    At the end of event, squad leader not to happy with score keepers results. Squad leader says that other suqad member did not score what score keeper stated? Even the shooter in question said he missed more than scored, but did not know how many? There where a few problems with the whole 50 target event. What is the rule for this. I read over the rule book but did not find a clear answer.

    What did the scorer read off at the change? That is what I go by and then compare it the total at the end. Once you change, the score for the five stand.

    So what do you do when the scorer calls lost (rightly so) on 2 targets total and then when the round is over, you find the scorer only marked 1 as lost? I tried to explain that I dropped 2 targets, the scorer called 2 lost, yet the scorer only marked one as lost. Unfortunately, we had to let the 24 stand, which rather irritated me. I don't like "gimme's."

    According to the rules, the scorer is the final decision maker, so to speak, unless you catch the error "before" you change posts. Correct?

    I too don't like "gimme's. I'll question but not argue. Scorers young eyes are usually better than mine, but I sometimes think they confuse wads with pieces.

    I score as well as shoot and I can guarantee that the view from the chair is much easier than from the walks.

    320090T, I agree. I also score as well as shoot and I'm particularly careful when calling out scores and recording them. I mark them as I see/call them. I also wear my shooting glasses when scoring, since they are prescription and I can see things crisply with them.

    I've a feeling my scorer (who was not a kid) wasn't paying attention, lost track and then had to fill in the blanks based on memory. First time I've had 2 targets called lost and only one recorded. It didn't hurt or help me, but still...

    I don't think anyone would fight you over taking one away. I have had to request my score be "adjusted" in the minus direction in the past and I am certain it will happen again in the future. You will get a fight if you try and add one after shooting a whole round.

    I want my score to be accurate. I know that occasionally, scorers do make mistakes. But, scorers make fewer mistakes scoring than I make when shooting. I do not always get what I want.
