As at London in 1908, the 1912 Olympic shooting program had a large number of events - 18 at Stockholm as compared to 15 at London. And similarly, the events could basically be separated into five categories: 1) long-range rifle shooting, 2) small-bore rifle shooting, 3) pistol shooting, 4) clay bird trap shooting, and 5) running deer shooting. The pistol and rifle events were held at [Kaknäs], while the running deer and clay trap events were held at [Råsunda].
Sweden and the United States dominated the competitions. Both won seven gold medals, with Sweden winning 17 medals in all to the 14 won by the United States.
