In the first part of this chapter, performance indicators in target sports are defined and justified. A focus is put on Olympic sports (archery, rifle – specifically, biathlon – shooting, and pistol shooting). In particular, aspects of movement kinematics in terms of postural balance and aiming stability are discussed. After that, an overview of psychophysiological research in the area of precision shooting is given and other aspects which influence the shooting performance are reviewed. Methods for acquisition and analysis of respective parameters and/or time courses of parameter values are presented.
