The International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) has a range of matches with something that will suit everyone. The ISSF presides over multiple disciplines having its origins steeped at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games, along with International Championships. This discipline is an excellent beginning to hone one’s pistol shooting skills.
A range of pistols are used in ISSF disciplines. SSPC ACT compete in 25 metre Standard Pistol, 25 metre Centre Fire Pistol, 25 metre Rapid Fire Pistol, 10 metre Air Pistol and 50 metre Pistol.
SSPC ACT ISSF has also adopted and tailored a match for our experienced (Senior Members) shooters. This match is shot over half the distance with half the rounds. This is not just for experienced members – if you are new to shooting this is where you will develop a firm foundation upon which you can become a competition shooter at the highest levels. Contact the Seniors Match Coordinator for further details.
