Thumbs down Bad form

Coaching on the firing line to me is telling someone the exact distance to a target before they shoot it, telling them the wind direction and how much windage drift to allow for in order to hit it before shooting the target.
Pointing out the correct order of targets to someone IMO is not coaching it only gives them an opportunity to make an honest attempt at hitting the target therefore a genuine miss of the correct target would be deemed possible. Anyone knowingly allowing a competitor to shoot an incorrect target would be very unsporting and to me in a sport I enjoy, and such a person is not worth knowing.

In my opinion this thread has gone a but silly anyway, the issue should have been dealt with there and then and sorted out preferably before the shooters left the lane. Getting the wrong end if the stick is all too easy in these situations and doesn't do anyone anyone or the sport any favours!

He who never made a mistake never learned!
He who never missed never shot!
