The Carbine Match is a fast-paced, exciting, practical shooting sport that allows shooters to engage various target arrays with their Carbines
- Each match is usually comprised of 4 to 5 “stages.”
- Each stage is a timed event where the competitor will be required to engage targets with their firearm.
Scoring for the Carbine Match is “Hit Factor Scoring” score for the stage is determined by dividing the points scored by the time it took to complete the stage, with any accrued penalties being added. That results in a Hit Factor (HF) and the highest HF wins. The caliber used can definitely affect how a shooter chooses to engage a stage. All stage scores are added together and that number is the competitor’s score for the match. Pretty simple!
“Divisions” separate competitors based on the type of firearms and equipment they are using. This ensures competitors compete directly with others who have the same equipment capabilities.
