: I haven't come across this one Patrick. In fact I don't think it is possible as that would stop the use of consecutively numbered targets.
Yes, as Richard mentioned, it usually is smaller, more primative matches (aka anything in Canada. *s*)
I agree with you on the name and numbering issues. At larger competitions, we use comp. #'s only and the athletes are told not to put their name on them, possibly under threat of penalty. The officials want to reduce possible favoritism or the accusation of it. During appeals, the officials may not even know the comp. # involved. Then again, this is only when the person next to you isn't your scorer.
A few groups have Rika target scorers for AP/AR, but nothing else. Do you or Spencer know about target scoring devices for 25/50m? I would assume that they would be prohibitively expensive, although still cheaper than electronic targets on every firing point.
