25 metre pistol
Women
Number of shots: 2x30 + 25 + dueling for medal series by series
Olympic Games: Since 1984
World Championships: Since 1966
Abbreviation: SP

25 metre pistol, formerly and unofficially still often known as sport pistol, is one of the ISSF shooting events. It was devised as a women's event in the 1960s, based upon the rules of 25 metre center-fire pistol but shot with a .22-caliber sport pistol instead of the larger-caliber guns men used. As with all ISSF pistol disciplines, all firing must be done with one hand, unsupported.

In 1984, female shooting competitions began in the Olympic Games, and so sport pistol made its way into the Olympic program. Internationally, it is still only shot by women and juniors, while men have center-fire pistol instead. However, in many countries, there are also male classes in 25 metre pistol on the national level and lower.

As 25 metre pistol is Olympic, it involves shooting a final, which the center-fire event does not. The top 8 contestants reach the final, which consists of four additional rapid-fire stage series of 5 shots each. The final score is added to the qualification score.
