Don't shoot the D zone

Recommended Posts

It's too easy for the score keeper's finger to drift over to the M column and not notice it. And, it's not so simple for the shooter to take a quick glance at the recorded scores to see a mark in a column that doesn't look right. Just a new Modern Problem.

Use a tablet pen...they are more accurate than fat fingering the screen. :cheers:

Ditto.

Also the shooter should look at the summary page, and not the scoring columns.

How does it work with 3 or more shots per target? I was not there but apparently there were some problems at Area 3 with the stage that required 3 scoring hits per target. The palms did not want to record more than 2 per target so they had to score 2 targets and fill in 3 on the palm.

Improper stage setup on the handhelds...you can setup the targets to score any number of hits. They might have overlooked it during the match/stage setups.

Nook too small-use an iPad

Had two problems with iPad scoring recently. 1. The glare off the screen made it very tough to see what was actually on the screen. 2. We had two iPads overheat (very hot days outside I might add) and stopped working for a time. I ended up carrying around an umbrella while scoring so that I could see the screen.

Man, I can't get away from computers. Can't even go shoot a match anymore without being haunted by those things. The machines are taking over!

I tell u what we started using the nook at one of the clubs I shoot at. It may be a P.O.S.but you can flat see the screen in direct sun light.

Really might be the only good think about it? Lol

Never say "Don't...". Instead say, "Shoot only Alphas because..."

I'm betting the Delta count goes up this weekend for all that read this thread.

They are so easy to spot aren’t they?!? But this one seems to maybe be spamming with all the incoherent babbling

There is nothing against forum rules in replying to threads, no matter how old they are. This is an information forum, and as such, if someone has information they wish to share, even in a 5 year old thread, they are welcome to share that information.

Or maybe English is not their first language? This forum is open to all, no matter what language they speak. As for being a post count bumper or spammer, the moderator group will be the judge of that.

Now you’re just an enabler. It’s obvious post bumping. I’m not the only one to notice or mention it, just the only one you felt like making a comment on. As for the language issue, yes I agree the forums are open to all , and didn’t need you or anyone else to point that out, but a bump is a bump in any language.

  Last time i’ll Send you a message to help out. I say let ‘em bump!!!

Fair enough,  i just didn't see any information shared. I recently thought about some things and  think this is a great topic too. 😕
