Men's

The first few Olympiads saw a large number of assorted shooting events without much standardization.

When shooting was reintroduced in 1932, it consisted of only two events. From this, the number of events have increased steadily until reaching the 2000-2004 maximum of seventeen events. The 2008 games had only fifteen. Events marked as "Men's" were actually open events before the inclusion of separate women's events in that discipline. Two women won medals in such mixed events: Margaret Murdock, silver in 50 m Rifle Three positions (1976) and Zhan Shan, gold in Skeet (1992).

Events on the current programme are listed at the top.
