Does the US compete in Men's 25m Center fire, 25m standard pistol in the below matches? Trying to figure it out but looks like no scores for those matches really in the past few years anyways.

World Shooting Championships, World Cups, Pan American Games

Of the ones you numbered, only the World Championships (every four years) hold matches in Men's CF and Standard Pistol.

World Cups were always intended solely for Olympic events, and so are the Pan American Games since 1995, the last which held the full ISSF program.

I think '95 (maybe '99) was the last time for CF/STD at the Pan Am Games. Wikipedia should know. Definitely not in '03.

John, I was an assistant judge at the '95 PAG, they were hel in my country, and I remember that including the ISSF full program was more a publicity stunt from tha National federation than a practical move, just out of National pride and most possibly to earn some more medals, as the CFP and 300 Rifle went to Argentinians.

Four years later at Indianapolis all events but the Olympics were gone...............
