One shot targets at competitions

Given the shortage of ammo - I wonder if that will discourage folks to compete at venues like IDPA. USPSA folks love to hose away but IDPA you usually shoot two and maybe three at a target - supposedly duplicating the real world (yes, I know ).

But what about this - at a local match make it optional that you can declare that you will chose the one shot option.

Each target gets one shot. It must be a Zero zone or it is a miss. That will save ammo and stress accurate shots.

It would also work for shooting 5 shot J frames or the smaller pocket guns.

What do you think? This might offend the competitors as it increased the novices. But it might get more people and certainly speak to the ammo shortage. Will new folks start if they can't sustain the ammo requirments.

Reloading isn't something everyone wants to do.
