“Only 10M rifle and pistol.”

^For air rifle.  There is a 3-position rifle event and a prone rifle event, both 50m, but using 22 LR.

And trap (US took women’s bronze!), and skeet, and doubles trap, but those use those funny un-rifled guns.  Oh, and archery, the men’s team took silver.

Of the 3 above medal rounds, they showed the poorest coverage (only the final targets) for the 10m rifle, which was damn disappointing.  I’ve seen past broadcasts that gave very good coverage and commentary of the medal round, it’s actually very interesting to watch.
