Professional Shooting
Is there a professional circuit for shooting?

Like basketball has the NBA, football the NFL. Is there a sanctioning body for competition shooting?

The USPSA has many professional shooters traveling state to state shooting matches and getting paid by their sponsers.

Guys like Tom Knapp make a pretty good living doing shooting shows. I get the feeling it would be easier to get into any other professional sport than to become a professional shooter.

There are several governing bodies for shooting sports but like rj45 said the only way to be paid to do it is with sponsorship from companies.
