I would say yes to a whole match like that but only if a person knew ahead of time that was the set up. I would not be pleasantly surprised showing up to any match that was entirely one "gimmick" if I didn't know it ahead of time.

An entire mini match...No thanks.  I did shoot a outdoor 2 gun match where the rifle was a 1/2 size target due to the limitations on the range size.  In my opinion, mini or reduced size could work, but scoring should be adjusted.  Bigger holes in smaller targets skews the scoring system.

Plus they extra-reward Major scoring,  as if it didn't already have enough of an advantage.

 


Having never shot at one, this hadn’t occured to me.

It absolutely makes sense that it’s an advantage not to have to hunt down tiny A-zones as carefully.

I built a stage or two w them at CASA for an outdoor match. Getting them on stands is extra work and they got shot up terribly. 

 

I bought 50 of them 2.5 years ago and still have 20 of them...

We shot an entire outdoor PCC hoser match with these. Sucked, got shot up really fast hard to hang, hard to score, and no one knew that was going to be the targets. Wasn't too bad for PCC, but would be tough on iron sight shooters. Ok to mix a few in for fun only.

LOL, I haven't looked at the rule book for awhile. Is there a mini target section?

4.2.1.1 must be presented as a whole target plus other restrictions

Lots of other restrictions....

 

4.2.1.1

Half-sized targets of either type are approved for use at Level I matches only and may be used together with full-size targets of same type on a course of fire. No portion of half-sized targets may be covered with hard cover or no-shoots; they must be presented as full targets. The opposite side may be used as a no-shoot target, as with full-sized targets, but they may only be used as free-standing no-shoots, and any half-sized target visually blocked in such a manner must be fully visible at some other point in the course of fire. Half-sized targets may not be mounted onto full-sized no-shoot targets or used as no-shoots on full-sized scoring targets. Restrictions on angle of placement still apply for IPSC targets.

I went to a match which was all mini targets a few years ago, maybe 10 or 12 stages.  It was advertised as such and it was great fun but would not want to do it all the time.  It is not unusual to have a stage or 2 with mini targets in matches I attend.
