ISSF Skeet

ISSF Skeet Layout
ISSF Skeet is the second Skeet Discipline shot in Australia, but the style is participated at World Cup and Olympic level. Like Skeet, the rounds are shot in brackets of twenty-five (25) targets, but from this point there is little similarity. For although the ground layouts are the same distance, the targets thrown are quite different in speed. Three other differences that become visible are gun position, time delay on target release and the sequence of target release. The gun is held in a down position where the toe of the stock must touch a mark on the hip until the target visually appears. This position is held from the command “Pull” until the targets appear, which is within a time delay of 0 seconds to 3 seconds. All these variations with the ISSF Skeet make for a higher degree of difficulty.

Procedure:
With each competitor on rotation, starting at Pad one (1) a single High target is shot. Then to complete pad one (1), a pair of targets are simultaneously released targets is taken (High shot first). Pad two (2) is shot in identical manner as was Pad one (1). Pad three (3) is then taken by shooting a single High target, followed by a single Low target. A pair of simultaneoulsly released targets is then taken to complete this pad (High first). Pad four (4) is shot in the identical manner. Pad five (5) is shot in the identical manner as pads three and four but in the pairs, Low is shot first. Pad six (6) is then taken by shooting a single Low target. A pair released simultaneously are then taken to complete the pad (Low first). Pad seven (7) is completed by shooting a pair released simultaneously (Low first). Pad eight (8) and final station is shot by taking a single Hightarget followed by a single Low, to record a bracket of twenty-five (25) targets. As in standard Skeet , only one (1) competitor occupies the shooting pad at any one time, with the same safety rules. ISSF Skeet is a constantly varying time release discipline coupled with changing angles. This, with the different gun hold position, tests the competitors ability to control, making it extremely challenging and exciting.
