Target Pulling 101
« on: March 11, 2014, 08:37:21 PM »
While the scoring procedures (where you mark the shot value on the target) have changed a couple of times since this video was made. It gives an excellent lesson in how to work the pits.

More pit advice from Jonathan Ocab:

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dXA9A5jY1E
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSU2oa5Rs1I
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AF9qENgrevU

Now some of this advice doesn't apply at Butner where the targets run by electric motors.

Can we put this in the Known Distance forum?

You are welcome to copy it there. But I do not have access to the Known distance forum and I think that people other than instructors can benefit from the post. Perhaps Skill sets of Rifle would be a better place.
