    TO would only need to check this at the end of the stage.

    I have asked this same question before. Answer is cuz the rulebook says so.

    Shooters Handbook page 16 "Long guns will be emptied and discarded with their barrels pointed safely downrange. This condition may be corrected on the clock, prior to the next round being fired." So the whole issue of it leaving the shooters hands is moot because he corrected it before firing the next round, pistol in this case. If the shooter had decided to take the miss and continue, then the TO would check the rifle to assess penalty based on condition.
  4. If you die or are killed on active duty, your family gets a lump sum insurance payout. If you survive long enough to be medically retired (100% disabled), your family gets monthly payments for the rest of their lives. I have several friends who went through this, having the soldier medically retired at 100% disabled before their death makes a huge difference financially.
  5. After I short stroked and changed the hammer spring to a coil setup, my 73 misfired about 50%. Replaced the firing pin with the longer one and all is good now.
  6. H3ll ya ain't even gotta be there, it'll shoot the bad guy for ya and send a 911 call for the cleanup crew. Now they can blame the gun LOL.
  7. I load for my son who shoots a Uberti 73 carbine and a pair of NMV in .44 magnum. 200gr badman RNFP bullets over 4.5 gr Titegroup. I use exactly the same load in my 44WCF. Works excellent, no complaints from the Wartrace Regulators.
  8. Had exact issue with mine a couple months ago. Replaced the coil "return" spring fixed it. Your pictures look exactly like mine before replacing. The spring looks kinked.
  9. I have a 226 Legion and the P320XFive Legion. The 226 being double action has the short reset trigger, night sights, better grips and the frame has an additional cut below the trigger guard for the shooting hand 3rd finger. It is very comfortable to shoot. I would classify it as a high quality combat pistol. Tex Jones explained the 320xfive Legion, I'll just add it is my "competition" pistol. It is striker fired single action with no safety.
  10. My .257 Roberts has taken much game. First rifle, given to me by my father. Great flexability with 87g HP for varmits to 120g SP for deer. You got the right gun!
  11. I was watching that, blew my mind that they were so wrong.
  12. To add to TWs Murkiness, if an unfired shotgun round is a miss if you only fire 3 in a 4+ string, all targets hit. Then in the scenario where the flyer is missed by an unfired round (misfire, dud whatever you want to call it), would not the next shot be legal on the makeup target?
  13. The way it has been explained to me is in the Miss Flow Chart the statement "Did the shooter engage the targets in the correct order" should include "With the correct number of rounds". With shotgun KD targets to be engaged in no specific order when all the targets have gone down, you cannot call a miss because they are down. This points to a Procedural.
  14. No, miss can't cause a P... Now if you knocked down all 4 with those 3 rounds, then no miss. P cuz you didn't use the correct number of rounds.
  15. Do you count how many unfired shotgun rounds are in your belt after every stage and count them as misses? Of course not. As PWB points out, rifle and pistols are loaded with a specific number of rounds, you may reload an unfired or jacked out round, not for a missed fired round. Opposite for shotgun, you can reload for a missed fired round, hence the 4+, 4 being the minimum to knock down 4 targets. If you only fire 3 you did not engage with the correct number of rounds to complete the stage.
