hi,

there are tons of information on this forum on shooting as career. First, you have start by identifying what you can shoot and what you can shoot to take you to level that you want to. We all shoot all event, but cant excel in all forms, depending on the body built, interest and last your pocket.
Your age is still not late, you can still do well, depends on how much you can put in.

Afaque,

SA_Ali makes great sense. 32 is nothing. Keep fit and stay focused and you will do well. You can go to the shooting range at the Hyderabad Central University and explore the place.They have all the disciplines. May be you can find a shooter or two who would guide you. Just remember, skeet is not an inexpensive sport. But there are many with modest means who have made it. All the best.
