18.104.22.168 When electronic targets are used, the scorer and if possible also the check scorer, shall watch the monitor as soon as the shot has been fired to confirm a hit has been registered.
22.214.171.124 The scorer will call and record each shot as it is signalled and ensure that the check scorer acknowledges each call by repeating the shot value.
126.96.36.199 The competitor must after firing each shot, pay attention to the score called out by the scorer and ensure that the scorer has called out the correct score for each shot. This is especially important if the competitor is firing quickly or an electronic target monitor is being used.
2. The Scorer is to closely observe his shooter as he/she fires and the resultant shot and value displayed on the monitor, and is to record all fired shots (whether scored or not) to the score card immediately. A hit on the timber frame of the target may not result in a value being provided but is to be given the value of a “Hit” in all cases. (i.e. A score of 1)
3. If a shot fails to display on the monitor or if an additional or stray shot appears without the shooter having fired, the Scorer is to immediately inform the Range Officer, and have the shooter suspend his/her firing until the issue is resolved-by the Range Officer. Refer to Rules 188.8.131.52.2 and following when this occurs.
It was agreed at the meeting of the QRA Queens Committee on 5 August that the procedure below is adhered to:
Scorers need to position themselves & scoring monitors so they can observe the monitor, the shooter & desirably the range forward of the shooter.
The scorer will call:
- When the shooter fires
The shot number & value of the shot fired once he verifies it from his monitor.
- Target 6, third business, super V
Scorers will be warned if they do not make clear & prompt calls. Shooters will be warned if they are identified firing subsequent shots before the value of the previous shot is called. The QRA reserves the right to revalue such subsequent shots as zero for persistent offenders.
You are reminded that extra shots appearing on monitors should be reported immediately to either ET Assist staff or Range Officers & shooting should not proceed until the matter is resolved.
Note that Hexta targets are constructed with framing outside the SSR 2400mm x 180mm target dimensions & a shot recorded via a message of shot hit frame will accordingly be scored as a zero value. ET Assist staff or Range Officers are the only people permitted to adjust scores in this case & should be called immediately
