  1. The call was dropped gun. I don't think I can blame the prop. Prop had two cutouts one for the barrel and one for the stock. Both were rounded, so if you didn't put the barrel into the cut out it would slip to the side and fall same with the stock. I hit the stock cutout but missed ever so slightly the barrel cutout. I was just curious that the gun only fell half way to the ground (only the tip of the muzzle touching the ground) and it stayed perfectly pointed in the same direction I put it. After all 10 seconds is 10 seconds
  2. Hand was off the gun - but next time I will shout I meant to do that
  3. Rifle was open and empty, and didn't break the 170. What comes to mind is sometimes we stage rifles vertical with the butt touching the ground so it cant be considered dropped by just it touching the ground. Some people I have seen have let go of the rifle a little early and it drops butt down but by luck it comes to rest vertical against the prop where it was supposed to be staged, so there must be some additional considerations. I have also seen where a person sets down a rifle and it bounces into the air and by chance lands back on the table but not where they set it down. In both cases the rifle wasn't considered dropped. So what I would like to know what combination of things must happen to consider it dropped.
  4. Trying to learn all the nuances to the rules here. Finished with my rifle and was setting it down on a cradle the barrel slipped off and nose dived into the dirt the butt stayed in the rear of the cradle in the air (mainly because of the long barrel), leaving only the muzzle touching the dirt. The muzzle was pointed down range it just fell straight down with the butt remaining in the cradle. How do you decided when a rifle is dropped?
