No additional equipment, electrontic or other, may be used to assist the shooter in evaluating the wind or other weather conditions.
Any type of clothing, glove or footwear is allowed provided it is not a hazard to the shooter or others.
Clothing may be padded to reduce the pressure of the rifle stock resting on the arm or knee.
Separate pads may be worn over non-padded clothing.
Gloves may not contain any rigid material extending beyond the wrist.
The maximum height for any form of seating is 150 mm (6”) when flattened between 2 boards

A kneeling roll must be provided by the organization (cone design under test).
A shooter may use their personal Kneeling roll during the Kneeling position.
Shape: roll design
Diameter: 180mm (max)
Shooting without any kind of knee support is also allowed.
The bean bag (seat) cannot be used in the kneeling position.
For field target shooting events a suitable field/forest terrain should be identified and prepared.
For the annual World Field Target Championship event this terrain should ideally allow for three courses of 25 lanes each with 2 targets to be erected per lane (total of 50 targets per course).
Lanes of these three courses must alternate (e.g. red/white/black course) along the terrain.
The course shall consist of 150 targets over 3 days. In cases of force majeure other options maybe agreed between team captains.
Lanes in a World Field target Championship must contain 2 targets.
Crossed targets are considered to be part of the Field Target Sport.
Targets face plate & paddle must be 100% visible from all shooting positions; standing, kneeling, sitting.
Any obstruction should be removed by a Marshal prior to the first shooter shooting that lane otherwise the obstruction must remain for the duration of the competition.
No lane firing area should result in a dangerous stance having to be adopted by the shooter i.e. excessively steep, slippery, etc.
Targets are addressed in numerical sequence i.e. 23,24,25,26, etc…
Shooters shall be timed 2 targets = 3mins
Every shooter is charged with leaving each lane firing area in a safe and tidy condition for the following shooters.
Metal silhouette “fall when hit” with a face plate with hole and paddle behind that are resettable from the firing point shall be used.
The hit zones shall be circular and of a contrasting colour to the faceplate.
The use of simulated hit zones on any other part of the faceplate is prohibited.
Standard hit zones shall be 40 mm in diameter.
A limited number of targets may be fitted with reduced diameter hit zones of 15 mm or 25 mm.
These reducers shall be painted the same colour as the faceplate.
Reducers must be fitted on the outside of the faceplate, facing the shooter (not inside).
Targets shall be painted every day before starting a new round/competition.
In the World Field Target Championship the allowed target colours are:
Yellow faceplates with black hit-zones, or
Black faceplates with yellow hit-zones, or
White faceplates with black hit-zones, or
Black faceplates with white hit-zones
Target placement and numbering
Targets shall be placed at distances of between 9 metres and 50 metres from the firing line and according with the following table.
Targets (Max distance)
All targets shall be clearly numbered (per course from left to right) at the target and the firing line.
Targets may be placed at higher or lower elevation to the firing line, but must at all times be fully visible from all shooting positions and the target faceplate must face the shooter at a 90° angle (plus or minus 5° - Horizontal level).
The target distance can be obtained from the nearest lane pole in a straight line from the pole lane to the target.
Before starting the championship a country representative (RGB, team captain or a designated shooter) may validate the circuit and request to double check a target distance.
As soon the championship starts any target outside the valid distances (including positional targets) will be considered as valid provided the target distance does not exceed 50 metres distance and not less than 9 metres.
During competition if a shooter considers a target is above 50 metres or less than 9 metres, the shooter may decide between shooting the target and presenting a protest to a Marshal.
If the decision is to shoot the target the result will be register and the shooter loses the possibility of presenting a protest.
If the decision is to protest that information will be register in the score card and at the end of the competition the target in question will be measured by a Marshall to check the distance. If the target is inside the official measures (between 9-50 metres) a miss "0" will be register in the shooter's score card. If the target is outside the legal measures the target will be removed from competition and an "X" registers to everyone.
Reduced diameter hit zones
The total number of targets with reduced diameter hit zones may not exceed 25% (12 targets) of the total targets on a 50 target course.
The basic/free shooting position is sitting, but some lanes may be designated as ‘standing’ or ‘kneeling’.
The total number of targets designated as standing or kneeling may not exceed 20% of the total number of targets on that particular course, e.g. 10 targets (5 lanes) on a 50 target course.
2.8.3 These positional targets should be divided as equally as possible, e.g. 3 standing and 2 kneeling lanes or vice versa.
The maximum distance that positional targets may be placed at is 40 metres.
Targets (Max distance)
A clear sign at the firing line shall indicate kneeling or standing lanes (recommend between lane poles).
Practice/sighting in range
A safe practise area shall be provided for the shooters at least one day before the World Field Target Championship event.
The practise area should be in close proximity to the competition range.
Multiple paper targets should be placed at the different competition distances between 9 and 50 metres.
As a minimum, paper targets must be placed at 9 metres and every 5 metres from 10 to 50 metres and the target distance written on each paper target distance.
As a minimum, paper targets must be replaced at least once a day.
The range should be large enough to accommodate all shooters.
Compressed air should be available for shooters and a Deputy Marshal shall be present whenever this range is open for practise.
All the range safety rules will apply.
On each competition day a short practise period may be applied (e.g. one-two hours).
Each shooter should have the opportunity to practice for a minimum of 15 minutes on each competition day.
The shooting line/position is indicated by a clear line on the ground or two posts between which shooters must shoot from.
The gates must be posts and cannot be trees or other objects.
The minimum distance between lane poles is 1 metre.
The minimum distance between two (2) Shooting lanes is three (3) metres.
When shooting, the barrel of a rifle must be in front of this line, but the trigger must remain behind it.
The signs' colour must be easily associated with the targets by having similar colour between the target faceplate and the sign.
Note: A document template with the signage is available in WFTF website for download.
As is the case in all shooting sports, safety on the range is of the utmost importance.
All shooters, RGB affiliated or otherwise, must have competed in or marshalled a domestic RGB held event, from which an understanding of range safety, timing and scorecard marking is obtained.
No rifle may at any time be pointed in the direction of people or animals.
Unless in the act of shooting all rifles must be unloaded. Rifles must face down range when loaded.
When a ceasefire is signalled (one whistle/horn) a loaded rifle must be discharged safely downrange into the ground.
When carrying a rifle it should be pointed down, unless in a closed case or bag. If carried in an open rifle carrier, the cocking lever/bolt shall at all times be in the open position.
Non-participants are not allowed on the shooting line.
No children or pets are allowed on ranges during a competition, unless accompanied by and under control of a responsible adult.
No alcohol or drugs may be consumed before or during a day’s competition until the last shot had been fired. This excludes prescribed medication.
Entries for Worlds are normally invited shortly after conclusion of the previous year’s event.
A web site is usually opened by the host organisation on which a log of entries received (plus other relevant information) is reflected.
The number of available places in a championship is limited so the registrations process has the following priority:
RGB Team members (8 PCP + 6 Springer)
RGB members (Individual Shooters)
Guests (Individual Shooters without an RGB affiliation)
Inscriptions should be made via the RGB/RGB Representative or with the approval of the RGB and according to the rules/procedures defined by each country including a RGB membership if it exists.
In case of available places, Individual inscriptions with a RGB to support or approve the registration may be accepted. Guests (Shooters without a RGB filiation) may also be accepted.
Since the World Championship is for WFTF RGBs and its members the final result of Guest shooters without a RGB filiation will not be considered.
Names of each NGB team members are to be delivered to the organizing committee by a minimum of 24 hours prior to shooting. All teams and names are to be posted for view by all shooters prior to championship commencement.
The world field target championship entry fee includes the “Registration fee (with Air supply, medical services)” and “Ceremony Dinner”. All the other additional services are optional.
Categories for the World Championships are PCP and Springer (both limited to 12 ft/lbs or 16.3 joule).
Classes of entry
Classes of entry for the World Field Target Championship are as follows:
Junior (not yet 17 on 1st of January)
Overall (MAIN competition - includes juniors, men, ladies and veterans)
Veteran (60 years or older on 1st of January)
In PCP category NATIONAL TEAMS consisting of a minimum of 4 (four) and maximum of 8 (eight) shooters can be entered.
In SPRINGER category NATIONAL TEAMS consisting of a minimum of 3 (Three) and maximum of 6 (Six) shooters can be entered.
A minimum of 4 (four) teams in any category is required to constitute a competition at Worlds.
Team scores will be derived from the top 4, 5 or 6 scores (determined by the team entered with the smallest number of shooters) per 50 target match, added together at the end of the event.
Teams at Worlds must be entered 24 hours before commencement of the first day of competition, and the organisers must post all teams on a notice board at the range.
Each senior/sole RGB is entitled to enter one team only per category in the following categories (Overall Springer / Overall PCP). The “Overall PCP” can include Springer shooters in the team.
Grouping Top Shooters
Rule 1 – Select WFTF podium shooters (1st, 2nd & 3rd from last 7 years);
Rule 2 – Each RGB identifies 1 TOP shooter (National Champion, best performer of the moment, etc…);
Rule 3 – Select shooters between 4th to 15th of the last 5 world championship competitions;
Rule 4 – Select shooters between 16th to 20th of the last 5 world championship competitions;
Rule 5 – Each RGB identifies 1 TOP shooter (National Champion, best performer of the moment, etc…);
Rule 6 – Select shooters between 21th to 25th of the last 5 world championship competitions;
Note: The selection should be made sequentially from the most recent world championship to the oldest until all places are filled
Shooters grouped together on a shooting lane should ideally not consist of members from the same country/area/club.
In events spanning over more than one match, the shooters per lane for subsequent matches may be grouped according to accumulated score ranking.
Where there are multiple ranges used, each shooter must shoot on every range once.
Score cards indicating the shooters’ names and starting lane, timers and pens must be available (per shooting lane) and handed to all participants before each match commences.
There must be enough Deputy Marshals to cover the complete range within view of each other, and they shall be supplied with identifying vests, effective two way communication equipment and whistles/horns.
The minimum number of Marshals in a WFTF competition (150 targets) is seven (7) Marshals. This makes one (1) Chief Marshal and 6 (six) Deputy Marshals (two Deputy Marshals for each 50 target course).
All Marshals shall be well versed in shooting safety, FT rules and especially the understanding and handling of field target failures.
Wherever possible, they should also be able to speak and understand English.
Shooters that cannot, for whatever PHYSICAL OR MEDICAL REASON, comply with a particular shooting position, shall inform the Chief Marshal 24 hour before commencement of a match, and obtain permission to use an alternative position or aid, providing that no unfair advantage is gained.
All Marshals shall be made aware of such arrangement.
The allowed alternative positions are:
Alternative to Kneeling Position is standing.
Alternative to Standing Position is not available (each target counts as a missed target)
Emergency services in the form of an ambulance or qualified first aid staff must be present on the range during all World Championship events.
Each shooter is responsible for his/her own personal accident insurance. In addition to this the host organisation (in countries where this is permitted) shall take out event insurance at World Championship and international events.
A copy of these Rules shall be kept on the range during matches, and accessible to all present.
A full course of fire at Worlds consists of 50 targets per day over 3 days.
A full course of fire must be completed for a score to be deemed valid excepting for circumstances listed below under paragraph 5.11 ('Leaving the firing line').
At least 1 practise day before commencement of the Worlds competition must be provided.
Rifle power validation (Chronograph)
During training day (1 day before starting the competition):
It is mandatory that on the training day there is a power validation test to be done before commencement of the competition.
During the training day, the velocity test/configuration can be made in any number of trials without penalties/warning/etc….
All rifles shall be chronographed daily.
At first test rifles that exceed the 12 ft. lbs or 16.3 joules limit, may be adjusted for a re-test before the match starts.
The Marshal shall personally load each pellet, ensuring that it is not deformed or damaged.
Tests on subsequent days may be done at any point along the course as determined by the Chief Marshal.
If a shooter fails a test, then the test must be repeated. A maximum of 3 readable shots may be made.
Any failure at these subsequent tests will lead to disqualification from that day’s result.
Each time a unique sticker shall be attached to every rifle that has passed the test and the chronograph speed recorded is noted on a master sheet.
The velocity test result is recorded in the score card by the Deputy Marshal in charge and a signature/control sticker/stamp included.
Start / Course Re-Open procedure
A match starts/course re-opens with the sounding of two whistles/horns by the Deputy Marshals.
Any timers that had been stopped for each target left to be shooting the shooter will have one minute for preparation plus one minute per target on a lane.
A course (or section thereof) is closed when a single whistle/horn is sounded.
All timers are immediately stopped and any loaded rifles are fired into the ground in front of the shooters and across the firing line.
A visual sign should be made by each squad by raising their hand. By raising their hand, the squad is giving a clear sign of permission to the Marshall to go ahead and enter in the competition area.
No shooter may move towards a target (unless requested by a Deputy Marshall to do so), range-find a target, or do any other preparation until the range is re-opened.
Shooters are allowed 3 minutes in each lane. 1 minute for preparation plus 2 minutes for 2 targets.
Timing starts when the shooter sits down/kneels or brings the scope to his/her eye for ranging in the standing position.
Looking through the scope, Range finding, loading of rifle, checking of the wind are all part of the timing process.
The shooter may change the configurations of the hamster and butt hook while waiting for his turn.
Targets are addressed in number sequence.
If an incorrect target is shot at, the shooter scores a ‘0’ and continues with the following target on their score card.
Example: if a shooter on lane 1, shoots target 2 first and drops the target- the wrong one. The shooter will have a “0” on target 1 and will have to reset target 2 and shoot it again.
No extra support can be used during the range finding period (includes tree poles, lane poles, tripod, etc…)
Scoring & score cards
A score is indicated on the score card by an X for a knock down or a 0 if the target remains standing.
Only shooters grouped together on a lane or a Deputy Marshal may handle score cards.
Any changes to a score card shall be counter signed by a Deputy Marshal.
As soon as a match is completed, all score cards, duly completed and signed by all of the squad the shooter and scorer, must immediately be returned to the registration officials.
Score card correction
Any corrections made in a score card needs to be confirmed / validated by a Marshall.
Any corrections made in a score card without the validation by a Marshall may lead the target being scored as a miss "0".
Any disputed target must be challenged immediately after a shot is fired.
Under no circumstances should the shooter touch the reset cord until the dispute has been resolved.
Targets should be checked by the Deputy Marshal whose decision is final.
Marshal procedures to validate a target dispute.
The first thing to do is a visual check-up.
Make sure the shooter hasn’t touched the reset string.
Check that the reset string isn’t stuck or in tension preventing the target to fall.
Check that the target inclination is appropriate.
Check that there isn’t anything in the surroundings of the target that prevents the target to work correctly (bush, tree, branch etc.).
If the dispute is at the beginning of a session, validate splits;
After passing all of the visual checks, the target will be tested at least 3 times in different kill zone target areas (ex. top, middle and bottom) using the Official WFTF target checking device by a marshal trained and certified in its use.
If no issue is identified, the shooter will have a zero (miss).
If a target is found to be faulty, the target should be repaired or replaced immediately by a target with similar kill-zone size and will be re-shot by only the shooter who had challenged the shot.
If a target is found to be faulty and there’s no replacement target, all shooters will be awarded with that point regardless of whether they have already shot the target or not, and it must remain removed for the remainder of the competition.
Number of replacement targets an organization must have as a backup (in each 50 target course):
Leaving the line of fire
Shooters may only leave the firing line under the following circumstances:
Voluntary abandonment of the shoot, in which case the score up to that point will be accepted as a valid result;
To repair equipment that has been rendered unsafe or is incapable of firing a shot by whatever means. This excludes zero-shift of optical equipment or poorly zeroed systems. The shooter may replace the offending part or equipment with the permission of the Deputy Marshal. No visit to the sighting-in range by the shooter or any person on his/her behalf is allowed;
For any other occurrence deemed valid by the Deputy Marshal.
In all the above cases the shooter’s score card must be handed to the Deputy Marshal and the latter’s permission obtained to leave the firing line, with a stipulated time of 5 minutes for return. The time of departure and intended return will be recorded on the score card and any card not claimed within the designated return time will be submitted as final score for that match.
The final results of the championship will be determined by the sum of the total hits obtained by each shooter on each competition day, minus the awarded penalty points.
The warnings will be used to order the classifications.
The top 10 places in each class (Overall) cannot have tied scores.
In the event of tied scores for award winning positions, final placements shall be decided by a shoot-off.
For each tied score (per category) similar lanes containing 2 target within positional shooting parameters (standing/kneeling) is prepared for each shooter, and shooters with tied scores will shoot off simultaneously as follows:
1 round by each tied shooter from the sitting/free position;
If undecided, 1 round by each remaining shooter from the kneeling position;
If still undecided, 1 round by each shooter from the standing position;
If still undecided, shooters continue shooting rounds from the standing position until all awards placements have been determined.
The time defined for each round in a tied score is 3 minutes (1 minute preparation plus 1 minute per target).
The result, for each shooter in each round is obtained summing the total of hits 'X' in 2 targets.
Late arrivals - shooters
It is the responsibility of the shooter to arrive on time to the competition and according to the organization schedule.
Any shooter that does not follow these requirements (including arriving on time to the shooting lane before the competition starts) will not be able to shoot on each day in the World Championship.
The Chief Marshal may allow the shooter to enter in competition in very special justified cases and as long it doesn't delay the competition.
Unsafe practice / cheating
Unacceptable firing line conduct will not be tolerated. Coaching or barracking of a shooter in competition is prohibited. Rifles will NOT be shared on the firing line.
The penalty for an unsafe practice or any form of cheating is disqualification, with the organisers reserving the right to take further action.
Procedures to protest
Any protest must be made to the chief Marshal until the end of each competition day (max. 30 minutes after the end of the competition).
Any protest not made in the same day of the competition will not be considered.
The protest will be analysed /decided and the answer will be given on the same day.
The Chief Marshal's decision will be final.
The written protest shall be made using the template which is available on the WFTF website and on the reception desk.
Shooters are not allowed to smoke during the World Field Target Championship (As soon the Marshall blows the whistle until the end of the competition). Electronic cigarettes and vaporizers included.
Prizes for winners
During a World Field target Championship Medals will be distributed to the winners and according with classes described in the WFTF Constitution Rules.
Field target master title
A public recognition will be made by WFTF to all shooters who achieve a score greater than 92,5% of the highest score in their category (PCP / Spring Piston).
The recognition will be made during the World Field Target Championship Ceremony.
The recognition will be given only one time per shooter and per class.
Service to the sport award
A public recognition may be given to someone who has contributed greatly to improve Field Target sport.
Each RGB will nominate a person to be voted.
The voting will end once a person has been selected by more than 50% of the RGB's total votes.
The recognition will be made during the World Field Target Championship Ceremony.
The nomination cannot be made to the WFTF President.
Types of measures
The available disciplinary measures in WFTF are:
A verbal warning is a polite voice instruction with the objective of informing or alerting a shooter about something, making sure the shooter is adhering to the WFTF rules. The warning should be instructive, clear and help everyone to understand what is wrong or not. A verbal warning can be made by a Marshall or Squad team shooters.
A warning penalty during a competition is more serious since it will be register on the shooter’s score card.
The point penalties represent an action of attributing negative points to a shooter.
The negative points will be used to reduce the shooter’s final score.
A decision of attributing a Penalty directly without passing the Warning phase is a decision of the pre-selected multi-national jury.
Only a multi-national jury is able to attribute negative points and for the cases not defined they can be one (1) or two (2) points.
The disqualification is the highest penalty level in the WFTF and represents the act of stopping a shooter from continuing in the competition immediately.
Only the Multi-Nationality Jury is entitled to disqualify a shooter except if the reason is related with any matter under the defined rules “7.4.3.-Disqualification”.
In this case the Chief Marshall may disqualify a shooter immediately.
A multi-national jury of five (5) members will be constituted for each world championship.
The multi-national jury will include the Chief-Marshal of the competition and four (4) people proposed by the marshalling committee.
The multi-national jury proposed by the Marshalling Committee need the approval of the WFTF President.
The powers of the Multi-National Jury are to decide about Penalties and to decide on areas not defined in the rules.
Note: It is not possible to have every single possibility written down so the Multi-National jury panel should have power to decide on grey areas.
During the three (3) days of competition a list of all warnings will be collected every day.
As soon as a shooter gets three (3) warnings a pre-selected multi-national jury of five (5) members will analyse the gravity of the warnings and will decide whether any penalty points are to be awarded to the shooter.
This section defines the known cases and the penalties associated. All cases not described in this section will be decided on the moment by the Chief Marshall or Pre-Selected Multi-Nationality Marshall team.
Not adhering to a Marshal instruction
Not timing a shooter (all team will have 1 warning)
Entering in the shooting area while competition is stopped
When shooting the muzzle must be in front of the line and the trigger must remain behind it

Point Penalty ( -1 or -2 points )
Firing a shot into the ground without requesting permission of the shooting partner (Target miss)
Rifle Accessory not allowed
Range finding with artificial or natural support
Seat height above limit
For every shooter that doesn’t follow the safety procedures potentially putting other people at risk will be disqualified from the competition
Cheating, Inappropriate behaviour, not being on time, use of drug(s), alcohol
Pellet velocity above limit (disqualification on that day’s result)
Not Chronographing the air rifle when requested
Important (under rule 7.4.3): Depending on the seriousness of the offence it may be appropriate to give a warning initially before disqualification, but all breaches in safety rules should be taken very seriously.
A support that is affixed to the underside of the rifle stock and rests on the shooter’s hand or knee, depending on the shooting position. The bottom surface of hamster can be in any shape or form.
Pre-charged pneumatic air rifle.
Representative Governing Body, the organisation that represents a member country at the WFTF.

A shooting position where there shall be only 3 points of contact with the ground (2 feet and 1 knee).
A kneeling roll may be used to support the rear foot and/or ankle only.
The Rear Foot, when viewed from the rear should be vertical in appearance. No other part of the body may enter in contact with the kneeling role.
The Rear Foot is allowed to be angled so the ankle joint can be closer or further from the ground as desired. The toes can be bent or flat.
If a kneeling roll is not present underneath the ankle joint, the ankle joint must not be in contact with the ground or appear to be in contact with the ground.
The rear foot must be visible to the marshal at all times.
The leading hand will support the rifle and from the wrist forward be unsupported by the knee.

One rifle sling and/or butt hook may be used to steady the aim.
A shooting position where the shot is taken in a standing position without the aid of any support;
There shall be only 2 points of contact (2 feet with the ground);
The lead hand needs to support the rifle using the rifle fore-end or hamster;
A single rifle sling and/or butt hook may be used to steady the aim.
The shooter may use any shooting position that is safe and comfortable to the shooter. No other means of support, other than the shooter, shall be used for the rifle or body. The rifle cannot contact the ground. No body straps are allowed.
(which may be used in the “Free” position) The Shooter lays face down. The shooter’s forearm, from elbow to fingertips must be clear of any artificial or natural support. However, a sling as described in rule may be in contact with the shooter’s forearm in order to help steady their arm.

Definition of a 'Shot'
A shot is deemed to have been fired if air is discharged from a rifle. A shooter may however fire a shot into the ground after declaring this to his/her lane partners.
The act of providing information about wind, target distances.
ANNEXURE – A
Table with the maximum Pellet Velocity allowed based on the pellet weight:
Important: For pellets with a weight in grams between two (2) values in the table, for example 0.547 grams, use the lighter value of the table pellet weight to determine the maximum allowed velocity. In this example (0.547) use the velocity of the weight 0.544 grams – 802.0 fps or 244.4mps
PDF version isn't available at the moment
We're working hard to provide a downloadable version of the documents on this site, but we're not quite there yet unfortunately.
If you would like to link to the WFTF rules from your own website, please link to this page rather than downloading a copy of the rules in PDF format.
This will really help, so that when the rules are updated there aren't dozens of out of date copies of the rules scattered all over the internet.
