Candidates will fire 20 shots from a two-handed, unsupported, standing position. Targets will be broken into two tenshot targets or four five-shot targets. Three points will be given for each scoring hit. In order for a hit to count, it must fall inside a ½” border from the edge of the plate. Shots

Target Diameter: Target Distance divided by 60.0
Outside Border: Target Diameter divided by 18.0
Extreme Spread: Target Diameter divided by 1.5
