Who doesn’t love to shoot reactive targets?


This competition is a fun way for competitors to hone their skills on a regular basis while also participating in a style of shooting otherwise not available in an indoor shooting environment.


In this double elimination, bracketed, and head-to-head event, competitors will compete until there is only one victor left. 


Beginning in the low ready position, shooters will engage the targets when signaled to do so. The first competitor to eliminate their targets will be declared the winner. The less effective shooter will move down to the loser's bracket or will be eliminated. If both competitors use all of their ammunition, but fail to eliminate all of the targets, or in the event of a tie, they will face off with a reduced number of targets. The victor will advance.
