Just joined PCSI this morning, then had to make a bee-line to work! Sorry I missed meeting you, and watching the fun. Next time, for sure.

What is a no-shoot hit?

Still learning here.

Are they still accepting members at the club? Last I heard they had about 50 memberships still open but its been a few weeks. I recently lost my job so I've been trying to scrimp the extra pennies together to join but times are tight for that kind of stuff.

The no-shoot target . . . one of my worst enemies. Ha!

First let me explain the USPSA / IPSC "Metric" target. (don't ask me why they call it a "metric" target . . . makes no sense to me!) Anyhow, the first image shows the metric target with its five scoring zones: upper A, lower A, B, C and D.

The no-shoot target is a metric target with no scoring zones, and is always white. If you put a hole in a no-shoot target, you will be penalized 10 points. Oh yeah, your score is reduced 10 points for EVERY hole.

I have included two images showing five no-shoots on my practice range. This will give you an idea of how they might be used when poppers and steel plates are involved. Look at one image and you will see that some of the small poppers are behind a no-shoot. In the next image I have taken a few steps giving me a shot. ( I should point out that my poppers are not official size. I intentially made them small, to raise the level of difficulty)

More often than not, you will see no-shoots used with metric targets. That is, attached to the front of the metric target and covering part of the scoring zones. A common practice is to cover half of the lower A zone.

I don't know what it is about the color white but, it really attracts lead!

3 long courses, 1 short course and the qualifier was "Oh No". Can't remember the number for Oh No.

I found the short course to be the most fun, even though the round count was just 8! On the left side of the bay were two large poppers, the one on the outside activating a drop-turn located on the right side of the bay. In the middle of the bay, two metric targets.

um . . . . now I remember why I liked that quicke. I was able to shoot it with 8 rounds. Yeah, it was my best stage!

The three long course's were as good as ever! Jason did a great job, considering he had to step back in, as match director on short notice. He approached two or three people, that day, asking them to consider the job.

Very good turn out for a March match too . . . 37 shooters
