First day on 50M biathlon range with new MX-W2. Was able to set up and calibrate on a metal or paper 50M Biathlon standing target. Played with multiple settings to try and get it to record 5 shots across a normal Biathlon target in 30 secs or less. Figured it was time setting for auto replay however turned it off and same issue. Most we could get it to record was 2 shots. Appreciate any comments if the device can actually be set to do a Biathlon shooting bout or was software not designed with Biathlon set-up options. I do have a Biathlon Scatt set up in my garage which works well however trying to record Biathlon shooting bouts during live fire biathlon training.

This was discussed recently, you should find it searching for 'biathlon'. The answer is that MX-02 and MX-W2 are not designed for nor compatible with biathlon shooting because they require a 'target detection reset' between two shots, which is achieved by moving the Scatt way out of line with the target (which is confirmed by the eye icon on the top-right screen corner switching to a barred icon). As long as the target remains in the sensor's field-of-view the software considers you are simply holding after your shot.
There has been some discussion about how the software could be improved with a biathlon mode. @Peter would be the right person to give more details.

The thread initially discusses rapids shooting then covers biathlon from this point on.
