So, this weekend, the 2009 Pro/Am Shooting competition was going on at USSA Shooting Range. Having a bit of extra time, I volunteered to help the range personal cope with the weekend. The work wasn't too hard and I got to see a fair bit of the competition. To give you an idea of what it was like, this is one of the stages.
I know it's hard to see, but the guy in the red t-shirt wwwwaaaayyy down there is standing next to 4 targets, The man in the blue shirt is standing in front of a table with an ammo can on it. And the 4 blue barrels on the right side of the pic are behind the shooting station at that end. The course goes like this. To the left of the 2 near barrels is a shooting box. From this box you shoot at the 4 targets down by the man in red, they are worth 5 points each. That's 55 yards. Then you run down the 35 yard alley denoted by the yellow tape, picking up the ammo can as you go, to the second shooting box where you have 19 more steel poppers to shoot, 3 rows of 6 and a little one on the ground in the middle. There's a table down there to set the ammo can on. No limit on shots or reloads. You just have 17 seconds to do the thing. If the ammo can falls off the table, it's a 5 point penalty, every popper you shoot after time runs out is a 1 point penalty.
The rest of the stages are more of the same kind of evil sadistic fun.
The best I saw was 30 points total and someone said they saw someone get 33 points.
How fast can you run 35 yards?
