Pistol (PAP & PPC)

 
Both Pistol disciplines (PAP and PPC) are being organized at the Royal Sharpshooters Association Rotterdam (K.S.V.R.), where Biathlon and Rifle are also being held. The membership figures of this sport are not allowed to be published publicly in the Netherlands, but despite the fact that the sport is subject to strict rules, there are quite a number of members. Legal possession of firearms in the Netherlands is very limited; only members of a shooting club who do not have a criminal record and who participate in competitions can apply for a permit. People may have a maximum of five firearms.
