Competition

  • Shooting competitors use air pistols and air rifles to fire a series of shots at a stationary, electronic target. Shooting categories are: air pistol, air rifle (standing), and air rifle (prone), all at a distance of 10 meters.

Classification

  • Athletes compete in different classification categories based on functional abilities including impaired muscle power/range of movement, limb deficiency and visual impairment.
  • Visually impaired shooters will compete in a separate classification than sighted shooters. VI shooters use electronic shooting. Adaptation: Air rifle is fitted with a special scope, which resembles a normal telescopic scope. The scope contains electronics which converts the amount of light it receives into a varying pitch tone.
