10m Air Rifle
Governed by the International Shooting Sports Federation and included in the Olympics, 10m Air Rifle is shot over a distance of 10 metres from a standing position, unsupported, with a 4.5 mm (.177 in) calibre air rifle with a maximum weight of 5.5 kg. Competitions consist of 60 shots in 105 mins for men, possible score - 600, and 40 shots in 75 min for women, possible score - 400.

10m Air Pistol Women - 40 shots in a total time of 1 hour 15 minutes, including sighting shots.

25m Pistol Events

Centrefire Pistol 

Centrefire pistol consists of: a 5-shot precision stage where the target is the same as the 50m Free pistol with a 10-zone of 5 cm diameter; and a rapid-fire stage where, for each shot, the shooter has to raise his arm from a 45 degree angle and fire at a target the same as in 25 m Rapid Fire Pistol, with a 10-zone of 10 cm diameter.

Rapidfire Pistol

The Rapidfire Pistol (RFP) match is shot with a semi-automatic pistol in .22LR calibre at 25 metres. This is a self-loading pistol with maximum dimensions for barrel length, weight and sight radius specifications. 

Standard Pistol
The Standard Pistol match is shot with a semi-automatic pistol in .22LR calibre. This is self-loading pistol with 5.56mm calibre with maximum dimensions for barrel length, weight and sight radius specifications. 60-shot match is divided into 5-shot strings with different timings: 4 strings within 150 seconds each; 4 strings within 20 seconds each; and 4 strings within 10 seconds each.

50m Pistol (Men)

50m (Free) Pistol
50m Pistol (also called Free Pistol) is arguably the purest precision shooting discipline among the pistol events, dating back to the 19th century. The pistol, loaded with one round at a time, is .22 calibre and shot single-handed. These are precision pistols with long barrels, grips fitted to the shooter's hand, very light trigger pull, etc. The course of fire is 60 shots within a maximum time of two hours.

Most shooters excelling in 50m Pistol also compete at the same level in 10m Air Pistol, a similar precision event.

50 m Rifle Prone (Women)

20 shots are fired in the prone standing and kneeling positions. The time limit for all three positions, including the sighting shots, is 135 minutes. A small bore rifle as for the men but with a maximum weight limit of 6.5 kg. The shots are once again fired at the target’s centre, which is the size of a “Dime” coin, at a distance of 50 meters.
In the final, the best eight shooters fire 10 shots in the standing position with a time limit of 75 seconds per shot, and the score is evaluated in tenths. The final score is then added to the opening score to determine the total results.

50 m Rifle Prone (Men)

Sixty shots are fired in the prone position. Prior to the first competition shot, any number of sighting shots may be fired. The competition time, including the sighting shots, is 75 minutes. The distance of the target, the size of its centre and the rifle correspond to the 50 m rifle 3 positions match.
In the final, 10 shots are fired with a time limit of 45 seconds per shot in the “prone” position. The decimal score is added to the opening score to determine the winner.

50m Rifle 3 Positions (Men)

The shooter fires 40 shots each in the prone, standing and kneeling positions at a target 50 meters away. Prior to the first competition shot, any number of sighting shots may be fired. The rifle is a small bore rifle (single loaded) in 5.6 mm (.22 Long Rifle) caliber with a maximum overall weight of 8 kg with a well shaped stock incorporating adjustments to suite the individual, including a hook type butt plate and in the standing position only a palm rest if desired. Only “metallic” sights are permitted-see rifle sights. The centre ten, which is as large as a “Dime” coin, must be hit at a distance of 50 meters within a time limit of 45 minutes in the prone position, 75 minutes in the standing position and 60 minutes in the kneeling position.
The best eight shooters from this opening program are qualified for the final. The final consists of 10 shots in the standing position with a time limit of 75 seconds per shot. Each shot is evaluated in decimal tenths and added to the score of the opening program.

Skeet (Men & Women)

Guns weigh about 3 kg, which is less than those used for Trap and Double Trap and have shorter barrels. Because of the limited distance at which targets are shot (from about 4m to 30m) they shoot a very open pattern, which with a cartridge loaded with small pellets (2mm) these give a dense pattern and one which is still capable of breaking the target at these wide distance margins.
In the skeet event, the two targets are released from separate trap houses (high and low house) at either end of an arc. The course of fire consists of either singles or doubles. A “single” target is thrown from either house. A “double” consists of two targets thrown simultaneously, one from each house.
Competitors move through a semi-circular range featuring eight shooting stations. At each station, single and/or double targets are thrown at least 65 meters from the high (3.05 meters above level ground) station or low (1.05 meters above level ground) station house on either side for the range. The 110 mm or four-inch target travel at up to 88 km/h or 55 miles per hour and competitors may fire one shot per target. Competitors hold their 12-gauge shotguns at hip level until the target appears, which can be anywhere from 0.3 seconds after call. The men’s match consists of 125 targets, shot in five rounds of 25 over two days. Three rounds are fired on day one; two rounds plus the final are shot on day two. The women’s match consists of 75 targets, shot in three rounds on one day plus final.
After the qualification round of 125 targets for men or 75 targets for women, the top six competitors advance to a 25 target final round. The medals are awarded based on aggregate (qualification and final) scores.

Double Trap (Men & Women)

Guns used for similar to those used in Trap but have a slightly more pellet spread because the targets shot are only some 35 m or so from the shooter. However since two targets are released each time, the shooter must have extremely rapid reactions.
In double trap, two targets are released simultaneously at different heights and angles from the centre bank of traps (no.7, 8, 9). The targets come off from two traps simultaneously according to a predetermined program ranging in height from 3 to 3 ½ meters, and the shooter fires one shot at each target.
Competitors fire 12-gauge shotguns from five adjacent shooting stations. At each station, the 110 mm or four-inch targets are thrown two at a time from a underground bunker at speeds up to 80 km/h or 50 miles per hour. Competitors fire one shot per target. The match consists of 150 targets, shot in three rounds of 50 on one day.
The top six competitors advance to a final of 50 targets for men, 40 for women. The medals are awarded based on aggregate (qualification and final) scores.

Trap (Men & Women)

Guns Weigh over 4 kg, have barrel lengths anything up to 85 cm and have a single trigger that permits the firing of the two shots extremely rapidly. The gun barrels are designed to give a tight pellet pattern at the distance at which these targets are shot; the cartridges used must be loaded with pellets of size not exceeding 2.6 mm to be capable of breaking the target at these long ranges.

In the trap events, named for the device that fires the clay targets into the air, a bank of three traps set at different heights and angles sits within the trench in front of each shooter at the distance of 15m. The heights vary from one to four meters, and the shooter does not know which of the three traps will release next. As each target is released, the shooter is allowed to shots.

Athletes move through a series of five adjacent shooting stations. At each station, competitors mount their 12-gauge shotguns, call for the target and fire up to two shots per target. The targets, 11pmm or four-inch clay discs, are thrown from an underground bunker a minimum distance of 75 meters and at speeds of up to 105 km/h or 65 miles per hour. The men’s match consists of 125 targets shot in five round of 25 over two days. Three rounds are fired on day one; two rounds plus the final are shot on day two. The women’s match consists of 75 targets, shot in three rounds on one day plus final
