Target Distance Tolerance

Post by fc60 on 10/28/2016, 10:29 am

First topic message reminder :

Greetings,

If someone has access to an NRA Range Manual, would you kindly look up the tolerance for the distance from the Firing Line to the Target Face?

For example:

25 yards +/- 3 inches?

50 yards +/- 12 inches?

Cheers,

Dave

I think he was being facious because it was longer/further than regulation distance/measurement.
So I don't think he was claiming to have shot a national record but that maybe it should be :l)

By the way, thanks for compliment.

Greetings John,

For the folks who don't know Dave Wilson, he is one of the innovation engines that push bullseye equipment forward.

Check's in the mail...

Being very new to all this, the only contribution that I can make is as a "rules wonk" and reading the rules. I'd have to agree fully with cdrt.

If there's a table or stand, don't touch it and you can be firing from anywhere within your firing point (behind firing line and in your lane).

5.5 Firing Position - Standing, gun held in one hand only, the other hand being used in no way to support the gun; all portions of the shooter’s clothing, body and gun clear of artificial support. Competitors will take their position at their numbered firing point in such manner as not to interfere with competitors on either side. No portion of the shooter’s body may rest upon or touch the ground in advance of the firing line. (Fig. c)

6.1 Firing Line - The firing line is immediately in front of the several firing points. All ranges are measured from this firing line to the face of the targets when targets are hung in their proper firing position.

6.2 Firing Point - That part of the range provided for the competitor immediately in the rear of the firing line from which firing takes place. Each firing point is numbered to correspond with the target frames. Each firing point should have a minimum width of 4 feet.
