No. Competitors in sporter air rifle can shoot in a sweatshirt, regular pants and comfortable footwear. Sporter air rifles are characterized by their light weight (5-7 lbs.), low cost (they vary from $180 to $500 in cost), basic target features (adjustable sights, adjustable length stocks, adjustable sling attachments) and suitable accuracy (rifles sold through the CMP sales program must be capable of consistently shooting tens on standard competition targets).
