pipe syslog records to a script

In syslog.conf I have these 2 lines.
local0.* | exec /usr/local/bin/ipf.table
The security log file is being populated and working fine.
Now I want to pipe the same log records to a script for processing.
The ipf.table script looks like this
$1 >> /var/log/ipf.table.log1
$@ >> /var/log/ipf.table.log2
$* >> /var/log/ipf.table.log3
service syslogd restart
The ipf.table.log1, 2, 3 never get populated even though I see new
entries in the security.log file.
What am I doing wrong here?
Thanks for your help.
