is also the last Points Race shoot for 2019.
The shoot consists of 100 targets on the Blue and Red courses, shoot one
or both. Lunch is available.
Talk around GSCA ● Have you tried the new
Skeet Universal? I think it should be called 5-stand Skeet
but Universal is what FITASC calls it. The idea behind 5-stand skeet
is to move a lot of shooters through quickly and to put a new spin
I shot it last Saturday at
Flint Skeet and Trap here in Albany. Flint has their 5-stand
situated on a skeet range with a trap range superimposed on it. The 5-stand skeet was easy to set up
as you set the skeet targets like
they normally would be. Then the shooters stand behind 5 stand station 1
and you are ready to go. Each shooter gets a single, then a report
pair and finally a true pair.
You shoot all the targets from stands 1 and 2 with high house first. On
the 3rd stand you get a choice. From stands 4 and 5 you shoot low
house first. We deviated a little since on the third stand as we did
not have a phono puller and we let the shooter decide on the report to
shoot high house first or low house. The true pair on this station
is high house first.
Stands 4 and 5 are low house first on the targets.
It is recommended that one shooter begin on stand one and as soon as they
finish the true pair, immediately move to stand 2, a new shooter rotates in on 1.
Then the shooter on stand 2 starts the menu again. This works well with a lot of shooters waiting to get in, but since
there were only 2 of us, we used the normal 5 stand rotation method.
● Broadfield is reporting that they have nearly 400 shooters
