My partner did the same thing and also felt he had hit the target. The next time we encountered a "flat" target was on an incoming shot about 8' off the ground and the same thing happened. I was sure I hit it but it just went into a spinning motion, We asked the guy that was loading targets and he said that sometimes if you only hit the edge of the target it will not break but will go into a flat spin. Is that possible ??
An update on the "edge spinning"
Last Tuesday we shot the same course as mention above an encountered no unusual spinning episodes... Of course the fact that we broke all the targets may have had something to do with that....Just chalk the first episode up to something from "The Twilight Zone"

I agree.
