Every one has seen the picture's and seen the people in question at the shoot doing the wrong thing.
Nobody say's anything, personally i go to a shoot to do my best and enjoy the company of the fellow shooter's that you are told to shoot with.
Can you imagine just how good a morning shooting you are going to have,if you tell your shooting partner your giveing him /her 2 zero's for doing thing's wrong?
I personaly think this should be the responsability of a proper marshal,some one that is not going to have to sit down and try to shoot two target's in 1 minute thirtyfor every lane after .
In the past i have been taken to one side and told how i should do thing's,and i have nothing but respect for the shooter's that set me straight.
As a novice people make mistake's as double A shooter's your takeing the mick.
I agree with conor EDUCATION is key,demonstrate at the briefing and if you do it wrong after that maybe warning.
But if we are going to have a commitee that take the time to make rule's for the sport,then let's all adhere to them.
About as much use at field target , as a life guard at the Olympic swimming pool.
