Default Electronic Target tutorial

With the New England Games coming up does the CMP have a tutorial for the electronic target system for those that have not used them yet. I'd like to get a heads-up as to not slow down the relays. Eddie

Hopefully someone who has used them can speak up. You may want to look in the most recent edition of the CMP rule book for course of fire with E-targets.

I shot them at Talledega. Took only a minute or two to understand them. Most of the controls are done from center line. You just shoot and look.

I don't know if the portable ones work differently.

Is there a delay for shots during rapid fire, or are people shooting their two shots and spying the monitor during the reload?

I used them at Camp Perry for the first time ever this year. I was worried due to a lot of the negative press.
I was flabbergasted at the efficiency and accuracy and ease of use.
I am not a "techie" and even I figured it out within minutes as Frank C above mentions.
I was immediately and happily a fan of E-Targets and can't wait for their use more and more and more.

Yes, at Perry (CMP Cup; end of June and for the EIC on the last day after the Cup) there seemed to be no delay in rapids and it felt like cheating to look at the screen to see where your first two impacts were before you shot your final 8 rounds.

Little to no learning curve, just make sure to "clear" the target before each course of fire. At Butner they had a techie or two walking around in case of any issues/questions. At one point, our display froze up and the tech rebooted it.

Thank you for the confirmation.

Take a look:
My 1st time using them I thought I'd have questions; after 2 shots I realized I had NO questions.
In a match I am pretty sure the ROs will manage the targets (lower 200 and raise 300, etc.), so you just shoot.
Here is the deal:
You shoot, hit the target. Shot 1 (top right) will be filled in and you will see the shot on the target. Shoot again ans #2 is filled in, all the statistics update and of course shot 2 appears on the target. I don't know how fast you can shoot, but probably faster than you can, or will be able to shoot. At the end of every 10 shots take a pic with your phone, the screen will reset for the next string. I think there is a way to go back and see the strings, I never bothered to try.
Couldn't be easier.
There are buttons outside of this view, they access the menus; you can change the target image, change from 200-300-600, etc. No need to push any, it will work best if you leave it alone. Again, the RO will probably manage all the functions in a match.
The 31 in the top left is the target number.

Here is what I was shooting that day. A coworker is trying to skip out of the office this Wednesday for a repeat performance.....

The ones used in the travelling games are tablets. They are not hard wired like the ones a TMP.
But the ease is the same...................
Though in bright sun light.... the screen can fade out alittle.............

Thank you all for your responses. Looks like they're easier to use than my cell phone. Eddie
