We have had a rifle team for many years, but until we got the Kongsberg Electronic Target System, we were just an average to good team. We bought a system that gave us feedback, but the problem with that system is that the feedback comes after you have already shot that position. Now, with receiving instant feedback from the monitors, giving you the exact measurements of your shot group, it has taken our team to the next level because we can make in progress adjustments, not after the fact.
Our scores have improved dramatically. It is not uncommon for our shooters to shoot a 100 in prone and nearing that in other positions. This is something our team has never done using previous systems.
We are no longer just competing locally with other teams, we look forward to the bigger regional and national competitions.
We cannot recommend this system enough. No more messy paper targets and scoring by hand or running through a scanner. It’s all instant feedback!! We can let our parents get online at home and watch their child’s scores as they shoot, all in real time. We are just in our second year of using this system and on average each of our shooters have improved by 20 points. We are by no means a national powerhouse, but who knows what the future will bring us.
