    Question I hear a lot from non competitors is how we go about scoring, and how we do we know if we hit anything. This is a 1st person view of me being the Range Officer for a couple of Grand Master shooters I shoot with. Yong Lee, 4 gun grandmaster and the Chief Firearms Instructor for the Bellevue PD, SVI sponsored shooter. And Bobby McGee, Director, sales for Blade Tech and 3 gun Grand Master, Smith and Wesson sponsored shooter.

    After I run them through the course of fire, I unload them and then go to each target, followed by my score keeper and score each target.

    Each "Metric" target has 4 "scoring zones". And points are based on wether your division recognizes "major" or "Minor" scoring.

    Major Scoring:
    A= 5 points
    B= 4
    C= 4
    D= 2

    Minor Scoring:
    A= 5
    B= 3
    C= 3
    D= 1

    As you can see, you have an advantage shooting "major" powerfactor. This should offset the additional recoil versus "Minor". If you miss it all together, you earn a "M" aka "Mike" which is when you miss the target all together.

    Most COF's will require 2 shots per target, so each target has a potential of 10 points each.

    The name of the game in USPSA is to get the "most points" in the fastest amount of time. To score a COF we add up highest available points, minus out any procedurals/penalties and divide that by your time. What we come up with is what we call a "Hitfactor". The highest Hitfactor wins the stage, and the stage points.

    In a normal match, there is usually a minimum of 6 stages, but I've been known to host 7-9 stages at my matches.

    Good idea AB.
     
  4. When he keeps saying 2, 2, 2 he means 2 alpha, it's informal, but everyone knows what it means so it's not a problem. If it weren't an alpha he'd call out the name.
