What if your shooting with the guys from Kentucky or the Middle East, which I was one time. And they always called a chip when there was none? And the puller says nothing. Do you say anything or let it go?
If I am on a pick up squad and we are not shooting for diamond stickpins, I will let it go for one post just to see if I am shooting with sportsmen or cheaters. If folks won't confess their misses when we change, the next wrong call, I will say something to the scorer and if necessary to the squad.
I will not argue on the line,,,the real low lifes use that trick to get you out of your game,,,I will keep shootin ,,,beet them fair ,,,and not shoot with them any more,,,if it was a one time call ,,,they were messin with your head,,,more than one and they are just lowlife cheaters,,,,and what goes around comes around,,,,love to shoot off with them,,,,and make sure before we start that someone tells them that I have never missed a shoot off target and like to keep the streak going
Good observation HMB. I have hit targets hard and they were called lost (in accordance with the rules). Back when clubs were throwing Remington targets, I have picked up whole targets that had 5-6 holes in them and I bet they were called lost. By the same rules, I have chipped the tiniest piece off a bird and the scorer marks it dead. I have seen and experienced birds hit and change course 45 degrees called lost. The real solution is to "smoke em", no doubts, no cheating, just good shooting.
