Regardless of the scoring system, there will be a shot timer running as you work your way through a stage. This is an action sport, so you will be moving, and/or changing guns from one target presentation to the next. Before you assume the sport is tailor made for world-class sprinters with a modicum of shooting experience, remember that penalties for misses or failures to engage can turn a speedster’s overall score down to a snail’s pace. Older shooters who wisely pace themselves through stages at a rate that complements their marksmanship skills routinely win matches. In addition, space limitations at many clubs mean the “marathon” you dreaded may be no more than five yards or to the other side of a shooting box. Time, hits and penalties for safety violations is how matches are scored..
Links to an exciting sport
We are excited by the possibility of a Stemmers Run 3 Gun team. Whether or not we get to Nationals or just enjoy the camaraderie, excitement and club bragging rights we would like to get your thoughts on the formation of a team.
