Air Gun Shooting
The air gun shooting competition will be the first in the history of the EuroGames, when Bavarian marksmen and women will be outing themselves alongside Bavarian folk dancers. And because Bavarian marksmanship is firmly rooted in tradition, we are particularly pleased that this competition has been invited to take place at the home of the Königlich Privilegierten Hauptschützengesellschaft (The Privileged Royal Society of Marksmen), established in 1406.
Requirements for Participants
The competition is open to everyone who can provide proof - for example, long-time active membership in a shooting club - of appropriate shooting experience.
Individuals compete in open class.
Athletes will be grouped according to age, depending on the number of competitors, with a minimum of five athletes per age group, but competitors can choose to compete either in open class or with their age group. EuroGames can provide guns.
An overlapping team competition will also take place. Teams usually consist of four to six members. The best three results from individual contestants will decide the winning team. All the winning team members will receive medals.
Participants have 40 shots (plus 5 practice shots) at a 10-part, 33mm target, from a distance of 10 meters.
There will not be any kind of ranking in the results.
EuroGames is holding this competition in the spirit of friendship. The usual rules at international shooting competitions, regarding fair play and doping, will apply.
