Starting a stage UNLOADED - can I have a magazine in hand?


Recommended Posts

So I'm looking at a few stages for an upcoming match and a couple of them have you start with an unloaded gun. One is UNLOADED HOLSTERED, the other is UNLOADED on a table while sitting in a chair. Neither specifies where your start mag is. Question - Can I start with a magazine in my hand or is there a rule saying magazines MUST be in pouches on belt? I'm shooting Limited if that matters...

5.2.4 During the course of fire, after the start signal, unless stipulated otherwise in the stage procedure, spare ammunition, magazines and/or speed loading devices shall be carried in retention devices attached to the competitor's belt and specifically designed for that purpose.
