WTC Texas Stars and Dump Targets

Recommended Posts

Pistol, Rifle, shotgun order. A 5 paddle Texas star for pistols with its own dump target, a 5 paddle Texas star with its own dump target for the rifle. Shotgun is a flat steel swinger plate. Pistols and rifle loaded with 10 rounds

Shoot the 5 paddles off the star any remaining rounds go on dump target. Any paddles left are misses, any misses on the dump target are misses. Same for pistols and rifles, 2 rounds on the shotgun swinger

 Shooter shoots 5 paddles off with pistols puts 5 on the pistol dump target. Rifle, he shoots 5 paddles off and then puts the remaining 5 rounds on the shotgun swinger. Shotgun 2 rounds on shotgun swinger.

Whats the call for 5 rifle rounds to have been shot on the rifle dump target but shot on the shotgun swinger, no misses?

5-SECOND PENALTIES

Misses are 5-Second penalties.  Revolver, rifle, and shotgun targets must be engaged with the appropriate type of firearm.  

A MISS is defined as the failure to hit the appropriate target type using the appropriate type of firearm and includes:

...

...

- Each target hit with an incorrect firearm – either intentionally or by mistake.

Thanks for this. I was the score keeper/TG. And was overruled by the spotters and the TO. 5 misses is what I said. I'll 'educate' everyone at next weeks shoot.

Thanks

Monthly match and shooters were not wanting to be hard asses. I asked the question knowing the answer. Next Sunday I’ll school the group.

Monthly matches are the best place for shooters (and T/Os) to learn and practice proper application of the rules.
Doing so has nothing to do with being a "hard ass"...why not "school" them at the time it happened??

I like to keep a copy of the SHB close by. Also maybe a hard copy for the range would help.

Another idea is to see if there is a RO instructor in your neck of the woods that could come and give a re-fresher RO class for the club. Enforcing the rules properly is not being a

hard-ass!!!    

 

just my $.02

So guys, I normally would have stopped the TO and spotters but they had made a decision and the next shooter was on the way up when I got wind of it. Late in the day and so I decided to wait. This way I can bring it up to the entire club at the next shoot instead of just a few at the line. I am 1000% behind following the rules and calling whats needed. But too late the incident to really do anything.

I carry a laminated card with the flow chart on it so we can easily end the argument...
