This competition came down to Paul Van Asbroeck and Jim Gorman, who would also post the highest individual scores in the team free pistol event, with Gorman besting Van Asbroeck in that event. Gorman was the last man to shoot but came in behind Van Asbroeck and his teammate, Réginald Storms. After the scores were announced, Gorman protested, claiming a double, noting that one of his bullets had gone through a previous hole. The protest was considered but disallowed the next day, and Van Asbroeck won the gold medal, Gorman the bronze.
