    Have heard the L code referenced several times lately on numerous threads. From referencing prior threads it seems that a shooter would receive an L code in thier record for conducting themself in a much less than ethical manner. However, when referencing the rule book it doesn't indicate what the L code would be attached or awarded to the shooter for. Farther, the R code is with the exception of a comma versus the use of a ; reads word for word verbatim the same as the L code. All other codes are clearly self explanitory.

    Does anyone know the ATAs actual detailed definitions of the L and R codes? More specifially, why use two codes with the same wording and not say in either how, why or what they are applied or awarded for?

    note; Thanks V10 for your previous input on this subject as well as numerous others that you have been keeping everyone informed about lately!

    Have reposted this to top as I should have been clearer with the question on the earlier post.

    Kindest Regards, Lewis LaRoche, Sr. (H coded if your wondering)

    I know what the "L" code was and the two people that created it. The shooter responsible is a friend of mine and had a last name that started with an "L". He was a 27 yard shooter and sandbagged his way to the 23 yard line. At the PA state shoot that year he broke a 98 in one of the big handicap events from the 23. Another friend of ours was on the CHC and later became president of the ATA. He had the "L" code implemented. The "L" code means that a non category shooter that reaches the 27 yard line may not be reduced to any yardage shorter than the 25. The 25 might be 24 not sure because it all happened at least 25 years ago.

    As shown on the above website link, the "Y" code is for someone who has attained the 27 yardline cannot be reduced below the 24 yardline. This is waived for a Vet or Senior Vet.

    The current "Y" code is the original "L" code.
