1st, I'm planning on signing up. Got the form all filled out, just waiting on the wife to leave the check book at home one day so 1 check can accidentally come up missing. :-)
2nd, Can anyone tell me the way the points are given? Like 5 points for a big target 10 points for a small one? What holds the clays up? can you tell if you miss them by 1/4 inch left versus right? Is there a time limit per relay? Are there any write ups on this site that I can read about it? I searched for Lone Star, but all I got was registration info, and info on the shoot in April.
3rd, I did practice today, and I sure hope my guns shoots as good on Sept 12th as it did today. Cause if it does, I won't make an absolute fool of myself.

How's poor Timmy's stomach feeling today? You missed playing with the suppressors yesterday. That extra 100 yds does make a difference.
Call you later.
No you can't see your misses. There is usually a shoot-n-see at the bottom of the target board you can use to shoot sighters. But those sighters come out of your 10 rounds. Targets are usually held on with rubber bands.

here is a sample target from Utopia..Remember this is for a 400yd match..S&S is putting on a 500yd match. I'm sure the targets will be different. Anyhow this may give ya some ideas of what to expect. BTW the Midi's are missing in the middle.

That pic of the target really gives me a better understanding. Since I have never done anything like this, it's going to be tougher than I thought.
Does anyone know what the point factors are for this shoot?

well, called TJ today, and he got my check. He said we needed more shooters.... so I'm trying to do my part, and I talked my dad into shooting too.

Sorry for the delay. We were at the varmint ghunters shoot in South Dakota. The targets will be like the ones shown scoring will be similar to what we are used to. You will be humbled in the format. Any questions email me and talk it wup to your friends. Thanks, Lew
