Bump Stock at Speed Steel

Recommended Posts

We had an interesting thing happen at our monthly match. A PCCO shooter stepped into the box, was given LMR commands, shooter ready, standby, beep...BRAAAAAT BRAAAT BRAAAAAAAT. The shooter swept all of the targets in three bursts of what we thought was fully automatic fire. The RO looked as puzzled as everyone else. We halted the course of fire and asked if his gun had broken. You could tell from his facial expression and body language that he knew exactly what he was doing and meant to turn some heads. Turns out, he was running a bump stock and had planned to use it the entire match. We asked him if it could be locked out, and he replied yes. The RO (and everyone else) told him to lock it out for the remainder of the match. He complied with the request until his final string on his final stage, to which he belted out one solid string of bumpfire nonsense sweeping the targets. 

 

He had already "removed" himself from the scoring by sitting out a stage or two, so he was given a no-score for the match. Aside from disobeying the orders of an RO by dumping on his final string, is there anything else that could have been handled more officially? I didn't see anything in the Steel Challenge rule book about bump stocks, but the USPSA rule book specifically states a procedural for the first infraction, then a DQ for the second infraction. Are Steel Challenge rules tied to USPSA rules?

Per the 2019 SCSA Rulebook: Appendix H9 - Pistol Caliber Carbine Division.  Special Conditions:  4) Full auto, burst fire, mechanically aided bump fire, and binary fire will result in a procedural on the first instance, and a disqualification for any subsequent occurrences, (unsafe gun handling)
