Q. How is the tactical match scored?
A. When a shooter shoots a course of fire (COF) the competitor
is timed from the time the beeper sounds off until the last
shot and that time is recorded. The COF is then scored with
hits in the different zones (A-B-C-D) with bonus hits and
penalties depending on the COF. These points are then divided
by the time to develop a hit factor (HF) or points per second.
After these scores are compiled, the
competitor with the highest HF is first overall and first
in the A class. This person then is classified as 100% and
all other scores are curved, using the highest hit factor
to develop a percent. 74.99% to 50.00 % is B class and below
49.99 is C class.
The good part of this system is we
pay back prizes to first place in each division so everyone
has a chance to win. Men-Ladies-young-old-good shots-not so
