    To answer your question Travis yes you must shoot through a 21 inch abs pipe which is 1 and one half inch inside diameter. also a rest is permitted

    Does this have to be through a pipe as well? Also, it doesn't state whether it's permitted to use a stationary rest, although he clearly is.

      I added a rule re: stationary rests being permitted. Will let Doug respond re: the pipe.

    TO Dan And Robert on measuring the abs pipe which is plastic not metal i found it to be 1 and one half inch inside diameter and 21 inches long my error thanks for bringing this to my attention. I will now attempt this with a 1 inch pipe thanks.

    Robert - great catch. We've removed that criteria (clearly an error) and will ask Doug for proper specifics on the pipe's size.

    Didn't follow rule listed. pipe must be 1/4" diameter

    That pipe is definately more than 1/4" in diameter.
