Shotgun condition in cart

Recommended Posts

Building a new cart. Is it required that the actions be completely open when in the cart?  I seem to remember there being certain conditions where they could be closed, but can’t seem to find anything stating one or the other.

Open is not closed

There is no "completely open"

What Dawg said, but:

 

Pg. 18 of the shooters handbook: 

Long guns shall have their actions open with chambers and magazines empty and 
muzzles pointed in a safe direction when transported at a match.

 

 

 

You can also put them in a case or build your gun cart so you can enclose them like in a cabinet.

Allowing the "transportation" of a long gun "action closed" in a case, scabbard, or enclosed cart is up to the match directors of individual clubs/ranges.

 

REF also: SHB p.43 - "Glossary of Terms"

FWIW, depending on how your cart is, if movement or angle finds the action working it's way closed, inserting a bright dowel or sturdy ziptie at the very least is a hard visual check that the chamber is cartridge free, and the action physically unable to close. 

 

I am building my cart, and considering these things myself.

At the match directors discretion, see PWB's post above.

I shoot SxS shotguns. My cart just isn't set up well to transport the shotgun in it with action open. I cut two pieces of PVC pipe longer than the barrels. I dropped them into the empty barrels and drew a line around the top. Then I put the full length snap caps I have into the chamber, closed the action, dropped the PVC pipe in, and drew a line around the pipe again. Between the lines I painted it red. If unloaded you only see white on the PVC pipes. If the shotgun is loaded you see red. My problem was solved, and I have never heard a complaint from any of the local clubs that I shoot at. I also made the same barrel rods out of dow rods and used a red magic marker.

That's not a general SASS rule. This allowance would have to be approved by the Club.
