I did a pre-game walkthrough today, and one of the stages the swingers are shootable at rest. 


Why can't I just attempt to plug them at rest then activate the,.. OR just fling a couple shots at the activators and more on? 


I don't know one thing or another about these things.. tomorrow will be the first time ever trying to shoot at one so.. Just curious.

Shooting them at rest will definitely go a long way in learning how to shoot swingers.

Shoot it the way you want, we'll score it the way we have to.

If there's a pineapple on the front stoop, it's game on.

Gaming your local club match? Bold move. Shows a lot of promise.

As a rule, I don't exploit stuff that I know won't be available at a bigger match. Unless there's prize money on the line, shoot the stage the way you're pretty sure it was designed, not out of some abstract sense of "designer's intent" but because that's the most effective practice (i.e. will give you the most true assessment of your abilities) you can get from that stage.

Go nuts! Cheat like crazy, then have a temper tantrum when you get caught. The score for you efforts will be shown in the page count when you get your very own shitbag thread.

Swingers... rules of engagement.

Swinger friend of friend: 2 condoms, purell.
Swinger stranger: no-shoot.

As long as it's within the rules shoot targets as they are available per the stage brief. You're not honor bound to shoot them a certain way based on what the designer intended, nor should you give a crap. If they wanted you to shoot it a certain way they should have constructed barriers.

Is it a local match? If yes, does it specifically say in the WSB that swingers must be activated prior to engaging? 

If the answer to both questions above is yes, then you may not shoot them while they are just sitting there. Otherwise, go nuts. It is rare to be able to engage moving targets before they are moving at a major match however, so if you would like to get the best training possible out of the local match scenario then activate first. Might as well utilize the training opportunity you have.
