The International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) based in Munich controls shooting sports at the Olympic Games all the pistol events at the Commonwealth Games and the Oceanias. The main events are 10 and 50 meter pistol and 25 meter pistol events which require autoloaders or revolvers.
ISSF is different from all the other PNZ shooting disciplines for two reasons. First, only ISSF shooters compete at the Olympic and Commonwealth Games. Other disciplines have their internationals as well, but none of those events equal the status of the Olympics or the CWG. The second difference is that everything is done to emphasise the individual shooter and to minimise any technical or other advantages one person might have over another. Everything being equal and constant, the only variable is the shooter- and that person's skill, talent, motivation and determination.
