Administrative Safety Rules
- No firearms will be loaded or carried “hot” while not involved in an event. No live firearms behind the firing line, in the administrative/spectator area. (except for non-competing law enforcement or event security)
- Firearms will be secured by the competitor or a support member at all times to prevent, theft, tampering, or loss.
- Loss of a firearm will result in a shut-down of operations until the firearm is found.
Major Safety Violations
A major safety violation is any violation of the 4 basic safety rules listed above. Any action with a firearm that puts another person at risk will be deemed a major safety violation and will result in immediate disqualification and removal from the competition. Any major safety violation will be investigated by the staff and/or judges.
Minor Safety Violations
Minor safety are violations of a tactical protocol, an err in order of engagement, loading out of order, or some action by the competitor that does not put another person in danger. This type of violation can be very subjective, but judges and staff are trained in the identification of safety violations. An accrual of three minor safety violations will result in a removal of the competitor from the competition.
