Shooting at the 1932 Summer Olympics

When shooting was reintroduced at the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, the extent of the competitions was far from those in the previous Games: it consisted of only two events, one rifle event and one pistol event, and no team events at all (which is still the case today). The competitions were held on August 12, 1932 and August 13, 1932.[1]
