Rifle Shooting MB, target clarification

Recommended Posts

Im trying to understand the target practice requirements for the Rifle Merit Badge. For the .22 cal rifle it says:

Adjust sights to center the group on the target* and fire five groups (five shots per group). According to the target used, each shot in the group must meet the following minimum score: (1) A-32 targets - 9; (2) A-17 or TQ-1 targets - 7; (3) A-36 targets - 5.

Question:

Does this mean that each scout may use only one of the 3 listed targets or do they have to shoot all 3 targets?

Welcome to the forum James.  You may use one of the three types of targets listed.  You do not need all three.

A little off the OP's posting, but interesting from a historical viewpoint.  I found this shooting target in my troop's archives from when they were also an NRA junior club during WWII.
