Precision is a description of random errors, a measure of statistical variability.
Accurizing is the process of improving the accuracy and precision of a gun (firearm or airgun).
A benchrest rifle is a type of rifle with a barrel and mechanism that has been built into a machine rest.
A centerfire cartridge is a cartridge with a primer located in the center of the cartridge case head.
Handloading or reloading is the process of loading firearm cartridges or shotgun shells by assembling the individual components (case/hull, primer, powder, and bullet/shot), rather than purchasing completely assembled, factory-loaded ammunition.
Iron sights are a system of shaped alignment markers (usually metal) used as a sighting device to assist in the aiming of a device such as a firearm, crossbow, or telescope, and exclude the use of optics as in reflector (reflex) sights, holographic sights, and telescopic sights.

A rifle is a portable long-barrelled firearm designed for precision shooting, to be held with both hands and braced against the shoulder for stability during firing, and with a barrel that has a helical pattern of grooves ("rifling") cut into the bore walls.
Rimfire is a method of ignition for metallic firearm cartridges as well as the cartridges themselves.
Shooting sports is a collective group of competitive and recreational sporting activities involving proficiency tests of accuracy, precision and speed in using various types of ranged weapons, mainly referring to man-portable guns (firearms and airguns, in forms such as handguns, rifles and shotguns) and bows/crossbows.

A telescopic sight, commonly called a scope, is an optical sighting device that is based on a refracting telescope.
Varmint hunting is the practice of hunting vermin, generally small mammals targeted as a means of pest control, rather than for food.
The very-low-drag bullet (VLD) is primarily a small arms ballistics development of the 1980s–1990s, driven by shooters' desire for bullets that will give a higher degree of accuracy and kinetic efficiency, especially at extended ranges.
