USA SHOOTING is now running under ISSF rules. <download>
USA Shooting Bulletin #1: <download>
1) In the new ISSF Rulebook there is a restriction against using 140mm buttstock on rifles . This rule will be exempted at the Junior Olympic level until further notice.
2)For the State Junior Olympic matches we will be recording all scores
in INTEGER format. Not all ranges are able to accurately do decimal
scoring at this time so in order to keep everything on a level playing
field we will use INTEGER for all State Junior Olympic Host Sites
3) For the Junior Olympic Program we will be exempting the ISSF rule
regarding the seam underneath the elbow. This will be allowable as
many of our clubs use jackets of this nature. This rule was also
exempted during the last quad.
4) The recent ISSF rules call for a boot flexibility test that many clubs may not have access to. Although USAS would encourage you to do this for your competitors if you can, we will exempt this rule from the STATE Junior Olympic Match. As we approach National Junior Olympics USAS will clarify to all competitors what rules will and will not be enforced.
5) All other ISSF Rule updates, including the new allowances on buttplate and forend depth, will be in effect for the 2017/2018 State and National Junior Olympics with the inclusion of blinders and corrective lenses.
------ A) Blinders – Rifle and pistol athletes can use one front blinder (30 mm maximum width) but may no longer wear side blinders.
B) Corrective Optics - Rifle athletes will be allowed to place a single corrective lens in or on their rear sights.
6) For Air Pistol and Air Rifle, Men and Women will now shoot the same
number of shots (60).
