  1. 1) Shooter stages cocked rifle with live/unfired round in the chamber. SDQ for moving from the LT to the stage w/rifle in that condition. SDQ for staging rifle in that condition (as soon as it leaves the shooter's hands) = MDQ for “Two SDQ violations on the same stage” – SHB p.24 2) Shooter stages cocked rifle with empty chamber. SDQ for staging the rifle with the hammer cocked (as soon as it leaves the shooter’s hands). No additional penalty for "changing location" (moving from the LT) under the rule change. 3) Shooter has cocked rifle "in hand" to start. Drop the hammer If chamber empty = NO CALL If chamber loaded = SDQ Applicable rules: - Staging or discarding a long gun containing a live round in the chamber (once it leaves the shooter’s hands). - … - 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 (exception for rifle from the loading table to the stage with no round chambered). SHB p.23 "STAGE DISQUALIFICATION PENALTY" Safety & Handling Conventions – Rifles - 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 Cocked – hammer not fully down (full, half-cock or safety notch). Hammer down – hammer fully down at its final resting position. SHB pp.44-45 “Glossary of Terms”
  2. Proposed 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. PASSED by vote of the Territorial Governors. YES - 208 (75.3%) NO -- 68 (24.6%) Effective January 2020
  3. For an "all weather" shooter: Raynor Scheine
  4. The 2019 "Winter Range TG Meeting" minutes have been posted up on the archives page.
  5. The "Rule Clarification Archives" page has been updated (and rearranged).
  6. The SHB includes a "Glossary of Terms" (i.e. definitions) in Section 9 (pp. 43-45)
  7. The "Rules Clarifications Archives" have been updated to the current SHB V.22.3 "Penalties Overview" ; as well as the rule refs in the "Reload Choices" doc. Thanks to Mid Valley Drifter for his assistance in maintaining the "RO Corner" page (no longer on the "super-secret" hidden site)
  8. A couple more 15BHN options (local): https://www.badmanbullets.com/OnlineStore/categories.php?cat=45+Caliber https://www.badmanbullets.com/OnlineStore/categories.php?cat=45+Caliber+Polymer+Coated+Bullets

  10. The rule books don't cover every possible scenario that might occur on a stage. The RO2 reference covers options in case of an actual failure of a target or prop...not necessarily one that is "shooter-assisted". In event of a situation that is not listed, the most fair and reasonable application is utilized. The shooter should not benefit from his own error (shooting the wrong KD) by being allowed to quickly dump all ten rifle shots on a single target... IMO.
  11. As in the previous "WtC?", it is not "target failure" if the SHOOTER is responsible for the unavailability of the target. Shooter should not get any time advantage for KDing the target for the 10th shot & simply continuing the dump on the stationary target.
  12. One miss (Pistol shot on rifle target) One "P" (All rifle shots HIT rifle targets...just out of sequence)
  13. #2 - imdb indicates two as "Hobey"...also in two episodes of "The Virginian"
  14. Same answer...that still looks like a "traditional design" bullet loop to me.
  15. Please resend...the application standards for the rules have changed a bit in the past few years.
  16. I would suggest comparing the specs of the .43 Spanish & the Turkish rounds to see if the longer brass could be trimmed back a few millimeters...after verifying the actual caliber with both chamber & bore castings. I've had both Spanish and Reformado chambered RBs...still have an 1879 Argentine Remington in primo condition, as well as an Egyptian carbine rechambered to .45-90. Good info on RB ammo on Track of the Wolf website: https://www.trackofthewolf.com/Categories/PartDetail.aspx/1171/1/CASE-43-SPANISH
  17. What is your suggestion for expediting the pre-match verification process? Aside from the task of convincing the WB and general membership that doubling the number of categories is a good idea?
