I'm afraid, Life just isn't fair.

The best way to avoid an unfair placing because of countback is to knock one more target over in the competition, make it 2 just to be sure
Life isn't fair -tell me about it. But where possible, we can try to level the playing field. My beef with count-back is that it has nothing to do with shooting skill. Evidently, somebody thinks that the order of scoring from peg 1 is somehow indicative of shooting ability. Pants; talk to a statistician. A shoot-off on the other hand, does require skill. I don't like them either, but it is the lesser of two evils.
