  2. 8.3.6 “If You Are Finished, Unload And Show Clear” or “Unload and Show Clear” – If the competitor has finished shooting, he must lower his handgun and present it for inspection by the Range Officer with the muzzle pointed down range, magazine removed, slide locked or held open, and chamber empty. Revolvers must be presented with the cylinder swung out and empty.
  3. i'm not so sure. for example, if you ULSC without showing the RO and without getting the 'range is clear' command, and just leave the stage, i think it very well might be a dq. It could certainly lead to a lengthy discussion.If i have given make ready, and the competitor hasn't loaded yet but says he needs something from somewhere else, I still have him ULSC before he leaves the stage, because it is not enough to rely on my memory that he hasn't loaded yet. What rule would you use to DQ the competitor who left the COF with an UNLOADED firearm? As of now, there isn't one. If he won't ULSC after being given make ready, I don't know that it's unloaded. I would let the RM deal with it. Of course I would not just stand there silently and let him walk away, I'd be like "hey, you get back here and ULSC!" Telling the shooter to ULSC is tantamount to using the stop command, is it not? I'd take my reshoot in that case. wait, wut? sounds like you and I are talking about different things. I was talking about before the start beep. Thanks for clarifying. I thought this thread was discussing what a competitor could do if they discover they have no spare ammo AFTER the start signal.

If the RO stops prior to completion, it is a reshoot. Does the rule need to include leaving a COF with an unloaded firearm? Maybe. Maybe not.
  5. Also from the Glossary; Loaded Firearm ................A firearm having a live round, empty case or dummy round in the chamber or cylinder, or having a live or dummy round in a magazine inserted in the firearm. If the competitor had left the COF with an empty, holstered firearm to retrieve mags, there is no rule violation.
  6. At least now I know to stay thru the credits. I hate it when I wait and there is no teaser.
  7. I like the feel of 180 gr over 200 gr. If you can get 50 or so of the 200 gr for testing, see how they feel to you. You may or may not like them.
  8. At a state match a few years ago, I DQ'd a shooter for breaking the 180 on a drop turner. I know what I saw. There were 4 other ROs on the stage. Guess what? None of them were paying attention to the shooter. RM overturned my call. I know what I saw. Another shooter on that person's squad complained to the MD. That other shooter saw the 180 break, too. MD could do nothing, of course. I ran the shooter the second time and he was no where near breaking the 180 the second time around. My fault for not citing 11.1.2. to the RM, but I will never work for that RM again.
  9. I don't mean to come off as argumentative, but that is not what is written in the official rule book and until there is an official determination, it is not enforceable. "taken to mean, this is what you are allowed to say" from a class is simply not official. I always use the official commands. Agree with you that it is especially important when running international shooters and/or those with English as their second language. Saying the range is going hot could be interpreted as "Make Ready" by someone who only knows the official commands. How dickish would an RO feel for DQing someone who responds to "range going hot" when all they know is "Make Ready"? Seen it happen. Shooter was pissed even after it was explained in his native tongue what happened. He heard the RO speak. He was used to ROs saying MR or LAMR, as the case may be.
  10. I read 8.3 and it's sub paragraphs word for word last night before posting. 8.3 says what the official range commands are. Nowhere does it say an RO may utter ONLY the official range commands during a COF. It may be bad form, it may be unnerving to a shooter, but nowhere is it against the rules. I don't think it is necessary for ROs to call the range hot or tell people to put on their eyes and ears prior to each shooter starting a COF, but it is not against the rules to do so.
