In a staple match, everyone puts a buck into the kitty and a single staple into the center of each target. When the line is called, the first to shoot away their target’s staple wins. It has to be completely gone.
We tried one of these in Slow Fire with three very highly placed High Masters along with the rest of us.
As the “Ready on the right” cadence was called, these three looked at each other, one of them grinned and the race was on.
All three broke their first shot very quickly and at nearly the same instant. Still in synchronization, all three bent down to look in their scopes.
Zurek gleefully announced, “Got it!”
I don’t think I’d broken my first shot yet.
We don’t do those anymore.
