What is a Hoot Sweep

Had a great time shooting the hoot sweep today with the Gold Coast Gunslingers. It is really a hoot and involves a 5 target array.

Smokestack's description is a 4 target array... what is the shooting order on 5 targets?

If your shooting it with Hoot you have to cover your mustache with both hands as the starting position....... I'm not tellin why!

Slim, you started something at Ohio. Ever since, I get no respect at all

hOOt

PS: Smokestack, you are correct on the shooting pattern

The way we shot it yesterday was first pistol double tap outside, three singles across targets 2, 3, 4 of the 5 targets. second pistol start on target 2, singles across targets 2, 3, 4 and double tap target 5. When you end you have put two rounds on each target, double tapping the outside targets. I don't know if it is gunfighter friendly. For me it was very enjoyable.

 

I am sure the sweep must be well known by a different name, but I can't recall shooting it before. It is very elegant if you think about it. It would appear to be very fast for a five target array. The match director slowed down the stage a tad by having us shoot 6 shotgun targets.

I could tell you, but if I did I would be banned from the wire.

Slim's comment is the part that will get banned from the Wire.

Remember ... what happens at Ohio State stays at Ohio State. Tryin' to save your reputation hOOt.

That would be a Rattler John sweep.
