General Information – Practical Shotgun Competition:

Course of Fire

There will be 4 Stages, falling steel, 51 rounds minimum, 100 plus recommended.  Unlimited (Comstock) scoring, shooter may use as many rounds as needed to complete the stage. Each stage will consist of 12 to 14 falling steel targets per stage. Stages scored with time plus scoring, steel must fall to score, 5 seconds for each miss, 5 seconds for each procedural.  Time starts with the buzzer and ends with the last shot. Competitors will start with shotgun on a table in front of the shooter. No limit on magazine capacities but shooters will begin the stage with only 5 shells in the gun but may reload at any time once the timer has started. Reloading must be done by hand, no speedloaders. Shooters will need to carry enough rounds on their person to complete the stage. Birdshot only # 7 1/2 or less (#7 ½, #8, or #9). Each squad will need to reset and paint steel between each shooter.  Scoring will be done electronically.
