    was it in the program...Sometimes for a certain shoot..Usually a state or other big shoot penalty yardage will be assigned...if you do not have the required number of targets...more info is needed to truly answer this question...

    A few years back, I was penalized to the 27 at an Ohio state shoot. I hadn't shot enough targets to satisfy the minimum requirements. Penalty class in singles and doubles works for the intended purposes more so than yardage in my view. Who's afraid of a handicap sandbagger anyway? One out of thousands or more may cut the mustard in handicaps, maybe? The one's I'd penalize if I was boss would be the new shooters barely making the minimums and showing up at the major shoots. Those bare minimums should be for past member records and not new shooters, especially at the big shoots. JMHO

    There is no rule prohibiting penalization to the 27, but it is a bit unusual. Most programs will penalize something like 2 yards with a minimum of 23 and a maximum of 25.
