New game in town - for old folks, too.

While cruising around the web the other day, I ran across this new approach for doing silhouette, always one of my favorite forms of competition.
There's no matches around these parts, but this version would be very easy to do.
And it's very suitable for old folks, too, as it's shot from the sitting position only.
Everyone brings their own lawn chair and just four silhouette targets, the size depending on the range length and caliber.
.22 rimfire, both pistol and rifle, seem to be the most popular.
Each of the four targets is hung from a support as a swinger so there's no tedious need to reset them after each course of fire.
They are set up in the usual target distances directly in front of each shooter and scored normally, - ten shots at each target for a total of 40 possible hits.
Which allows a lot of folks to participate at the same time, without the usual boring delays waiting for their turn.
Lots more shooting in less time, which of course leaves more time for lunch.
Sounds kind of neat.
