I’m reading over the newest rules trying to help a buddy answer a question. He has a tri Star CZ wannabe that is on the production list. His gun is single action only with a safety. Can he star with the hammer cocked and the safety on?

Appendix D4

 

Special conditions: 1. Only Double Action, Double Action/Single Action, and Safe Action/Striker Fired handguns are allowed, and must be on the approved list.  When in the ready conditions as specified under 8.1, a gun with an external hammer must be hammer down.  A hammer is considered to be in the "hammer down" position when the hammer is placed there by pulling the trigger while manually lowering the hammer (manually decocking) or by activating the decocking lever if present.  Manually decocking to the half-cocked position is not allowed and will result in the competitor being moved to Open division.

As others have said, the answer to your question is no.

 

Appendix D4 for the Production Division, Special Rule #1 is where it requires that the handgun must start with the hammer down.

 

"Only Double Action, Double Action/Single Action, and Safe Action/Striker Fired handguns are allowed, and must be on the approved list. When in the ready conditions as specified under 8.1, a gun with an external hammer must be hammer down."
