    Can someone tell me when the clock starts for your one minute ,to take two target's?
    Does the clock start when the eye goes to the scope or does it start when you touch the side wheel?
    This will be my first show down and do not want to rob my shooting partner of valuable second's.
    thanks simon

    Eye to scope normally, haven't been myself but sure if wheel was in focus from a good guess you don't need to touch it;)

    Clock starts when you look through the scope.
    Do as much twiddling and guestimating when you first sit down, then eye to scope, saves vital seconds :D

    Showdown .

    When you sit down on the lane , take yout time . pull both strings to check the wind and position of targets . settle your bum . get alignment right to the first target .if your first target is about your zero range set your turret and focus before looking through the scope . load the rifle , up into the aim and shoot . in other words if you are not a quick shooter . guess the range of the shorter one if poss . that shouuld have the first one down in 15 second . leaving you 45 seconds to hit the longer one . if the other way around length wise , reverse the method . if you draw neil , when he puts the scope to his eye . put the stop watch right next to his ear and click it shouting " on the clock " in a loud voice . after a few lanes he will get the hump . hit you between the eyes and get disqualified . leaving the rest of us with a clear run . no don't thank me ??? HOLLY:):D
