  1. The reason for this post is this seems to be a slightly gray area. Competitor comes to the line with a cased rimfire rifle or a PCC and the case is zipped closed. They place the cased gun on the table / barrel next to the shooting box. It is understood that 5.1.2 and 5.1.3 deal with casing / uncasing and they state: 5.1.2 "When casing or uncasing any firearm at the firing position, the muzzle of the firearm must always be pointed downrange." 5.1.3 "The on-deck competitor, if shooting a Rimfire Rifle or PCC, may unbag or remove their firearm from the 3-gun cart or case into a side berm or staging area provided the bay being used has sufficient side-berm space to permit this practice. Once the firearm is removed from the case or cart the muzzle must remain pointed reasonably vertical (up or down), at all times, with a chamber flag inserted, until the Make Ready command is issued." Appendix G / Glossary Gun Case/Bag A carrying device that does not allow access to, or manipulation of, the trigger while fully encasing the firearm. Handling (As in “handling a firearm”) The act of manipulating, holding, or gripping a firearm while the trigger is functionally accessible. Note exceptions for casing/uncasing PCC and rimfire. Appendix H7 - Rimfire Pistol Division 11 Handling requirements: Handgun to be transported in closed case or holstered at all times until the Make Ready command is given. Appendix H8 - Rimfire Rifle Division 11 Handling requirements: Rifle to be transported in a closed case, scabbard, or “3-gun” cart. Chamber flag must be used regardless of method of transport. Appendix H9 - Pistol Caliber Carbine Division 13 Handling requirements: Rifle to be transported in a closed case, scabbard, or “3-gun” cart. Chamber flags must be used regardless of method of transport. Exactly when can the competitor unzip their rimfire rifle / PCC case? It is clearly described in Appendix H7 for rimfire pistol as the Make Ready command, but what is meant by "Note exceptions for casing/uncasing PCC and rimfire." Is unzipping the case considered "handling" the firearm and the competitor must wait until until the "Make Ready" command which is the start of the course of fire? If they do unzip before "Make Ready" is that Unsafe Gun Handling and a trip to the Dairy Queen? What if they come to the line with an unzipped case? Regards, BC
