No - can see where a gunfighter would love it, though.

 

Think it would require traditional shooter's to have to slow down, especially on the transition to the second pistol, to keep from earning a P.

Popular at one range we shoot.   For sure to have it on two stages.  Odd/even and even/odd is what we call it.

I like “Cheyenne Sweep” for this one. I’m going to start pushing it locally and see what happens.

We've done versions of it, paint odd targets black and even targets red, makes it easier to keep  up with. "Cheyenne Sweep" it is;)

Yes, Odds & Evens... very old, very tired, well used, gunfighter sweep.  Fallen out of favor... especially with non-gunfighters.  Not fun for anyone when used for the rifle.

We call it the "Chatanooga Ladder Sweep".  Memphis Raines (gunfighter) came up with it.

I came up with one several years ago shooting 2 three target Nevada sweeps on a 5 target spread. Maybe it already existed and I just reinvented it, I dunno.

 

1-3-5-3-1 then 2-3-4-3-2

Howdy Cheyenne,

 

     Now you have 2 sweeps named after you! 

 

     "How cool is that!"

 

     The number 13 appears 3 times in this sweep!  I think I'll stay away from it!  :blink: :lol:

I wrote stages at THSS similar last October. 1-3-2-4-4 repeat. Also 2-4-1-3-3 repeat. I called it "odds and evens".

Hey, CC,

 

     A long time ago I found a sweep pattern listed online as "The Culpepper sweep".  

 

     It has 9 rounds on three targets:  1 - 2 - 2 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 2 - 2 - 1 .  I naturally assumed you had invented this sweep.  We've been using it for years.

 

     We shoot this sweep on 3 targets and the tenth round usually goes on a bonus target or a target off by itself.  It's easy to remember and also works well if a 9 round sweep is ever needed.

We shot this one yesterday at Pemi Valley with the tenth round on the last 1. It was called an "Abilene sweep"

I like that name better!  "Abilene sweep!"

 

Now I can call Cheyenne's dream gunfighter sweep the "Culpepper Sweep!"  :lol:

Yes I have shot that sweep at a Couple of Clubs ..

I like the "Ginger Rodgers" Sweep, 4 targets starting at either end , 4 on the first , 3 on the second ,  2 on the third ,  one on target 4....

And then sometimes we sweep the other row of targets ,  from the other end , 1 on target 1 , 2 on the second, 3 on the third and 4 on the last target,,, For old Larry...

We often give you a choice of which sweep you start on "Ginger" up close or Larry boy with da rifle ...

We call those "regressive" and "progressive" sweeps, respectively - and shoot them quite often.

 

Also do a 6-target progressive using revolvers & rifle that requires a reload.
