CM FEDECAT is not a new body in fact it developed from the International Union of Hunting (UIC) created in Switzerland in 1921 to cover the disciplines of live pigeon, clay target and running deer. The UIC established the rules for shooting sports. Then around 1969 the various international shooting groups developed in their own right and agreements were made which saw the UIT take sole control of the Olympic disciplines, and the other bodies shared the hunting and non-Olympic disciplines. These other World bodies developed into the CM FEDECAT and the FITASC that we see today.

F.E.D.E.C.A.T. Liechtenstein was set up  and became an official member of the World body CM FEDECAT in 2015. This official membership allows Liechtenstein shooters to compete in the international calendar, embracing all the disciplines here and abroad.
