- The broadcast should be organized in such a way that, through a specially prepared and installed near the target mirror, a close-up image of the target simultaneously appears on the camera lens (you could clearly see traces of projectiles), and the shooter himself at the time of shooting (see location scheme at the bottom). In order to avoid cases of fraud, the entire process of broadcasting a shooting session should be broadcast continuously, without any pauses.
- Download and print the target in A4 size. You can download the target by the link: https://clck.ru/KWNHu. Before starting the shooting session, pre-fill the appropriate fields in the target and measure with a ruler the diameter of the inner red circle, which should correspond to 4 cm (zones 9 and 10). The target should be color and quality printed — all lines between digital zones should be clearly visible. The target contains the following fields: PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (ID) of the participant, participant’s name, round of shooting session, firing distance, date, ammo diameter. All fields must be completed in a neat and legible handwriting.
Target fill pattern:

- hits such a target, a characteristic metallic sound is heard and a clear and unmistakable trace remains (mark), which can then be checked.
