Anyone want to approximate their times given the rules for the qualifier?
I'm sort of pumped for this now... who all signed up?AM Rules said:Target distance shall be 20 feet for handgun and 30 feet for rifle.
All shooting for the local qualifying level will be standing, unsupported and freestyle. Freestyle means we do not restrict how you choose to hold your firearm as long as all safety protocol is followed. A two handed grip is permitted.
Total rounds fired per target sheet shall be 25. Total rounds fired during the 2-sheet course of fire will be 50. See the image of the target sheet below for reference.
"String 1": 2 rounds per target, freestyle (10 rounds total)
"String 2": 1 round per target, freestyle (5 rounds total)
"String 3": 2 rounds per target, freestyle (10 rounds total)
Score will be time + penalties. Each of the three (3) strings will be timed separately and recorded on the provided scorecard. After the first 3 strings are complete, Range Master will retrieve target sheet and add up the penalties, which will be added to the score.
Penalties will be scored as follows:
Completely within the center area will be a “0” (no penalty assessed).
Completely within the circular /rings area (stars & stripes) is a 2 second penalty.
Completely outside of the circular area, but still on the target sheet, will be a 4 second penalty. The letters that spell out “American Marksman” count as outside the ring areas.
Any round that completely misses the target sheet will be scored as a 6 second penalty.
Any procedural penalty will be scored as a +6.
Procedural penalties will be defined as:
A round that completely misses the target sheet.
Failure to follow commands or course guidelines.
Any other instance deemed by Range Officer as worthy of procedural penalty.
General rule on penalties: If a round leaves an impact point that crosses over two different scoting areas, the penalty assessed will be the lowest (or least harmful to a competitor’s score) available. The range master administering the contest shall have the final say on all penalties.
