    Hi Everybody.

    What exactly is stacking. I read the definition in the Glossary of the Glock Annual but am still a little confused.

    For example:

    In "Five to GLOCK" the course description says "engage each target with only 2 rounds each, in any order. No stacking allowed."

    So, does this mean that you can double tap the targets or does it mean that you must shoot each target once before repeeaeting for the second shot?

    Thanks.
    Nate

    It means only 2 shots per paper target, Period. If you missed a paper target you cannot take a 3rd shot to make 2 hits per paper target.

    Or pick it up on a subsequent string.

    This is definitely more applicable to IPSC matches. For example, last Sunday at a match, the course of fire was to put 2 rounds in each target, string 1=freestyle, string 2=weak hand, string 3=strong hand. Since it was Comstock scoring, you can make up shots. Since I can't hit the broadside of a barn with my weak hand, I put 3 rounds in each target in the 1st string, shot the dirt on the 2nd string, and shot 3 rounds in each target on the 3rd string.

    Yeah, it's playing cheap, but I didn't bottom out that stage by any means!

    Those are actually wrong.

    Stacking in the case of 5 to Glock would be firing

    String 1 6 rounds on T1 then 4 rounds on T2.
    String 2 2 rounds on T2, 6 on T3 and 2 on T4.
    String 3 4 rounds on T4 6 rounds on T5.

    Its an old trick from IPSC standards and reduces the number of transitions per string and can help get you better scores.

    No stacking means you must fire 2 rounds per target per string on 5tG.

    ...and that's why those stages are usually virginia count. Good on ya for taking advantage of the Comstock stage rules.
