In this chapter, we explore some of the psychological factors that have contributed to the international success of Indian shooters. Both authors have, at various times, provided psychological support for the Indian shooting team and have observed at first hand the progress that has been made. They have also worked for many years with other international shooters, including the national teams of Australia, Italy, Great Britain, Ireland, Iran, Malaysia,
and Singapore. We chronicle the support provided for the Indian shooting team and discuss psychological factors that influence shooting performance. To give these accounts greater authenticity, we have faithfully reproduced the views of the shooters themselves, in their own words where possible, to explain the psychology of sport shooting.
