Formerly known as Free Pistol, the 50m Pistol event is shot at all levels of competition up to and including the Olympics and Paralympics using .22 calibre single-shot pistols.

In this event the pistol may only be loaded with one round of ammunition at a time and must be operated with only one hand, which cannot be supported in any way. There are practically no rules for the pistol itself, trigger pull weight may be as low as the competitor chooses, the grip may be designed in any way provided it does not give support beyond the wrist and there are no restrictions on size and weight of the pistol.

50m Pistol is described as the purest form of precision shooting amongst the pistol events and the match has undergone minimal rule changes over the past 75 years.
In Australia the event is also shot by women at most competitions.
