Background:   This match is shot by women at the Olympic Games, the Commonwealth Games                        and ISSF World Cups.

The 25 Metre Pistol match is shot with .22 calibre ammunition from a five-shot magazine.

This 60 shot match is divided into a 30 shot precision series and a 30 shot rapid-fire series.

The precision, or slow-fire stage, is fired in a six series of five shots, and competitors have five minutes per series.   In the 30 shot rapid-fire stage (often called duelling), competitors shoot rounds of five shots.

The course of fire for 25 Metre Pistol matches can be found in the North Western Pistol Club Induction Handbook
Happy Shooting!!
