    Shooter has never shot a 100 Straight.

    He enters a registered 200-shot Singles event.

    He shoots 95 in the first hundred and 98 in the second hundred.

    But there are 100 Straight within the 200 total targets.

    23 22 25 25 | 25 25 25 23

    Realize that the scores will be recorded as 95 and 98.

    But is the shooter deserving a 100 Straight patch ?

    We shoot a unofficial league and record the four best consecutive score for the night. If that shooter did as you say he'd be able to claim 100 straight. Someone may even offer to buy her a 100 straight patch. All of this has nothing to do with ATA or any other sanctioned shooting event - just our local way of dealing with personal bests.

    No, not if you are going by ATA criteria.

    4-25s anywhere is a 100 straight in my personal book, they broke a 100 maybe not from scratch.

    I think he now knows he can break 100 consecutive without a miss, that is an important hurdle to clear.

    But when you are talking about breaking 100 straight, most shooters will understand that is 100 out of a 100 target event, or the first or 2nd 100 of a 200 bird event.

    Had a conversation over something similar. League shooting. 25 per round a night is what is usual. Shoot two different teams per night. Shoot 50 straights on both teams two weeks in a row, is it 100 straight? Not 100 straight on the score sheet, but it is 100 straight. 25 straight four weeks in a row, is considered 100 straight, and you get a club patch. ATA rules aside of course.

    How many people actually get to shoot a 100 bird shoot, especially if they do not shoot ATA?

    If it was a good looking chick that shot those scores, I would give her a 125 Straight patch!

    A friend once asked me if 50 straight on Tuesday then 50 on Wednesday is 100 straight. IMHO no. Ya gotta do it without putting the gun away and going home [or somewhere]. Bill

    If I break 1 target a day for 100 days without missing is it 100 straight? Of course not.

    Come on you all, please do not try to re right the book!
    Although that is very nice shooting, "IT IS NOT 100 STRAIGHT"

    I date Mary for awhile and am intimate with her on numerous occasions. (Yea me!). We break up and then I start dating Alice and get intimate with her, again go me! Have I been involved in a three way? Sure don't feel like it...

    A 100 straight patch does not have an official definition or recognition. It is just the shooters own recognition for themselves. However the shooter wants to define it. If you want to claim 100 straight for shooting 1 rock per day for 100 days without a miss. You go for it. For myself it will be for a 100 target event consecutive. But whatever. Terry

    Much more pressure on those last 25 targets, especially those last 10 or 5. That pressure from within is part of the 100 straight glory.

    It's not just physical, it's mental too.

    Don't diminish the accomplishment with your girly math. Give me a break!

    NO!
