Barry,

I agree that it is very hard to keep the concentration of the scorer going throughout a shoot and electronics haven't improved that i'm afraid. It remains a problem.

Regarding the question about the scoring the answer is yes.

Alan, No image is sent from the target. The sensors can resolve a the centre of a shot to within at least 0.65mm. This is then transmitted to the shooters computer via radio modem and the software takes over. We asked for software that treated the centre of impact as the centre of a 7.62mm circle an...

Good questions Adam. About ricochets I am not sure. My best guess is that the shooter would be credited with a score . I can't see any way around that. The "crossfire" situation is one of those procedural things that we need constructive advice about. I don't believe that the scorer/observer is elim...

Don't know yet Tom. That is why we are testing. If it needs to do that it should only be a software fix so that you program the calibre before the shooter begins.

Barry, Further to my post above consider the following the marker was too slow the marker was too fast (don't laugh, this was a formal protest placed at an international event I was officiating at) the shot went down the peg so the marker missed it. spotter disagrees with value shown patches came of...

Barrie, We don't measure to the outside of the projectile we measure to a guage. For example, .223s have to be guaged to a 7.62 size. I will accept your point about no compromise when I get a new target every time I fire a shot. Once you have patches on a target and the the line is in any way obscur...

Pose the question Barrie, get the answer. !. The target you shot on in Brisbane was the old ADI prototype which was trying to do too much with old technology. We are 20 years further on 2. Your question about different calibres doesn't make sense. The sensors pick up the difference in time between t...

Wind on the target doesn't affect these electronics as the sensors are just behind the target in a windproof box. The people at Bisley, who are testing them not selling them, claim 1mm accuracy at 1000 yards. I don't know of any markers who can claim the same. Still, you have to try before you are s...

Anakie Rifle Range

I have been overseas for the last two weeks and so I missed the discussion about the Geelong Rifle Club's range at Anakie which was part of the one-gun shoot debate. Firstly I should lay to rest one misconception. The Geelong Rifle Club did not choose to go down the track that it has. The original c...

Anakie

For information of all shooters. On Geelong Prize meeting's program it states that we will not proceed if there is a Total Fire Ban on that day. This decision was made back in November when things looked desperate. Since then we have had no rain and so everything has dried off and there is no chance...

Never know who is lurking do you?

No worries Ned. We will have a 25 metre zero target available all day.

You can get a zero on that and then away you go.


Cheers
