Great video. I'm glad you gave the safety tip about not looking up. I've only pulled targets in the pits one time, but the guy I was pulling for hit the top of the berm I was standing behind. Its a good thing I was wearing a hat and glasses otherwise I would have had a shower of sand in my eyes.

No impact berm at Camp Perry other than Lake Erie so looking at the target is the only option for slow fire - Eyewear needed.

Jim Owens has a CD called "pit and line procedures" on his website for a small fee. It was a great asset to me when I started shooting XTC HP matches.

Not to take away from the video on YouTube.

I was going to record footage during an actual match with a good pit officer, or do a demonstration of various stages while in the pits with actual pit commands.

I just haven't had the time and opportunity to get to the range (weather).

I could record during the Navy Matches coming up in April...

Great job making these videos. Just one question, where is the location of the range where the videos were filmed. Thanks very much.

Would have liked to see that some years ago
 
My Guard platoon was assigned to pit duty for qualifications a number of years ago.We didn't get much guidance beforehand. Just kind of thrown in to it. I got hit in the cheek by what I assume was a fragment. Didn't do any damage, but it sure hurt like hell.

Flying pieces is one reason why clubs with pits do not people using staples to attach targets to the backing. Wallpaper paste only.

Puling targets
 
At Camp Perry, in the 60s, I remember sand being sprayed down our necks, bollows and granny's drawers for a complete miss.
