I apparently have not saved my old rulebooks. I hope some of you have and can help me with this. As I recall, at one time Rule III-A-4 (reprinted below) did not include the last sentance (in bold). Something like that may have been included, as now, in I-C-4 or elsewhere, but it was not mentioned in the definition of Regular Target.

Are there any packrats out there than can help my memory?

III-A-4. Regular Target
A regular target is one that appears after the shooter's
call and within a period not to exceed one (1) second, and
which passes within a three-foot circle centered at a
point fi fteen (15) feet above the target-crossing point.
The target-crossing point shall be measured from the level
of Station 8. The target, in still air, must carry to a distance
equivalent, on level ground, to 60 yards from the skeet house
when passing through the center of the hoop, with an
allowance tolerance of plus or minus two yards.

Thanks Mike. This would be before that, 80's or earlier. I remember a very experienced and well respected chief referee explaining that if a target went through the hoop is was regular target regardless of where it went or landed after that.

My memory in these matters is excellent . Like Mark Twain, it is so good I can even remember things that did not occur. It would be even better if I had a rulebook from that period.

Aha! Rule I-F. Thank you DLM. I was pretty sure there was another section of the Rulebook dealing with this. Not so much picking and choosing but that I just couldn't find it. And it uses the term legal target which is why I couldn't find it using the word search function for regular on the on-line book.
