Air Rifle

Air Rifle is also an Olympic event and is shot over a distance of 10 Metres, in the standing position.

Competitors fire a 60 shot men’s and a 40 shot women’s event over 10 metres using a .177 calibre target air rifle.  The events are shot in the standing position usually on an indoor range.  In international competition, there are separate events for men and women, although both genders regularly contest the same events in Australia.
