Rules

We enforce a strict zero-tolerance policy. Ensuring safety is our top priority, and these rules are designed to safeguard both you and your fellow competitors. Please read below our safety briefing, which will be conducted before each event. Please note that this briefing may be updated, and all competitors are required to attend an on-site briefing before taking part in the event.

 

Firearm safety rules are critical and non-negotiable and must be practiced at all times. Failure to do so will result in an immediate disqualification from the event.

 

·  Treat all firearms as if they are loaded, at all times.

·  Always keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction.

·  Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire.

·  Before firing, be sure of your target, your line of fire, and what is in front and behind the target.

·  Absolutely no drugs or alcohol before or during events.

 

Ear and eye protection are required for participation.

 

Pistols must be kept in a hard, retention style holster. No soft/ cloth holsters will be allowed.

No chest holsters or inside waistband holsters.

Any Accidental Discharge, Negligent Discharge, or flagging of any competitor or RO will result in immediate match disqualification.

 

Hydrate. Always carry more water than you think you’ll need. We recommend you begin hydrating a few days before the event. If you suspect you are suffering from heat exhaustion or injury, inform the closest RO and wait for help or transportation. If you are in between shooting stations, notify the next passing runner to notify a Range Officer as soon as possible. As a competitor/ runner, if you see someone who appears to be struggling, check on them to see if they’re alright.

 

In the event of an emergency, provide immediate assistance and call 911. Notify the Match Director, Lead Medic, and declare a ceasefire on all stages. Remain in place and limit radio communication to essential traffic only. Competitors between stages should proceed to the next stage and begin their wait time upon arrival.

 

Remember, these events are for fun. It’s not worth risking the safety of you or other competitors for a faster time. Use your head, do the right thing, and let’s get after it.

 

Range Officers

 

·  Event Range Officers (RO) have the Match Directors’ (MD) full authority while on the course and have been fully briefed and vetted prior to the event.

·  An RO has the authority to recognize safety violations or reckless behavior and remove them from the course of fire as they see fit.

·  No arguing with any RO. Any dispute with an RO can be noted and the MD will determine final decision at a later time.

·  Any shooters that are at risk of heatstroke or injury may similarly be removed.
