    the shot

    You must maintain absolute control of the shot at all times.

    This sentence is taken from Collins Cobuild Usage. But I wonder what 'the shot' means in this context. Could someone explain it, please?

    Thank you in advance.

    Shot can mean anything you use to shoot - bullet, any type of balls or even photographic shot. You would not know without the context.
