Widder, SASS #59054 Posted July 24, 2011 Share Posted July 24, 2011 O.K., as always coming back from a match, my stage driver and I usually get involved in discussions either about the match or SASS rules/guidelines. So yesterday, we started talkin about Loading Table Officer responsibilities and what they can/can't OR should/shouldn't do at the LT. And an interesting topic arose: Can the Loading Table Officer ask the shooter to 'spin the cylinder' for their inspection before the shooter begins his/her loading process? Well, I checked the ROI guidelines and there ain't nothing there that says they can or should. They can count the rounds being inserted into the pistols and insure there is an empty cylinder (or place) in front of the firing pin. This act in and of itself should tell them that the cylinder was empty. But, should they ask the shooter to 'spin the cylinder' for them before the shooter loads their pistols? The only place I could find that mentions that an Officer needs to insure the cylinder is empty is at the Unloading Table.
