Objective: The shooter must demonstrate the ability to quickly put decisive hits on multiple targets. 

Set Up: Three humanoid targets, T1, T2 and T3, will be utilized. Any realistic size humanoid target with a high value scoring area may be used (IPSC, IDPA etc.). Eight inch paper plates may be used to create a high value area on other types of silhouette targets.  T1 will be set 3 yards away and directly in front of the shooter. T2 is also at 3 yards but 1 yard to the left of T1. T3 will be 2 yards to the right of T1 and 5 yards away. A piece of high cover will be placed 1 yard to the right of the shooter. 

Ammunition: A total of 7 rounds will be fired. Five rounds will be loaded in the gun and a loading device or carrier (belt loops, 2X2X2 pouch, speedloader or speed strip) containing spare rounds should be available for a reload. Six shot revolvers may be used but they may only fire 5 rounds before reloading. 

Begin Exercise: Revolver in the holster concealed from view. On the signal and fire 1 shot to T1, 2 shots to T2, 1 more shot to T1, and a head shot to T2. MOVE to high cover, RELOAD (partial reload okay) and fire 2 shots on T3 to finish. 

Scoring: Paladin Scoring, low time wins. Penalties include 1 second for hits outside high value area, 2 seconds for a miss and 5 seconds for poor cover. Penalties added to raw time.
