  1. Let's be the Match Director

    While I certainly have shot with 10 many times, answer this yourself 3 spotters 1 TO 1 Shooter 1 loading With the other 4, what jobs are you going to choose to not do ?
  2. Dillon SL 900

    Assuming that all the parts are included and that it is in pretty new condition, then i will take it. I will pm you tomorrow. If there is any known problem with it, then please pm me the details.
  3. Dropped long gun penalty change?

    As long as the shooter has contact with the firearm, it is considered as still in their control. No call should be made until the firearm comes to rest—wherever that may be. Then determine the condition of the firearm at rest and whether or not the 170° safety rule was ever broken on its way to its final resting point in order to assess the proper penalty (if any at all).
  4. Dropped long gun penalty change?

    Any unloaded gun dropped during a stage will result in Stage Disqualification. Dropped unloaded guns away from the line will be a no call. A shooter is forbidden from picking up a dropped gun. The Range Officer will recover the gun, examine it, clear it (if necessary), return it to the shooter, and assess the penalty. A dropped loaded gun is a Match Disqualification. An open, empty long gun that slips and falls after being set down and does not break the 170° safety rule or sweep anyone will result in either a “Prop Failure” call or a 10-second Minor Safety Violation, depending upon the circumstance.

  7. Sharing Pistols

    "And I was enjoying sneaking up behind and lifting my pistols from her holsters after she left the unloading table. " even if he "checked" them when he got them , she would get the penalty because she had already left the unloading table. It would however, keep away all of the problems of trying to dq him when he got to the loading table.
  8. Black Gold Shootout 2017!

    Just limit your black water usage. Use the restrooms and shower at the range.
  9. EOT Awards

    while buckle vs badge is a debate I will not get into here, but, I do not understand those that think the sticker part is "cheesy" So you would rather have an award buckle ( or badge ) that just said WINNER than one that actually says what you won ? I have a couple regional and world buckles that say winner. Almost hard to remember what I won or what place I was in. And talk about cost, if you engraved instead of using a sticker, that would be a big cost. maybe doable for EOT ( I do not know ) but for other levels this is not feasible.
  10. WTC Unfired Round, RO Coaching

    you can't "move on" to the next shot unless you actually tried to shoot. ( or in case of rifle, jack one out ) He holstered. did not slip hammer and go around or have a DUD. if dud, then he would have the "shooter choice"

    I'd try a different sd card reader on the computer.
