    World Records Update

    Wilbur,
    I understand that you no longer own 50/50 but the records which were shot during the time when you did need to be updated. It is understandable that this takes time but I think a year and a half should be sufficient. Please address this issue so that shooters know what the records are.

    Greg is right Wilbur! Help us out. Shooters put out a lot to receive so little it would seem that this sould be a priority. We ain't mad at you we just want your help.
    Thanks

    I haven't checked the records but there are 2 changes to the rule book that need to be amende;
    1. A bullet willnot be placed in the gun until after the commence fire command is given.
    2. You can't lose more points than you can win. ie the double shot target is worst score minus 1 for a maximum of 10.
    Thanks Wilbur for your response.

    I heard someone say not long ago at a shoot that the one point penalty for a second shot on a target had ben rescinded by the "new Guy". Rimfire is the only place I have seen a penalty imposed for a second shot on a target. It's bad enough for someone to make a mistake let alone penalize them for it. It is always simply the worst shot that is counted in other games.

    I agree on the no cartridge in the chamber. There also should be no bolts in rifles until after Commense Fire as well as bolts removed and displayed before competitors arise from their benches. That is the nearly universal rule in other Benchrest games. That makes rifles absolutely undischargable all the time , everywhere, when the bolts are out. Helps alot to be able to use one's rifle to set flags, set up their rests and bags, etc, etc if they are then allwed to be used that way prior to the match; again, nearly universal in other Benchrest Competitions.

    I'm not Pete but I can answer.
    Count the lowest score period...Lots of times in frustration shooters will see the big nine and say what the dickens just went wrong and the anger will drive some to fire a second shot,even if its an X the nine still stands.....

    If thats the case then they should be charged a point for stupidity, the other shooter that got a nine didn't put a second shot on their target, so they get penalized for not shooting another shot!

    The reason I beleive was to keep shooters from trying to improve there score by shooting a bullet in the same hole and just enlarging it enough to score a ten!
    What if it was an edge nine and a shooter thought if I can shoot a ten on top of the nine and the scorer can't tell if the worst score was a nine or ten should he ass-ume that THEY WERE BOTH TENS?!?!
    Why would someone shoot a second shot if he has already shot a ten?
    My feeling is changing the rule is a VERY BAD IDEA, unless it is changed to a minus 10!

    I don't know gents,why its the rule in centerfire,or who made it up in the first place but after eleven years of shooting in that game i can not say i have ever seen it abused...Again when I have seen it, there is always a wide shot involved,with absolutely no doubt what the correct score is...And yet another thing I saw in rimfire that I can honestly say I have never seen in centerfire is shooters protesting someones else s score to get it lowered...

    Pete has a good point and it would be easy to score, two holes in a target box equals a minus 10.

    No Penalty, just the lowest score. " Double Tapping" is quite common; a great frustration release .
