It was agony to watch. Shooters not ready to go when it was there turn. Gun mounted for what seemed like forever before they called for a target.
Luck of the draw or they squadded as friends, I have no idea. Shooters waiting to take the field when they finished were not happy campers. I'm sure not something shoot management is happy to see, as it can cause serious backups.
I read where two squads at the same shoot went out at the same time. One was a three (3) man squad and the other a five (5) man squad. 50 targets per field. Shoot 25 targets with a break to get your second box. Finish the 50 and move to the next field. When the 5-man squad finished shooting the 50, the 3-man squad was just starting the second 25.
I think we can all put up with a so called slow shooter, but more then two and it's not trap shooting.
I blame it on the shooters home club.
Why, no one sitting down with them at there first few registered shoots at the home club and giving them a few pointers before they start traveling to various clubs?
I suspect a number of shooters out of the comfort zone of there home club, feel rushed at other shoots and soon stop shooting registered targets.
May I suggest....
