A Practice Session is held before almost every Team and Elimination Challenge. During this session, an expert trains each team or each contestant in the use of the weapon, or weapons, that will be featured in the upcoming challenge.
Before Team Challenges, teams train separately with the expert. Before Elimination Challenges, nominated contestants train separately as well. Although the Practice Session differs from the challenge to follow, it features the basic shooting principles and skills that the contestants need to master for the challenge.
