    on the ata web site, I am coded "H", what does this mean, and where can you find info on this, I looked through the handicap section of the rule book and could not find anything.

    Neil, could you explain the difference between an "L" code and an "R" code. Why the need for both? Is there a secret distinction between them that we, the rank and file are not supposed to know? Jim

    JIm, the R code stops reductions and is generally put on by a delegate or the CHC. The L code is a double-dog R code with the same effect, but it takes more than a delegate to get it off. If I remember right, only the CHC or the EC can remove an L code while the delegate can - through his CHC member is the way I always did it - remove it, or now, change it to an "F" code which I thought they should never name that way.

    Neil why aren't these special codes shown on a shooters average card?

    ebsurveyor the shooter should know. You have to shoot a score that receives 1 1/2 yds(not necessarily a 100)to get the code so the shooter should have a record of the yardage on his card.

    I was told many years ago where and why the L code originated. I will try to do some checking to be absolutely sure before making a statement here, but if you see me just ask and I will give you my opinion. Larry Evans

    "Who knows where the "L" came from?"

    I apologize I just glanced at the your question an was associating it with the "H" code. I can't tell you where it came from but I can tell you that it wasn't in the Rulebook in 2001. It was however in the rulebook in 2002.

    Whether it was in use and not coded or not I don't seem to be able to find. Neils explanation of the difference between the "L" and the "R" is not explained in the rulebook.

    "“L” coded shooter; system will not allow computer reduction"

    "“R” coded shooter, system will not allow computer reduction"

    This is the way they appear in the rulebook with no further explanation, even if you read the section on the "1000 Target Review System Summary". Or the **REVIEW PROCESS** that what I have in my stuff.
