    I was stationed in the UK from ’86 to ’92 and shot DTL several times. I remember the shooter gets more points for a first shot kill as opposed to a second shot kill, but didn’t remember the specifics. So I looked it up: The scoring of points is 3 points for first barrel kill, 2 points for a second barrel kill, 0 points for a lost target. A perfect score is therefore 100 targets each ‘killed’ with the first barrel, total 300 points. The 100/300 is a real achievement, the 4-minute mile or the 147 break of the trap shooter.

    I thought DTL was like ATA Trap and limited to 1 shot per target. Is that correct?
    If so, why was 2 shots taken in a few instances?
