Similar to their Swiss counterparts, federal shooting festivals in Germany were held at intervals first of every three years, with rotating venues serving as host cities and ranges and extensive breaks during each world war. 2,100 participants from six nations took part in the festivities in 1900, held at 172 shooting ranges.
