    WTC: Falling and dropped handguns.

    Without a penalty attached, a "rule" is only a "suggestion". If a shooter picks up a dropped firearm, s/he is liable for additional penalties regarding breaking the 170, as well as possibly sweeping others in doing so. Dropping an unloaded firearm (SDQ); then subsequently committing another SDQ offense = MDQ. The T/O is not subject to those penalties; which is one of the reasons for handling a dropped firearm in the proscribed manner. The amended verbiage (Goody's version) has been submitted for the next edit of the SHB (currently in progress).

    What would you do?

  4. PaleWolf Brunelle, #2495L


    As suggested earlier in this thread, if that is a known issue, then other methods of communication should be arranged prior to the stage engagement.

    WTC: Falling and dropped handguns.

    That is covered in the SHB on page 16.

    WTC: Falling and dropped handguns.

    It would probably be easier to just change "is prohibited from" to "should not be allowed to".

    Go back to page 5 (or start from the beginning)

    Seen it & actually heard it recommended as a "fix" for a train wreck stage. Watched a shooter almost fall off a raised shooting platform when the T/O stepped out of his way. Timer Operator PUT HIS HAND ON THE SHOOTER to keep him from falling off...shooter wanted a reshoot for "interference".

    WTC: Falling and dropped handguns.

    There is NO listed penalty. Do we want or need one? How about the SDQ for "unsafe firearm handling"...that would make 2 SDQs = a MDQ. ...or, if the T/O commanded the shooter to "STOP!" from picking it up = MDQ HMMMMM......?

    WTC: Falling and dropped handguns.

    SHB p.16

    NO...if the first round fired has not "gone downrange" (left the barrel), the shooter gets a RESTART. REF: SHB p.20

    The application of the proper penalty (MATCH DQ) for doing so should be a sufficient deterrent.
  13. PaleWolf Brunelle, #2495L


    That's another question that I'm going to have take to the ROC. Considering the procedures for handling a squib (SHB p.13/RO2 p.8), IF the squibbed bullet is cleared from the barrel by the next shot fired, the firearm is NOT "out of service"; as it would be if the shooter STOPPED (or was stopped by the T/O) immediately for a suspected squib. In that case (as with any revolver malfunction) the shooter would be allowed to reload the functional revolver to complete the stage. I will verify this.
  14. PaleWolf Brunelle, #2495L


    I was referring to the OP and the Bordertown ruling in which there was no doubt that there was a squib. Those are the circumstances that were considered by the ROC when we agreed on the "MISS" call. On page 5, I also mentioned "...five´╗┐´╗┐ pages of "but, what if...?" conjecture; most of which COULD, most likely, be handled by applying "benefit of doubt" to the call."
