Rifle / Pistol Equipment

Equipment Control will be conducted according to ISSF Rules using approved, calibrated instruments. Pre-competition testing is not mandatory, however, athletes are responsible for competing with legal equipment and clothing. All athletes are urged to submit any doubtful equipment and clothing to Equipment Control for checking before the competition. All athletes are subject to being selected for random post-competition testing and will be disqualified if their equipment or clothing is not legal according to ISSF Rules.

Rifle Clothing

All rifle athletes must have ISSF seals with serial numbers on their jackets and trousers. Any rifle jackets or trousers that do not have ISSF seals must be submitted to Equipment Control for inspection and the affixing of a seal before the athlete’s first competition. Jackets and trousers that were previously inspected and have an ISSF seal continue to be valid except that athletes with more than one jacket or trousers must report to Equipment Control before their first competition to confirm which jacket and which trousers they will use. All other seal numbers for that athlete will be cancelled. Athletes that wish to replace a registered jacket or trousers with a new clothing item must bring that item to Equipment Control for inspection and a new seal. Previous seals will then be cancelled. Rifle athletes can have only one active jacket and trousers at any time.

Rifle Clothing Post-Competition Stiffness Testing

If one panel of a rifle jacket or trousers tests 2.9 or lower, the stiffness device must be recalibrated and the panel must be retested. If it fails again, but all other panels pass, the athlete will not be disqualified, but a written warning must be given to the athlete and the ISSF seal must be cut off. The athlete can continue using this clothing for that day in that event. If two or more panels fail, the athlete must be disqualified (DSQ).

Air or CO2 Cylinders

It is the athlete’s responsibility to ensure that any air or CO2 cylinder is still within its validity date. This may be checked by Equipment Control.

Shotgun Equipment

All skeet athletes must have ISSF seals with serial numbers on their marker tapes. Any shooting vests that do not have ISSF seals on the marker tapes must be submitted to Equipment Control for inspection and the affixing of a seal before the competition. Equipment Control will be conducted according to ISSF Rules using approved, calibrated instruments. Pre-competition testing is not mandatory, however, athletes are responsible for competing with legal equipment and clothing. All athletes are urged to submit any doubtful equipment and clothing to Equipment Control or the Shotgun Jury for checking before the competition. All athletes are subject to being selected for random testing during the competition. Athletes found to be in violation of the rules for guns or skeet marker tapes will be disqualified.

Shotgun Cartridge Controls

During Qualification, athletes whose cartridges are to be tested are selected by a computer draw. Between 10% and 18% of the athletes participating in an event will be selected for cartridge testing. Two (2) plus four (4) cartridges will be selected from each athlete and placed in separate labeled envelopes. The two (2) cartridges must be tested, first. If both cartridges weigh 24.50 g or below, no further action will be taken. If one (1) or both cartridges weigh more than 24.50g, then the four (4) cartridges in the second envelope must be tested. If the average of the six (6) cartridges weigh more than 24.50 g, then the athlete must be disqualified (DSQ).
During Finals, all six (6) finalists must be tested using the same procedure. The Finalists or their Coaches/Officials must bring, as early as possible, but not later than 30 minutes before the scheduled start of the Final (Reporting Time), all the cartridges that will be used during the Finals and place them in separate Cartridge Control Boxes on the Finals field of play. The Finalists must report at least 15 minutes before the start of the Final. The Equipment Control Jury will take the necessary samples from the boxes, and the boxes will be sealed. The boxes must be left under the supervision of Equipment Control Jury Member on the FOP. Once ammunition is placed in the box and sealed, only the Equipment Control Jury or the Finalist can remove ammunition from the box. No additional cartridges may be brought to a Finalist during Finals. All cartridge controls must be completed before the start of the Presentation of the Finalists. Any disqualified (DSQ) athlete will not be allowed to participate in the Final (There will be no elimination for 6th place; the first elimination will be for 5th place).
