SOME BACKGOUND ON PA and the ISSF PISTOL RULES

1.     the international controlling body for the ISSF Pistil events we conduct is the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF).  The ISSF controls the international rules for all the ISSF Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun and Running Target events   For pistols these events are 50m (Free) Pistol, l0m Air Pistol, 25m Rapid Fire Pistol, 26m Center Fire Pistol and 25m Womens (Sport) Pistol.

2.     Shooting Australia (i.e. Australian International Shooting Limited) is the (ONLY!) Member Body representing Australia with the ISSF

3.     Pistol Australia Inc. (PA) is the (ONLY!) Member Body of Shooting Australia representing Pistol events throughout Australia.

OK, that covers the hierarchy of the rules and authorities through to PA; the application gets a little trickier.

 

For Olympics, World Championships, World Cups and Regional Championships the full ISSF rules and regulations apply!

 

For ‘Australian’ competitions authorised by Shooting Australia, most of the ISSF rules and regulations apply – the  ‘exceptions’ relate to the organisational and constitutional rules and regulations: e.g. constitutional control, organisational bits and the appointment of Jury members.  While anti-doping and eligibility controls are not a stringent, the equipment and competition rules apply in full.
