ISSF Supported Rest Match Rules

Clubs are starting to take on the ISSF Supported Matches. if you feel your club could suit these matches you can download the rules and start.

Just in short as the picture shows it is the base of the grip/stock that rests on the support, no other support is allowed. even though there are 3 age categories we are sure most would be happy to be in the one category. Keeps people involved once bodies start to give up on us.

It is only for 10m Air Pistol and 50m Pistol - not for timed fire matches.

Take a good read and study it to see if it suits your members and club.
