Gun Divisions.

There will be two divisions in each match.  Standard or Open.  Basically, if you shoot standard with all your firearms (Includes standard manual in shotgun) then you are standard. If you shoot any one gun within a match other than standard, then you are Open.

Each match will recognise the winners, but we will also award Series Winners in the two divisions and categories.  By entering two or all three matches you are automatically entered into the Tournament Series.
