Gallery rifle includes short- and medium-distance shooting events for rifles and pistols chambered in pistol-calibre cartridges. The international rule book comprises four main events: gallery rifle centrefire, gallery rifle smallbore, long barrelled revolver and long barrelled pistol. Gallery rifle centrefire, is the only event SSAA generally participates in. It is based around scoped and iron-sighted tubular magazine lever-action rifles in traditional pistol calibres, such as the .32-20, .38-.357, .44 and .45. Most GRCF events are shot at distances between 10 and 50m and mirror popular pistol competitions. Gallery Rifle matches require the competitor to load and shoot very quickly either at stationary paper or reactive steel targets.
