Why do USPSA/IPSC shooters double tap their targets?

eta: Is it required?

I shoot IDPA which is slightly different but....

Many (most?) courses of fire call for two hits on target. The double tap is a result of this. My club will often change it up to 3 or to 1 on each then 1 more on each (tactical sequence).

Its not a double tap, its shooting twice at each target

As the saying goes, anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice....I think that is where the two hits on each target thing comes from.

Competitors will also tell you to shoot steel plates until they fall. Hitting your plate first is no guarantee that your plate hits the ground first. I've seen it happen too.
