Stage 2 was a “shooting through tyre tunnels” stage. These fiendishly designed tunnels conceal a steel target at the end of each one, but this time with an oscillating bobber activated by one of the targets. The bobber had a frangible target on the end and swung left-to-right so that it was briefly visible down several of the tyre tunnels. The trick was to time it perfectly so that it appeared at one of the tunnels as


you got there – something that was difficult at best. If you missed it, you would need to take another shot (or several) as it was worth double points. This is a speed shoot stage, made complicated by the bobber, but also the range of shooting positions from very low to shoulder high. Knee pads come into their own on this stage as anyone who has had a spent 12g hull under their knee will attest.
