book to be your practice companion. We will give you important information about equipment, techniques and your physical fitness. You will get tips for practicing at home and we will tell you how to recognize and avoid mistakes. The little stork will accompany you throughout the book. He is very skilled at using his long, pointy beak and almost always hits his target. He will tell you a lot about the shooting sport, and will give you tips on safety and a healthy lifestyle. In addition, the little stork offers you many opportunities for recording, filling in, coloring and doing brain teasers and he even wants to give you an award at the end. Have fun!
