Use of Radar Gun for Setting Skeet Targets (NSSA Web Site)

Check high house-set at 46.0 to 46.9 MPH. Stand on station 1 and aim gun at the top of the hoop. Hold gun steady and throw a target through DEAD-CENTER (+ or - 6 inches) of hoop. The top speed will be measured approx. _ way to the hoop. Set spring tension within above speeds. A good machine with good targets will throw 4 consecutive targets through a 12" hoop under "NO WIND" conditions. The targets will strike level grounds 58-59 yards from high house. As shooting progresses the transmissions warm the oil and the targets fall at 61-62 yards.
