Episode 11 - Scoring Targets
Down 0, down 3, Two Alpha, Alpha Charlie. You hear these words being called out sometimes very quickly by safety or range officers during the end of a stage but do you really know if they are calling it correctly? Do you know how scoring is conducted in IDPA and USPSA? If there was one thing to double check in these games, it would be how your shots are scored. Steve and Rick talks about how scoring is done and talk about their experiences having done this for a long time.

These are really good videos. I've learned a lot and being new and interested in USPSA, these were really good. Both of the guys are good at explaining at a beginner level.
