The Pistol Australia (PA) Service Pistol & Service Pistol Unrestricted events are two separate 90-shot events for centre-fire self-loading pistols or revolvers with a barrel length not exceeding 6″.

Both matches require the competitor to engage paper targets at 50, 25, 10 and 7 yards, both slow and rapid fire, and involve a range of shooting positions including prone, sitting, kneeling, firing from behind a barricade, freestanding, swapping hands and shooting unsighted. The Service match requires the competitors to draw from a holster (shooters must hold a PA holster accreditation card), whereas the unrestricted match is shot without a holster with each stage starting from the 45 degree ready position.

Each shooter utilises a bank of four PA Service Pistol targets mounted side by side.
