      I understand the concept. I agree that it is a useful tool when training new shooters. I start to disagree when I hear the statements of "cleaning" the 25 yard line before moving to the 50.

      To say that one should be able to "clean" the 25 yard line before shooting at the 50 is a very discouraging statement to many Sharpshooters, Marksmen and Classified shooters who are trying to work their way to the top. While these shooters may have never fired a 180/180 Match 2 from 25 yards, they can still learn a lot about the Fundamentals of Marksmenship from the 50 yard line. Wasting ammo, IMHO, is shooting without a purpose. Shooting (from any distance), followed by reviewing your score, and searching within yourself for the mistake(s)you made is what I call learning. I try to learn from every round fired, regardless of what distance it was fired from.

      I'm looking at a score sheet from a NRA Approve PPC Match last month. In the 1500 match there were shooters representing classifications from High Master, Master, Expert, Sharpshooter, Classified and Unclassified. How many 180/180 scores were there for Match 2 of the 1500 from the 25 yard line? ZERO. Best score on this day was 179-14 X by a Master class shooter.

      I say shoot as often as possible, study, evaluate, learn, then shoot some more. See ya on the 50 yard line.
