These stages will require mild problem solving, distribution of tasks, and team work to complete. Most stages are left fairly open-ended; meaning, it’s up to the team how they accomplish the required end-state.
The team will split between two positions- one inside the building, one next to the building. There are a total of six targets; half (3) of which will be engaged by each shooter with two rounds each; six targets in total, 3 engaged by shooter one, 3 engaged by shooter two. Radio’s provided at positions for communication.
In this example stage, the team must decided who goes to what location, and which targets are shot by who; targets may vary in size (moa), they may be at six different distances, or maybe only two distances. The team will have to take these factors into consideration and account for individual’s strengths and weaknesses. Communication would also be important - perhaps not all targets can be seen from each location, so the shooters have to assess who can see what targets.
In another scenario, perhaps there are 5 somewhat hidden targets in a given area, and the team must work together to locate and engage those targets.
Suggested Team Equipment:
-Headlamp / Flashlight; Helpful for positions in dimly lit rooms
-Compass; Some stages may provide a target azimuth.
We will be generally following established Hunter style match rules, however, there will be no minimum power factor, no classes, and the only divisions will be Heavy Gun (over 12lbs) and Light Gun (under 12lbs). This is an individual format- no teams for the hunter segment.
Stages for these matches are generally straight forward; there are no stage descriptions, other than which stage format to expect:
Each stage is to consist of 4 target engagements (combination of targets/positions) and 8 rounds, allowing for up to two rounds per engagement. Targets are scored as first round impact, 2 points. Second round impact, 1 point. Once an impact is made, it is a dead target. So to clean a stage, you would fire four rounds in four engagements, and pick up 8 points.
Example stage scoring:
Engagement 1: First round impact, pick up 2 points, move to engagement 2
Engagement 2: First round miss, second round impact; pick up 1 point, move to engagement 3.
Engagement 3: First and second round miss, no points awarded, move to engagement 4
Engagement 4: First round impact, pick up 2 points, stage complete.
Total points: 5 points
