This stamp issued by Monaco commemorates the 100th anniversary of Monaco rifle shooting organization. La Carabine de Monaco was established in 1912 and its creation marked the beginnings of the sport of shooting in the Principality. The first rifle range was situated on the Rock and was inaugurated in 1920. In 1994, a new, ultra-modern range of more than 4,000 m2 was built in the centre of the Fontvieille district. Monegasque competitors regularly take part in all kinds of shooting events at the Olympic Games.
