2021 Shooter’s Handbook Update: Make your own Pocket RO Card

SASS HQ just updated their Shooter’s Handbook v25.1 for 2021. I’m not seeing a changelog for it yet–although in the SASS Wire Palewolf Brunelle has said one is coming.

What I have noticed, however, is there is an updated Pocket RO Card (page 41).

I like to make my own laminated version of the Pocket RO Card to keep with me on the range. I’ve found that Scott Self-Sealing Laminating Pouches, 43/8″ x 63/8″ are the perfect size with which to laminate the Pocket RO Card…but some care has to be taken with the method of printing.

On my PC, I download the PDF version of the Handbook and open it using Adobe Acrobat. I then print only the page containing the Pocket RO Card, and choose to Fit the text to the standard 8.5″ x 11″ paper. Using the Fit option in the Print dialog box produces the appropriate size card–once cutout–to nearly perfectly fit the laminating pouches. See my screenshot below of the options I select in the Print dialog box.

I hope you find this tip helpful! In just a few matches’ worth of having my laminated Pocket RO Card it’s already come in handy a few times. I highly suggest keeping one with you for those occasions where there is confusion regarding a particular rule.
