2.2. The broadcast should be organized in such a way that, through a specially prepared and installed near the target mirror, a close-up image of the target simultaneously appears on the camera lens (you could clearly see traces of projectiles), and the shooter himself at the time of shooting (see location scheme at the bottom).

* NOTE: Ensure that the target is firmly in contact with the metal plate so that when the projectile hits such a target, a characteristic metallic sound is heard and a clear mark remains, which can then be checked without error. In case of doubtful hits, the panel of judges reserves the right to evaluate such hits in the lower direction, as well as to cancel the shot or the entire round.
