Coast Guard Expert Pistol Medal Miniature
Service: Coast Guard
Criteria: Attainment of the minimum qualifying score for the Expert level during prescribed shooting exercises
Devices: None on medal (but see the Coast Guard Pistol Marksmanship Ribbon)
The Coast Guard Expert Pistol Shot Medal was established to reward outstanding pistol marksmanship and to recognize the attainment of the minimum qualifying score for the Expert level during prescribed shooting exercises.
Although originally intended as a single, one class award, the concept was extended during the Vietnam War to provide for two additional levels of achievement with the creation of the Coast Guard Pistol Marksmanship Ribbon.
