Participants22 from 7 countries
Format25 metres. 30 shots. 300 possible.

The match au commandement was the forerunner of the rapid-fire pistol event. The shooters held the pistol at their side, as the range officer asked if they were ready. When they said, “Yes,” the range officer then counted out, “Fire, one, two, three.” The shooter was required to get the shot off before the count of three. In Athina the target was the silhouette of a human dressed in a frock-coat with the bulls-eye located in mid-thorax. The event was only contested at the Olympics in 1906. The title went to Greek shooter Konstantinos Skarlatos, who also competed at the 1912 Olympics, but this was his only Olympic medal. Skarlatos hit the most targets, 29 of 30, and was well ahead on score, 133 to 115 for second- and third-placed Swedes Hübner von Holst and Vilhelm Carlberg.
