Well, that was interesting and different! A couple of questions:

- Did you find the "dust puffs" distracting, when your bullets hit the dirt out beyond the targets? It was kind of distracting when watching the video, but maybe in the moment it wasn't an issue. It's just a different terrain, is all.

- In some of those stages you had targets low on the ground, so you were basically shooting into the ground at a 45-degree angle. Is that something you've seen around here too, or is shooting into the deck pretty much a no-no locally?

personally i didn't even notice the dust puffs when shooting the stages. You do notice them when you're watching another shooter, but not when you're shooting it.

actually no, when you're shooting, you have a kind of a tunnel vision. You only see your sights, the targets and some of the periphery.

Some clubs do this locally, I think they use some kind of a backstop or maybe dig a hole in the ground. Not too common in these parts.
