Anybody know how to set the delay time on a CVR to what it is supposed to be for ATA Trap?
This weekend I shot at a Provincial Shoot over here in South Africa, and one of the traps was set way too slow, and the next one was set too fast.
I asked the club manager if he knew how to adjust it, and he didn't. CVR's are only used over here for competitions, and not too many people know how to set them.
Anyway, for what its worth, I shot pretty good.
I could only shoot one day of the two-day shoot, and I shot 4 events.
ATA Trap – 96 which was good enough for Class A Bronze medal. I think there was one 99, two 97’s and four or five 96’s.
ATA Doubles – 81 which, although not up to my expectation was still good enough for High Gun Silver. One guy shot an 87. Almost nobody shoots doubles over here, except for provincial shoots.
NSSA Skeet – 87 didn’t win me a medal, but was good enough to help with a Team Bronze with two other guys.
Shot a 294/100 in DTL, a personal best. High Gun Silver Medal, plus Team Gold Medal. DTL is just like ATA trap, except the angles are a little wider (true 3-hole), the target is thrown just a little faster (44 mph), and you get 2 shots. Three points for a first shot kill and 2 points for a second shot kill. I broke all 100 targets, but had six instances where I missed on the first shot and broke the target on the second shot.
Not only that, my 294 in DTL, plus my 96 in ATA, plus my 81 in ATA doubles garnered me the Trap HOA Gold medal.
They're big on medals over here.
This is me with my friend Peter Nieuwoudt who shot a 299 in DTL.
