3 shots @ 5 Bulls. - Max Score 150Targets for this Match
"Open Sights" targets can be used with scopes and vice-versa, as the shooter prefers. Purchased Gamo target cards can also be used for this match if shot consecutively as a single intended match entry.
Shots are scored according to the highest value of the target scoring zone or ring that is touched by a circle centered over the shot with a diameter equal to your pellet caliber. A scoring gauge or the head of a wadcutter pellet comes in handy for this (the pellet skirt may be too large). If any part of a scoring ring (demarcation line between the scoring zones) is touched by the circle, including even the outside edge of the scoring ring line, the shot is scored the higher value of the two scoring zones. In order to score an "X," the entire circle must remain within the 10 ring (this exception only affects calibers larger than 177).
Any sighting device is fine.
Standing unsupported, one or two hand only, no rests of any kind. Seated is permitted only if you are unable to stand.
Time limit is 15 minutes for this match (18 minutes allowed for multi-pump pistols).
