    This may have been discussed before but I believe that a shooter should replace his/her microphone to the proper yardage instead of letting others perform the chore. In fact I think it should be a rule.

    I appreciate that it seems like a polite thing to do but most don't put the mic exactly where the shooter wants it and it's position is 'improved' anyway. It leaves a chance that the shooter shoots from the wrong yardage, as well. The shooter should be responsible for making that error not a well meaning peer.

    Someone else may replace the mic on the wrong yardage and the shooter may shoot from the wrong yardage.

    I agree entirely with the AdvoCat. I just think it should also be the rule.

    Are you ever happy? Fix your own mic and shoot your own targets. Sounds like you cannot be pleased. Shane

    In the future there will be a microphone for a wireless system that will attach to each shooter's vest or collar that will eliminate the problem. Where's Thos. Edison when you need him?

    Big Heap...as if you didn't already know.....it's already there and not only does it eliminate the need to fart around with mics. It also eliminates cross calls created by the so-called hog callers. Now....If everyone had Erad's and there was nothing else to talk about except.....7 1/2's or 8's......how boring.

    Shoot the targets and quit thinking about where the frigging mic is!

    For me, the most irritating part of "mic movin" is all the targets I see wasted. Scorers need to be taught this simple procedure at the first and not turn it back on till all the fidgeting stops.

    Rickyd, I like those much better! Hap

    I never move the mic for the shooter after me, just as soon the shooter before me didn't move it for ME either. If he does tho' I understand he's doing it as a courtesy, nothing to get all distracted over either way? I have more important things to think about when I'm getting ready to shoot. It's the shooters own responsibility to make sure he's standing on the correct yardage, when I step unto the new post------always look down to make sure I have my feet placed properly and I'm looking at the correct yardage number.

    This is an important topic to me since, I came close one time to shooting at the wrong yardage. Keep your do-goodder hands off the Mic and let me move it!!! One day I was shooting with an older fellow who could hardly walk, everytime we change positions he moved my mic while I stood two feet away from him!!! Complete senselessness. I think it should be a rule as well........
