Or maybe the very short targets ought not to be knockovers at all.
Good starter for 10 Rich, trying ways we can make short targets less of an area for concern. Personally do like the idea of facing targets with carpet as it catches and kills the energy of a stray pellet or shrapnel from a pellet hitting the paddle.
