  1. IIRC at my last count 33 certified RMs but I think there are some that don’t RM Majors anymore. Plus 10 RMIs. While I can’t say I’ve always been so adamant about the visible beyond the 180... I am now... And I have shot majors as a competitor where I wasn’t on staff and there was the same discussion points had here. RE it is on the competitor. I don’t agree with that.
  2. I can say for sure that major match stage reviews as submitted to NROI are highly discussed for 2.1.4... On one match I specifically said on paper I see a 180 issue on stage 2.. targets 3-6. I will add extra barriers to fix when we put them on the ground. And it was a major discussion point in the RM course. Just my quarter worth..
  3. M There are some interesting issues here... 1. WHAT does the WSB require? The phrasing is important.. . ie if it says reload AFTER array 1–then if you shoot array 1 and then reload but then re-engage array 1 you have then re-engaged array 1 and need to reload again... but if you shoot array 1 reload shoot array 2 then send a makeup on array 1 — it gets really squirrelly... you could do a reload to comply with the WSB, but it won’t affect your time.... cause you won’t be firing shots... but an astute RO might assign procesurals for failure to comply with the WSB... 10.2.2 or if it says engage array 1 and then reload before engaging array 2.. this is a real gamer statement... you could fire 1 shot at ARRAY 1, reload and then engage the rest of 1 and 2... In the end... the WSB is very important.....
  4. I dropped a note to Troy... Let’s see what he says... maybe we will get a rule edit...
  5. The first sentence clearly says OUTSIDE the shooting area then says wholly beyond the shooting area... so does being inside the shooting area meet that??
  6. Ok... I would simply say— RO— read the entire rule.. Now please call the RM... The read the entire rule was told to me time and time again in the past... This rule is based off the first sentence... The rest is supporting arguments...
  7. The rule ONLY addresses standing on a wall support that is OUTSIDE the shooting area... If it is INSIDE the shooting area this rule for a penalty would not apply... But— if you see 10.3.7 So WSB May now contain- climbing on or standing on support structures is NOT permitted. There is your punitive rule...
  8. If it is non-existent then you are touching whatever is underneath the non-existent element. AKA the ground... And since you fire a shot. It is one penalty per shot fired up to the maximum scoring hits in that area per 10.2.3 That is what I would tell a competitor at a match I RM... I think you are reading too much into it.
  9. Correct there is no procedural... there is no FTDR in USPSA.. Only said for the moving away from start position...
  10. Check It does restrict moving without RO approval
  11. Let me make sure I understand this... You are standing in the start position within reach of a port that is just and open/close port. The port does not activate anything. And the RO said if you open or close it during the make ready it is a procedural?
  12. CZ is right... and I’ll add... rule says if found without an RO will take you to a safe area and take appropriate corrective action...
  13. Well it’s kinda required to keep up with stuff like this as an RM... ;-) Ken Nelson posted a method on how to handle this on the PractiScore blog.. I don’t have that link handy.... but if you want I’ll find it shortly.
  14. https://uspsa.org/documents/minutes/20170228.pdf Check this...
  15. This was in a BOD minutes post... It was in 2017 IIRC... let me look around....
