Shooting Bull

How can you shoot this?

Than you don't agree with my statement... Okay.

You didn't read my quote of Shooting Bull where I said I do...?  T'was literally, the post right above the one you quoted...  And the very reason I made a couple of written suggestions to avoid future confusion.

Howdy Bull and Griff.

 

I can see exactly what you both mean.   But, I don't see the word 'THEN' in the original thread that started this 

discussion.

 

I think my recent post using the method I listed would fit the requirements of those instructions.

BUT, I agree that once the word 'THEN' is interjected, my listed method would no longer be valid.

 

I also like Phantoms latest post.   And I like my definition because it now gives even greater creativity to

the shooter..... :D

 

Y'all have a good evening.    I think I'm gonna work on some 3D plans for a few new 97's..... :lol:

Widder,

 

I may have to retract my earlier assessment.  As one of the uses of the comma is to replace the "and" in a sentence when two things of equal importance are listed and make sense in either order...  However, don't most folks usually place more import on the first in reading the list.  i.e., the first thing listed needs to be accomplished first?  As I said in my post at the top of pg 13, (really 13 pages!), it would be clearer if the stages instructions had been "...in any order, triple tap the three targets and place the 10th shot on center."

 

But, if we were to expect either stage writers or our fellow shooters to follow or understand the rules of punctuation and/or grammar, we'd be in serious trouble.  I have one of those degrees where besides being a teacher, I'm qualified to ask, 'do you want fries with your burger'?  And, I have trouble both writing clear, concise, grammatically correct sentences... and like most stage writers, I like to use the fewest words necessary to convey the basic form of the stage flow I desire.   But, then again, I like to see what the cowboy action shooter can interpret from my scenario... 

 

Occam's Razor (the simplest answer is often the best answer).

 

But, I must wish you all a good evening, I have to begin my work day @ 2am... and I need my beauty sleep...

I'll see if I can get a consensus from the ROC...at this point, my personal opinion would be just that; not representing the ROC.

Given the local/regional variations of any "stage convention" for such a scenario, I'm thinking that a specifically written stage instruction re engagement options would be advised.

 

The general consensus opinion of the ROC members who responded to the inquiry sent out for a ruling on the OP is to:

Leave it up to individual clubs to handle definitions of sweeps & target engagements on the local level by their own "conventions"; with a recommendation to cover any questions regarding possible variations within the written stage instructions or during posse walk-throughs to ensure consistency.

It's far too silly.

 

What's too silly??

 

Folks, forget about the stage writing. We're are smart enough to know that this specific issue could have been avoided with some clarity on the stage writing.

 

The question has to do with how one defines a multi tap.

 

To the best of knowledge there are two definitions. Would be nice to come to a consensus on what the definition should be. I for one will live with whichever one is chosen.

'Tis actually a Supreme Court type of non-decision, in which no one is "right" or "wrong"...    Thanks for asking PWB.

Of course no one was right or wrong. It's a question of definition. 

 

Arguments that focuses on interpreting subtle sentence structure elements of a stage makes mockery of our game.

Many thanks to Pale Wolf and the rules committee. You’ve handed down a perfectly reasonable (and predictable) decision.

So...peanut butter and jelly sammiches. My wife made me 3 of them the other day. I had to throw one of them away cause she didn't put the jelly on top. Everybody knows the jelly goes on top of a pb and j sammich to get the right consistency.

Uggggg. Just when I think you couldn’t be any more wrong. You buy them pre-mixed. THAT is consistency.

I not sure, but didn't the stage call for triple taps before the single round?   :P

 

Nope.  It was “Triple tap targets in any order, put tenth shot on center target.”   But I think shooting bull later admitted he might have omitted connecting words.  In the stage I shot, i think it was almost the same but said "with the 10th shot shoot the center target"  At least that's what I recall.  I could probably find the description but I'm way too lazy.
