Zombie Shooting Game
This Zombie Shooting Game is designed to test the
shooter's ability while shooting under pressure. The premise is that two
zombies (starting at 50 feet away) are running towards the shooter and are
going to eat his brains. The shooter must initiate the motion of the target,
then load his gun and place two shots in each of the zombie's brains before
the zombies reach you.

range with motorized moving targets that can be shot at when moving towards

Initiate movement of the target towards the shooter.
Shooter loads his gun and fires at the zombie heads as the target
moves towards him. If needed, shooter reloads while the zombies are
still moving towards the shooter.
After shooter places two rounds into each of the zombie's brains, the
shooter puts his gun down and stops the motion of the target (if
possible). The distance stopped is recorded.
The next shooter takes his turn.
The shooter who shoots both zombies at the farthest distance wins.
This shooting exercise forces you to practice a variety
of shooing skills under pressure. The action of initiating the motion of the
target distracts the shooter from the zombies. The shooter then has to load
and shoot, then reload and shoot some more. If both zombies don't have two
rounds in each of their heads before the target reaches you, you lose the

Zombie Shooting Game
The game is a lot harder than it sounds. I played the Zombie shooting game
with a friend last week we both would have ended up zombies ourselves (being
unsuccessful in placing a bullet into their brains). Even the
range master at the shooting range tried it without success. It makes
you realize that shooting with distractions and at a moving target with time
limitations is totally different than target shooting.
Things That I Would Change About The Game
Setting the target zombies at 50 feet is too far
away. You just end up wasting ammunition at that distance. Start at 35
feet instead of 50 feet.
Change two bullets into their brains to one bullet
in the brain. One is hard enough.
The first magazine should have one or two rounds in
it instead of five and you should start with the first magazine
installed in the gun without a round in the chamber (to simulate real
