  1. It only applies to Rifles from the LT to the staged position. Moving with a closed, cocked rifle during the course of fire or from the stage to the ULT will also still be a SDQ.
  2. I forgot to cock the hammer at all... I effectively slam fired it.
  3. By rule, there is no 'approved' way. Speaking as someone who has unexpectedly sent a round down range after levering in a round but neglecting to put the rifle on half-cock...I prefer to not do it that way...
  4. He has one free step before the BB traveling rule kicks in...
  5. MSV...Empty or live round in magazine or carrier of the long gun in which it was loaded after the next firearm is fired, or if last firearm, put down on the unloading table.
  6. I tell you what... folks can't really complain about standing in line at the loading table.
  7. MSV was earned when they shot the first round out of the pistol/rifle for the rounds loaded/left in the SG. Condition what was correctable up till that point. I'm standing in line at Walt Disney world and will let you quote the references.
  8. Were they sourced from J. Hornaday? https://www.buyrevi.com/index.php?l=product_list&c=13
  9. How about three months? https://www.sassnet.com/RAF.php https://www.sassnet.com/mercantile/referafriend.php
  10. Isn't it part of the charter for or TGs to be that communication layer? Communicate the Cowboy Action Shooting story locally/regionally to further the growth of the game Represent and support SASS, its philosophy, and its purpose to club members
  11. There is also a world champion page that has profiles of many of SASS's world champions. This one has not been updated with 2018 and 2019 results, however. https://www.sassnet.com/EoT/champions.php
  12. I know that SASS has always had really great themes for EOT each year. @Youngblood @Youngblood #60304 mentioned what could be a great theme, Shoulders of GIANTS. Dedicate that theme to some of the greats of the sport who have gone on. For those of you wanting to know more about China Camp: https://www.sassnet.com/HallofFame/ChinaCamp-HOF2004.php There are also some more profiles on some of the SASS HoF members: https://sassnet.com/Museum-Inductees-001A.php
  13. And, here is what was recently sent to the TgGs VOTING ITEM INFORMATIONProposed rule change:Eliminate the automatic Stage DQ penalty for leaving the loading table with a cocked rifle.In such instances, the shooter will be directed to point the rifle safely into the back berm, bring the hammer to full cock if it is in the half-cock/safety position, then pull the trigger.If no round is fired, the shooter will be directed to finish staging firearms in order to start the stage (No Call).If a round fires when the shooter pulls the trigger, the shooter will be assessed a Stage DQ and directed to proceed to the unloading table Current rules/penalties:Movement is not allowed with a loaded round under the hammer of any firearm. Movement is defined by the basketball “traveling” rule. Whenever a shooter has a loaded round under the hammer of a firearm in hand, at least one foot must remain in place on the ground. The first violation will result in a Stage Disqualification penalty. The second violation will result in a Match Disqualification penalty assessment. It is also not allowed to leave the loading table with a cocked, loaded firearm.SHB p.12 – Participant Conduct - Safety- Rifles may be staged with the magazine loaded, action closed, hammer fully down on the empty chamber (NOT the safety notch), with the muzzle pointing in a safe direction (adheres to the 170° rule).SHB p.15 – Safety and Handling Conventions - Rifles- Changing location/moving with a live round under a cocked hammer or firearm with the hammer down on a live round.- Changing location with a long gun with the action closed and the hammer cocked.SHB p.23 – Stage Disqualification Penalty (SDQ) Definitions:Cocked – hammer not fully down (full, half-cock or safety notch).SHB P.43 – Glossary of TermsHammer down – hammer fully down at its final resting position.Loaded Firearm – Any firearm with unfired round(s) in the action/chamber/magazine.SHB p.44 – Glossary of Terms
  14. Most clubs that I should around with have carts available at the range for new people or those that are traveling without their cart, usually by motorcycle!
