Definition of “Fanning” – is manipulating the hammer anytime TWO hands are not engaged or anchored to each other. The ROC has come up with a formal definition to be included in the SHB Glossary of Terms: “FANNING: A handgun (revolver, pocket pistol, or derringer) shooting technique in which one hand controls the trigger and the other hits the hammer singularly or repeatedly without any part of the cocking hand remaining in contact with the handgun or the support hand.” (This technique is used extensively in fast draw exhibitions, and is illegal in Cowboy Action Shooting.)
ROC RULING re affixing R/P AMMO LOOPS ON SG LOOPS (Dec 2016) NOT "TRADITIONAL DESIGN" NOT ON THE LIST OF APPROVED "METHODS OF CARRY" (SHB p. 3) = NOT LEGAL. Applicable rule = “P” + misses for "Use of illegally acquired ammo" ADDENDUM: The ROC has previously clarified (and recently codified) that carrying ammunition in an illegal/unapproved manner is a "NO CALL" unless that ammo is actually USED for stage reloads (e.g. in a secured bandolier, hatband loops, buttstock loops, suspender loops, etc.): Note: Any ammo carried to the firing line in an illegal/unapproved manner that is actually used for stage reloads falls under the “Use of illegally acquired ammunition” penalties. SHB p.4 Further clarification: The entire slide itself is ILLEGAL with the R/P ammo loops (loaded or not) affixed to the SG loops; - Rifle/Revolver loops cannot be affixed to shotgun loops. SHB p.4 ...therefore ANY ammunition (including shotgun shells) used from that illegal equipment falls under the prohibition & penalties.
