I would tag
sport=shooting as an area for preference .. that being the physical area 
where the shooting takes place.
It should be used with some other tag .. say leisure=pitch? Pity the 
wiki does not specify it!

I think shooting=range is not correct .. maybe shooting=gun to signify 
the type of shooting ... compared to arrow, crossbow, cannon ...
