Sport facility

 

We ask for bring your weapons and ammunition. In Czechia we don't have any restriction with transport air weapons but we recommend to ask for official invitation to mail svec@ecsg2013.eu. Then you can't have any problem in the border.

Unfortunately in Prague we can't organize shooting so the competition will be in a modern shooting hall in Pilsen where shoot the best Czech shooters (Katerina Emmons - gold medal from Beijing, Adela Sykorova - bronze medal from London) or other shooters like Matthew Emmons. Pilsen is under one hour from Prague and participants will transport a special bus which is in participation fee. The final shooting will be in the hall which has electronic targets and boards for spectators. The competition will be according to regulations sports shooting. A random control is possible. We tolerate clothes which was used to in 2012 and before. The air and CO2 are in the shooting hall.
