PART   II.
SIGNALLING AND SCORING.
(b) If a shot hits the ground in front of a target and then
rebounds and hits the target it is a ricochet, and is marked
in the ordinary matches by waving a black bar across the
target, it has no value, but is marked on the score card by
the letter R.     No spotting disc will be shown for a Ricochet.
(c) Misses will not be signalled ; but if a target is lowered
under the impression that it has been hit, and no hit is found
on the target, after raising it the marker will wave a red flag
across its face, to signify that the target has not been struck.
2. Any target hit, is lowered into the butts for examination, and the position of the hit is shown when the target
is again raised, by a spotting disc fastened through the bullet
hole.
3. When two shots strike a target, that which has the
highest value alone will be signalled, and the competitor
whose proper turn it was to fire at the target will be credited
41 with that shot, provided that he has fired. Both shots will*
however, be shown with spotting discs. The competitor
whose proper turn it was to fire at the target will, on
application to the Range Officer, be allowed to fire a sighting
shot before his next shot in the competition.
4. The marking may be challenged before any other
shot has been fired at the same target, on the sum of twenty-
five (25) cents being first deposited with the Range Officer.
If, on examination, the marking in question is confirmed, the
twenty-five (25) cents shall be forfeited without appeal-
If on the contrary, the objection proves well founded, the
correct value will be signalled in the usual way, and the
twenty-five (25) cents shall be returned to the competitor who
paid it, and the score altered in accordance with the decision
received.
