Air Pistol (ISSF)

Metro has a 13-bay air-conditioned air-pistol range.

Air pistol is a great way to learn precision and control with your shooting. It is one of the nominated ISSF sporting categories for competition. If you’ve developed a flinch from shooting larger calibres, get yourself down to the air pistol range and re-train your stance, breathing and trigger control.
