Scoring 5points for killing both targets, 2 points for killing one target or 0 points far failing to kill either. The trap angle does not alter as in single-rise shooting but is fixed near centrally to give the required flght and angles as required in Section 38 b and diagram 2.
Except where otherwise indicated the general regulations given for single-rise events in the rule book will normally apply. There are obvious differences in some instances and the following shall apply in respect of some particular regulations not quite so self evident.
