It is going to be time to set the targets for registered shooting. Some folks want to use a chronograph to set the targets. I just pulled the rules on "Flights and Angles" on pages 49 and 50. I didn't find any mention of how to do it with a chronograph. Anyone want to direct me to the legal directions!

larryjk, the info is no longer on the ATA website. My guess is it is being revised. I have a copy of the old ATA guidelines, but I don't think they are of much use today. I'll send it to you if you are interested. [email protected] Remove the numbers.

If you want to use a chrono, my recommendation is to get a setup like a PatPal arm and chrono, or something that can be attached and oriented in a repeatable manner. If your club has level ground out to the 50 yard stake, I'd set the trap up using height and distance on a still day, then look at what the chrono says and record it. Then when you set a trap using a height bar and the chrono in the future, you'll be in the ball park.
