1. Introduction to Olympic Shooting
The rules used in Olympic Shooting competition are established by USA Shooting (USAS), the national governing body for the Olympic sport of shooting in the United States. These rules apply to shooting events and activities recognized by and or promoted by the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF), and rule changes made by ISSF will be adopted by USAS. USAS does in some cases recognize events not recognized by ISSF, thus USAS is the governing body for such events.Like any governing body, USAS has many, many rules. I have dug through them and will highlight the important ones general equipment guidelines, and methods of scoring. These ought to help anyone who wants better understand what youre likely to see at an Olympic shooting event. I have omitted tedious details such as restrictions on firearm size and weight.
2. Learn the basics
Regular street craps is played with two dice, which are used by a single player in each game, though the game can be played by any number of onlookers.Players will first roll the dice to determine who will roll for that particular game, and then all the participants will place bets on whether or not the person rolling will pass on the first roll (by rolling a 7 or 11), or crap out (by rolling a 2, 3, or a 12). If one of those values is reached on the first roll, the game is over and the bets are distributed accordingly.The player shooting the dice is the first to bet and the other players must at least match his bet before the game can continue. If the bet cannot be matched, the shooter can either lower the bet to accommodate the other players, or handicap the odds. Once the shooters bet has been matched, the other players may place side bets.
3. Learn the rules of the point
If the shooter neither passes nor craps out on the first roll, then the number rolled becomes the point. Now, the only two values that matter on the roll are that point value and 7. The player must continue rolling until either the point or 7 is reached. All bets that the shooter would pass are now bets that the shooter will re roll the value of the point before rolling a 7, and all bets to the contrary are bets that 7 will be rolled first.
If the game goes to point, as soon as the shooter rolls the point or 7, the game is over and the bets are awarded accordingly.
4. Learn the lingo
Youll make the learning curve a lot shorter if you dont have to ask for clarification every time someone says something about the come out or the point. Learn the basic vocab and youll be rolling soon enough
The shooter is the player who rolls the dice, and will be a different player for each game.
The come out is the initial roll.
To pass is to roll a 7 or 11 on the come out roll.
To crap is to roll a 2, 3, or 12 on the come out roll.
The point is any value between 4 and 10 rolled on the come out
To seven out is to roll a seven before rolling the point.
5. Learn the difference between street craps and casino craps
In casino craps, obviously, the biggest difference is that youve got an elaborate table on which to place bets, as well as a banker controlling both the money and the action, and James Bond lookalikes are wandering around ordering elaborate drinks. In street craps, the betting is less formalized, and youre probably rolling dice against a brick wall, though the principles of the game are basically the same.Because no one is watching the action, make sure that the piles stay even throughout the game and the tokens or money are distributed fairly. Tempers can flare if you dont take the game seriously and keep it clean.
