USA Shooting Rules

USA Shooting rules will align with the current ISSF Rulebook. Please note that this rulebook is updated quite frequently, so it is worth checking for updates on the ISSF website:

Any rules which are modified or not enacted for a match will be posted as a Match Director's Bulletin.
