How is the tactical match scored?

When a shooter shoots a course of fire (COF) the competitor is timed from the time the beeper sounds off until the last shot and that time is recorded. The COF is then scored with hits in the different zones (A-B-C-D) with bonus hits and penalties depending on the COF. These points are then divided by the time to develop a hit factor (HF) or points per second.

After these scores are compiled, the competitor with the highest HF is first overall and first in the A class. This person then is classified as 100% and all other scores are curved, using the highest hit factor to develop a percent. 74.99% to 50.00 % is B class and below 49.99 is C class.

Top Gun offers cash prizes to first place in each division, so everyone has a chance to win. Everyone of any skill level is welcome, and everyone has fun!
