In 1986 the International Shooting Sport Federation introduced the ISSF World Cup. The latest edition of the ISSF World Cup is being held in Cairo.

New Format
In the new format, the top eight shooters are placed into twosemi-final groups, each with four challengers, after the qualification stage is completed.
The four athletes would each take ten single shots, with points granted grounded on their scores 4 for the loftiest, 3 for the second-highest, 2 for the second-lowest, and 1 for the lowest. The shooter with the lowest score would be excluded after ten shots, and the remaining shooters would shoot another five shots, with the shooter with the lowest score being eliminated after that.
The top two shooters from each of the two groups would also participate in a final with a scoring structure similar to that of thesemi-final. In the final after the bronze medal is given, the top 2 remaining face each other, and the first one to reach 16 points wins the gold.
The top eight shooters in the 25m pistol events are divided into twosemi-finals following qualification. After four sets of five- shot series, the shooter with the lowest score is eliminated. The shooter with the coming lowest score is excluded after another five- shot series. In the final, a similar method is followed until only two shooters remain. These two also face each other in a five- shot series, with the first shooter to reach 16 hits winning.
