Shared-target shooting is a hot topic at the moment. It’s an appealing option, because you can do the same amount of shooting on fewer targets.

But it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. There are risks. If you’re shooting randomly, there’s an increased risk of missed shots (that’s the target missing the shot, not the other way around!). And there’s the risk of ‘crossed shots’ – where two shooters’ shot results get mixed up without the shooters knowing about it.

If you’re aware of the risks and are comfortable with them, shared-target shooting may be for you. But if you’re considering buying such a system and the vendor has not explained the risks, it may be time to start asking some questions!

There’s a lot of technology associated with electronic targets, and a lot of stuff to get your head around. It’s therefore essential that good, accurate information is available in a form that you don’t need an engineering degree to understand. Only with understanding can shooters make informed decisions.

With that in mind, HEX Systems is preparing some articles on various technical aspects of electronic targets. The first of these is now available, and it’s on the topic of – you guessed it – shared-target shooting! Happy reading!
