Could it perhaps be a misunderstanding on behalf of some competitors, ie Shooters are allowed 2mins per lane, this timing starts when you approach the peg.

I have seen people, walk to the peg, put the mat down, pick up the string, look at the wind, give the target a good staring then go back and speak to their shooting partners, have a yap then get ready to shoot, thinking the time didn't start til they had their rifle in their hands.

People seem genuinely surprised when you point out that they started on that peg one and a half minutes ago.

Perhaps a simple addage from golf could help "you are not to stay ahead of the group following you but close behind the group ahead".

On a personal note I think 2 minutes is a hell of a long time to take one shot.
