WTC shots down range...

Recommended Posts

I bought my self a SDQ by putting down (staged on table) both cocked pistols to insert my ear protection after the first two gunfighter shots and re cocking.  I didn't think of anything but not shooting more shots with no ear protection.

 

SINGLE ACTION SHOOTING SOCIETY Shooter’s Handbook Page 23

STAGE DISQUALIFICATION PENALTY (SDQ)

A cocked revolver leaving the shooters hand

 

Reflecting on what I should do if it ever happens again are these responses a no call?

 

1.  Ask T.O. if I can de cock each pistol 6 times hammers down on spent chambers and stage revolvers while reinserting ear protection, pick up revolvers and continue. This will take a lot of time.

 

2.  Place one cocked revolver down on table but before removing grip hand contact revolver with other hand that has a revolver in hand, reinsert ear protection, grab revolver with free hand remove hand contacting staged revolver and continue.  this will take a lot less time.

 

3.  Stop shooting and take time with 22 misses.

 

I was amazed at how loud revolvers are with no ear protection.

Don't cock them when you realize you don't have your ear plugs is about all you can do.

 

#2 won't work because it is leaving your hand even though you are switching hands.

 

#3 would work but better to bite the bullet and shoot the guns that are cocked and then put ear plugs in.

Shoot one more round, safely place that revolver with hammer down on spent round on table. While keeping other cocked revolver under control,  use free hand to push earplugs in further, then continue stage. 

BTW you earned a MDQ, each revolver would be a SDQ, 2 SDQ's are MDQ.

Something tells me that you won't need to worry about it happening again any time soon. I'm sure that if you don't check, your friends on your posse will reminding you^_^

How is it annoying to remind posse members to be sure to have eyes (safety glasses on) and ears ( ear plugs in) on the first stage of the day? It works and helps as a reminder. Yelling out doesn't mean to yell at one's top volume but loud enough for all to hear. Really!?

Where did you say it was for the first stage of the day?

Have 3 sons who are multi-tour combat vets.

They all said that after the first few incoming rnds. They really didn't 'hear' them. More like the saw the impact.

Having served my own share of multiple combat tours, you may not hear the shots at the moment, but it sure takes awhile for the ringing to die down after it’s over.

I'll get fried for this but,,, at a local match as the TO I would tell you to start over if I see that issue,,, or if a shooter told me,, I'd tell them to decock , make safe and if they had the ammo reload and restart,, unfortunately that isn't an option,,,  but I'd still do it locally..  blaze away, I don't care

I was amazed at how loud revolvers are with no ear protection.

I continually ponder why, when I was young, I shot thousands of rounds of trap, probably that many more rounds with target pistols, hunting guns, and some big caliber rifles like. 416 Rigby or  .375 H&H mag.  I never wore any ear protection, in fact, I never even thought about it until about 20 years ago.  I never experienced displeasure. 

But now, without my ears in, the report of even a small caliber revolver or shotgun seems numbing and unbearable.   Is that a natural feature of the aging process, or is ammunition much, much louder now.  (I'm asking seriously).

Yes and no.  Local match, what's the harm in ignoring the rules just a little, we're here to have fun, right.  State match and as TO I failed to notice the Shooter came to the line with no shotgun shells.  When the Shooter tried to load their shotgun, looked down at their empty loops, by local match habit I handed them the shells I was carrying.  Bad on me.

Yes... but generally for TWO separate & distinct actions... I would call this as ONE incident.    RO Rule #4.

SASS does not require that monthly matches be ‘no alibi’ some clubs allow this.

The penalty for the OP scenario is a single SDQ for the single act of the cocked revolvers leaving the shooter's hands

Or nearly as loud as a 44 mag pistol in the early morning deer stand...…..lol. I have done it and just finished the stage. You could have laid them down (or holstered them) with the hammers on a spent cartridge addressed the ear plugs and then picked them up and continued on.
