Back about a hundred years ago we shot against a visiting team, they shot our course then we shot their course, (international) and then we had a fun match. 2 shooters at a time to the line. 5 targets each. They faced the targets to the shooter for 8 seconds then turned them again, you reloaded and repeated so hopefully each target had 2 holes. That was the only match where they beat us soundly and is the match that caused me to start shooting at multiple targets when I practiced. Sure did surprise me how easily a cocky sharpshooter could get spooked and look bad facing a brand new challenge for the first time especially when their guy I was matched up with sounded like a machine gun, he didn't need 4 seconds let alone 8. Good days.
