Sweeping with PCC when moving to weak side.

Recommended Posts

I've observed many PCC shooters having a tendency to sweep the muzzle up range as they run to their weak side to a different shooting position on a stage.  Is this rule addressed?  I personally think is is a DQ under 10.5.2.  Is that a correct interpretation?

Absolutely a DQ!

At a match, any time any muzzle, not in a holster, goes uprange it's a DQ.

Yes, it's a DQ (10.5.2, if you need a rule number).  With the exception of the specific rules listed in the PCC rules addendum, any rule that applies to handguns also applies to PCCs.  It's something RO's need to watch for when running PCC shooters, just like watching muzzle direction carefully for a right-handed pistol shooter reloading while moving right-to-left on a stage.

Thank you for your input.  Those are my thoughts as well (DQ).

past the 180 = DQ ... same for PCC, same for rifle, same for shotgun.

Weren't they all DQed?  Was it a USPSA match?

It doesn't matter what gun you are using, the 180 rule applies to everything.

If there is no question on the 180 violation there should be no question on a DQ.

Really have to watch. A real problem with a rifle. It is so easy to forget and grab the rifle with the week hand a drag it past the 180.

That’s because they’re keeping the rifle in both hands, instead of something akin to this when moving toward the off-hand side:

Thank you MemphisMechanic for the information. I hope PCC shooters take note of how this is done.

Another option is how Scott Greene handles it at the start of Stage 3 Lucas Oil.

 

 

Then again at 2:27 but not quite so gracefully.  ☹️

3-Gunners learn this early and it quickly becomes second nature.
