Shooting at the 1984 Summer Olympics took place at Prado Olympic Shooting Park, Chino, California, United States. The games were historic as the first time women's events were included and also saw the inclusion of 10 metre air rifle. However, the shooting competitions were severely tainted by the fact that the games were boycotted by the entire Eastern Bloc, normally dominating most shooting events.
