    Who knows the rules? Annies, last night, we use a few White flash targets for the odd random $5 money birds. One was flashed, but no visible pieces were seen. Then the argument ensued! What's the call?

    Dead.

    If it was a good hit, chances are, you wouldn't see the pieces because they were obsured by the flash powder.

    Counts according to ISSF rules (for shootoffs), which is the only organization that officially uses flash targets.

    This is interesting. Our club bought a few cases of the orange flash targets. We put them in the traps at intervals during our league nights so when a squad is shooting they will get one per 25 (sometimes 2 due to short squads). The squad has the option of kicking a buck per person and if the shooter that gets the first flash of the round breaks it they get the money. Any way, last Wednesday night during league shooting, a shooter on my squad had one of them and when he shot, the target shifted and a puff of orange came off it but no visible piece. Would this have counted as a break???

    In Int'l targets, a flash of smoke = dead bird.

    Where “flash” (powder filled) targets are used, a target must
    also be declared as “HIT” when there is visible emergence
    of powder after a shot is fired;

    When I have a special shoot (Lucky bird turkey shoot for instance) or our home-made flash targets, we announce/post the rules to avoid this.

    then, when an unanticipated problem arrises, we go to "Rock, paper, scissors". That fixes all problems

    just to remind everyone issf targets are harder than trap targets so must be hit well to provide a good break
