Sport Pistol Is Now Olympic Pistol

A few days after creating this blog, I started having doubts about its name. I had originally called it Sport Pistol to highlight the sport part of the sport of pistol shooting, hoping that it would encompass all the disciplines I’m interested in. I then noticed that this was also the name of a single discipline and that it could be confusing.

With a lot of good domains that would have fit the philosophy of this site already taken, I’ve settled for Olympic Pistol. It does not encompass all the disciplines I like- it is namely missing free pistol- but I think it is generic enough to understand that we are talking about precision and rapid fire disciplines, mostly ISSF.

Thanks to Nikki Holmes for helping me solve my English shooting language issue!
