  1. FWIW: Some of the comments on this (and the linked discussion thread) are in response to questions regarding firearm handling procedures that are affected by installation of the device. Others (e.g. de-cocking mid-stage issues) are replies to "WtC?" inquiries and the application of rules that apply with no exceptions related to the modification.
  2. "Hard interpretations" without an application of common sense based on the reason for the convention (i.e. preventing movement with a live round under the hammer) are why the exception was written into the "preamble" of that section. The provision to override a convention via stage instructions applies as long as the action required is safe. The original list of Stage Conventions contained a few items that could NOT be safely overridden...those were subsequently removed.
  3. Sounds like the Black Badge PIN Instructor could benefit from a refresher course (or, at least, a more thorough study of the SHB)
  4. In case of miscount while loading a rifle at the LT requiring unloading the rifle completely, the options are: 1) Lower the hammer on each round in order to lever them out or 2) Remove the magazine endcap.
  5. Just borrow a revolver and ammo from another shooter to finish the match. No penalties (except maybe for any misses incurred while shooting an unfamiliar firearm) Then buy a LEGAL backup for the category.
  6. Are you suggesting that he carry the broken revolver for the remainder of the match and just take the misses for "unfired rounds" on the rest of the stages?
  7. We used one of these for starling and pigeon control around the grain receiving facility. Powered by canned Freon, it would shoot almost a solid stream of BBs. Worked fine until one of the guys hooked it up to the air line used to blow chaff away from the wheat pit. Forgot to use a regulator and blew the thing up!
  8. Custom Bowie made by Peter Bromley for Diamond Dick. Sheath by Gene Brown (Old Pueblo Leather)
  9. IMO, YES. The intent of the rule is to prevent allowing any ammunition to "tilt out" away from the shooter's body.
  10. REF: SHB pp. 12-13 - "PARTICIPANT CONDUCT" also p.23 - "STAGE DISQUALIFICATION PENALTY (SDQ)"
  11. I've seen it ONCE (at a major match), but it wasn't the swept shooter that made an issue of it. The LTO observed a shooter sweep the foot of another shooter while holstering a loaded revolver.. The MDQ call was made.
  12. In regard to the application of the rule prohibiting wearing a SG slide over SG loops, then yes...the terms are interchangeable. If a "gunbelt" has loops used to carry ammunition, it is also considered an "ammo belt"; same as slipping a revolver holster onto an ammo belt.
  13. It is one of a Territorial Governor's duties and responsibilities to communicate information to his/her club members. The minutes of that meeting were posted on ALL SASS forums (including the TG Wire). The entire transcript was posted on this forum as well:
  14. I ordered some Marlin parts from Long Hunter Shooting Supply on Monday (9th) and picked them up at the PO today. Springs & one-piece firing pin kits, and safety replacement screws.
  15. ......................................... ILLEGAL .............................................................................................................. LEGAL ...................................................
  16. The reason shotshell slides are not allowed to be worn over SG loops is because that sets the ammo out & away from the shooter's "contour". Wearing one over a belt buckle + multiple layers of belt (first photo) does the same thing...as does the leather "block" built into the slide in the second photo. It is also illegal to stuff anything behind the belt to push the ammo out from the body.
  17. From your description, it was probably not in compliance with the rules. Here are a couple of examples of illegally worn slides:
  18. The RO1 & RO2 Courses both cover the RO positions and duties in more detail. Those course materials are "official documents" and are often utilized for more detailed reference.
