A shooters gun breaks during the third trap, shooter goes ahead and finishes that trap, tells the squad to go ahead and shoot without out him and he will make it up later when gun is fixed, gets gun fixed in about and hour and then shoots his last trap by himself, is this legal? By the way, he ends up winning the event by one bird.

It is one of the reasons they have Make-Up traps reserved at larger shoots.---Matt

Would need to be made up before shoot-offs that day so all can be settled. Most make-up traps close before the shoot-offs start.

The Michigan Trapshooting Association program says:

"Any shooter missing all or part of a round should report to the practice traps for a make-up sheet, and make up the round(s) there no later than 30 minutes after the last squad in that event has completed the event. Make-up rounds will be shot alone or with other make-up shooters. If the make-up is not started within 30 minutes after the event, all targets not fired at will be scored zero."

JOND:

Unless the shoot program specifies a time limit for completion of make up targets, shoot management makes the decision.

Management's responsibilities include conducting events in an orderly fashion and posting the results in a timely manner. While they generally try to accomodate shooters as best circumstances allow, make ups targets "should" normally be completed by the end of the event in which break down occurred.

I've never seen management voluntarily delay the posting of final scores once score sheets are received by the office and entered.

MTA Tom, Are you saying that if my gun breaks on my last shot of the third trap, I have 30 minutes to shoot my last 25 or I will have a zero for all the targets on that 25?

Hoosier, only if you were on the last squad...."no later than 30 minutes after the last squad in that event has completed the event"

MTA Tom is correct, but it needs further clarification . . .

If you drop out of a squad mid-trap (sub-event) then if you don't make up the rest of the targets they will be scored as lost (i.e. shot the first 15 and were straight, gun breaks and you don't make up the targets you will be reported as 15x25). However, if you are in the middle of the event (i.e. your gun breaks on the 2nd 25, you will only be scored for the sub-events that you started (i.e. x out of 50, not x out of 100).

It means you have until 30 minutes after the event is completed. That means the last shooter on the last squad has fired his final round...

Scott, most places that I shoot you will be scored on the sub-events that you finished.

Rick -

That is what I was trying to say - once you start a sub-event you are on the hook for all the targets in that sub-event. If you don't shoot them they are lost. But there is no score for sub-events that you don't shoot.

BTW, regarding most of the place you shoot doing it that way. It's an ATA rule.
