Schedule:      The Air Pistol matches are shot on Tuesday evenings from 5.30 pm at our                                      indoor range at the Ulverstone Showgrounds.

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

Competitors use .177 calibre pistols to fire lead pellets at targets 10 metres away.

The bulls-eye has a 10mm 10 ring, with the entire target being just 15cm across.

Air Pistols are either air or gas-powered, the trigger weight can be no lighter than 500 grams.  The width of the grip and length of the barrel are also limited.

Men shoot a 60 shot match plus sighters in one hour and 45 minutes.  Women and juniors shoot 40 shots and sighters in one hour and 15 minutes.

The course of fire for Air Pistol matches can be found in the North Western Pistol Club Induction Handbook.

Happy Shooting!!
