A sport for all ages

Rifle

10m Air Rifle Men and Women

Air Rifle is shot from an unsupported standing position. Most rifles use compressed air (sometimes CO2 gas) to propel the 4.5mm (.177 inch) calibre pellet the 10m to the target. Rifles have a maximum weight of 5.5kg. Specialised clothing is worn to enhance the stability of the shooting position.

In the Qualification part of the competition, men shoot 60 shots (each shot scored in decimals, maximum 654) in 1 hour 15 minutes with a 15 minute period before the qualification time for

unlimited sighting shots. Women shoot 40 shots (each shot scored in decimals, maximum 436) in 50 minutes, again with a 15 minute period before the qualification time for unlimited sighting shots.

For the Final part of the competition, the top eight scoring competitors from the Qualification phase go forward to the Olympic Final. Each competitor starts from zero firing two 3-shots series, each in 2 minutes 30 seconds. After these 6 shots, there are a further 14 shots, each fired in 50 seconds, with the lowest scoring competitor dropping out after the 8th, 10th, 12th, 14th, 16th and 18th shots. The 1st and 2nd places are then decided after the 20th shot. Shots are scored to 1 decimal place, with a 10.9 as a perfectly centred shot.

Pistol

10m Air Pistol Men and Women

Air Pistol is shot from an unsupported standing position holding and firing the pistol with one hand. Most pistols use compressed air (sometimes CO2 gas) to propel the 4.5mm (0.177 inch) calibre pellet the 10m to the target. Pistols have a maximum weight of 1.5kg, the trigger must be able to support a weight of 500g before firing and must fit in a box of set dimensions. Flat-soled shoes that do not cover the ankle are the only specialised clothing allowed.

In the Qualification part of the competition, men shoot 60 shots (each shot scored in whole points, maximum 600) in 1 hour 15 minutes with a 15 minute period before the qualification time for unlimited sighting shots. Women shoot 40 shots (each shot scored in whole points, maximum 400) in 50 minutes, again with a 15 minute period before the qualification time for unlimited sighting shots.

For the Final part of the competition, the top eight scoring competitors from the Qualification phase go forward to the Olympic Final. Each competitor starts from zero firing two 3-shots series, each in 2 minutes 30 seconds. After these 6 shots, there are a further 14 shots, each fired in 50 seconds, with the lowest scoring competitor dropping out after the 8th, 10th, 12th, 14th, 16th and 18th shots. The 1st and 2nd places are then decided after the 20th shot. Shots are scored to 1 decimal place, with a 10.9 as a perfectly centred shot.

The competitions are open to all registered members and cater for all levels of ability. There are handicap competitions which gives everyone a chance at claiming victory.
