The event consisted of two rounds: a qualifier and a final. In the qualifier, each shooter fired 60 shots with a pistol at 25 metres distance. Scores for each shot were in increments of 1, with a maximum score of 10. Targets were presented in series of 5. Each shooter was presented with 12 series, and had a sharply limited time to complete each. Four of the series had to be completed in 8 seconds apiece, four more within 6 seconds, and four within 4 seconds.

The top 6 shooters in the qualifying round moved on to the final round, where they fired an additional 40 shots. They were presented in eight series of 5 shots each, with each series being limited to 4 seconds to make all five shots. After the 4th round, the competitor with the lowest score was eliminated for each round resulting in the top 2 fighting for gold in the last round. The total score from all 40 shots was used to determine final ranking.

The medals were presented by Austin Sealy, IOC member, Barbados and Franz Schreiber, Secretary General of the International Shooting Sport Federation.
