Last week I found myself shooting skeet since it had no wait and the other games I wanted to shoot had lines. So I'm shooting my skeet, which I do infrequently, and on station #2, on the double pair, I take a shot at the high bird and lo and behold, I hit both birds!!<br><br>Did you see that?! <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/happy.gif" /><br><br>Yep. It only counts as one. <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/indifferent.gif" /><br><br>What??! Are you kidding? That should count as three!! <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/mad.gif" /><br><br>So they go on to explain to me something like this. If I hit both birds with one shot, then it only counts as one. If I hit the first bird, and pieces of that bird break the second bird, then I get to score two. Is that correct? Can someone explain this to me? I say give the poor skeet rookie a two!<br><br>Later I realized that the only thing more fun than hitting both birds with one shot is telling the rookie that he only gets to score it as one. I'm waiting for the next rookie. <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/devil.gif" /><br> <p></p><i></i>

"If I hit both birds with one shot, then it only counts as one. If I hit the first bird, and pieces of that bird break the second bird, then I get to score two. Is that correct?"<br><br>No...if both birds are broken, either by shot or bits, it still counts as a single, and you get counted which ever one you actually shot at first, so on station 2 you would get a break for the high house, then you would reload, and call for the double again, only needing to break the low house bird. You can shoot them both, as most shooters will, to keep the rhythem of the shot but will only get scored for the low bird. see **** below<br><br>pg 47 of the NSSA rule book::: its PDF<br><br>3. If the first target of a double is thrown irregular as to deviate from the prescribed line of flight and is not shot at, a proof double shall determine the score for both shots, whether<br>the second target is fired upon or not. The referee shall be<br>the sole judge of irregularity.<br>4. If the first target of a double is thrown irregular as to deviation from the prescribed line of flight, and is shot at, the<br>result shall be scored for the first shot in accordance with IIIC-<br>5 and if the shooter is deprived of a normal second shot<br>for any of the reasons in III-E-5 the second target only shall<br>be declared no bird and a proof double shall be fired to<br>determine the result of the second shot.<br>5. If the shooter is deprived of a normal second shot for any of the following reasons, the result of the first shot shall be<br>scored, and the second target only shall be declared no bird<br>and a proof double shall be fired to determine the result of<br>the second shot.<br>a. The second target is thrown broken.<br>b. The second target is thrown irregular as to deviation<br>from the prescribed line of flight and is not shot at.<br>c. The second target is not thrown at all.<br>d. The second target is not thrown simultaneously.<br>****e. Both targets are broken with the first shot.<br>****f. The wrong target is broken with the first shot. (For proof double ruling see paragraph 8 below.)<br>g. The first shot is lost and a collision occurs before the<br>result of the second shot is determined.<br>****h. The second target collides with fragments of the first<br>target properly broken, before the result of the second<br>target is determined.<br>i. The result of the first shot is determined, and interference<br>occurs before the second shot is fired.<br>III-E-5-h<br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.mynssa.com/downloads/NSSA-Rule-Book-2003.pdf">www.mynssa.com/downloads/...k-2003.pdf</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--> <p>There is a fine line between a hobby and insanity.</p><i></i>

The first target is established as dead. You repeat the pair and have to fire AT both targets in the correct order. Since you were on station 2 you would need to shoot at the high one first then the low one. Basically as lone as u make some what of an attempt to shoot the high one first then you are fine. No matter if you hit it or miss it it is still dead the second one is all you need.<br><br>Steven <p></p><i></i>

Would you like to guess what happened when they presented the pair the second time?<br><br>Yep..... I missed them both. <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/mad.gif" /><br><br>I still scored the first one but I think I was too concerned with what had just happened to really concentrate on shooting the pair again. Yeah, that's it. I was distracted. Had to be. Can't think of another reason I might miss those birds. <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/wink.gif" /><br> <p></p><i></i>
