First topic message reminder :

The Rulez.
 
Your competition firearms are your life.  They are the best specimens of the best designs using the highest quality materials.  Improvements are done without question, maintenance is top notch and performed immediately after a match or practice session. 


If it is displayed that one of your competition firearms is substandard in any way, it shall be upgraded, repaired, or replaced. Immediately! Period!


The Value of the vehicle that delivers you to the match shall never exceed the value of the firearms you shoot in the match.  

Since your competition firearms are so valuable, thou shalt not trust safety of said firearms to the gorillas in the airline baggage handling department.  With that being said, the only acceptable method of transportation to and from matches are from said vehicle mentioned above.  Firearms shall not remain in unattended vehicle for a period greater then 30 mins, and shall be properly locked up and secured for that less then 30 minute duration.  When Hotels and other lodging is utilized, firearms shall be removed from vehicle and stored in sleeping quarters.  No exceptions shall be made to this rule, even when the vehicle is locked in a secured garage with electronic security systems and intruder alerts. 


.45 ACP matches are shot with .45 ACP caliber firearms and ammo. 
         22LR matches are shot with 22LR caliber firearms and ammo.
         Centerfire matches are shot with .45 caliber firearms and ammo. 
         Revolver matches are shot with .38’s, .357, .45, and in some instances 22LR.
         Bullseye shooters do not use .32 caliber firearms or ammo. 

Pistol boxes are used in one of two conditions: Totally organized or a complete disaster.  Select one.  


There are no scheduled matches too far away.

Your .45 caliber firearm will be a 1911 just as the good lord presented to his deciple John Moses Browning and commanded “Thou shalt slay thein enemies with this 1911 Caliber .45".


Magazines shall be inserted in the grip of the firearm just as the good lord intended with his 1911 masterpiece.  Thou shalt not put a magazine forward of the trigger guard.  


Stickers belong on pistol boxes, they do not belong on guns.  Wimpy Europeans put stickers on their guns and they only shoot wimpy 22LR firearms or .177 air guns.  Bullseye shooters shoot .45’s, 38’s and 22LR without stickers.  


Stickers on pistol boxes shall only display firearm manufacturers, equipment, and suppliers.  I do not care that your kid was on the honor roll at stumpy creek remedial middle school in 2005, put that sticker on your grocery getter.  Shooters displaying a “Gil Hebard Guns, Knoxville, Ill” on their gun box shall get a ½ point added to their bullseye score.  


Scores shall be calculated using a #2 pencil manufactured in the USA using old school math.  Calculations may be performed on the back of used targets if necessary and double checked.  The use of electronic calculators or cell phone apps is prohibited.  


Shooters shall secure their guns with lock and key at all times they are not competing or practicing.  Shooters shall not “loose” their guns.  If a shooter “looses” their competition firearm, they shall be prohibited from all future competition.  (see Stolen Guns Below).


While loosing a firearm is unforgivable,  having a competition firearm stolen is a infrequent, but tragic occurrence.  Shooters suffering from the theft of a firearm shall pursue said thief with the utmost of diligence.  They shall use all methods available to recover stolen firearms, including law enforcement.  Fellow competitors shall make every effort to assist victim in recovery of said firearm.  


Once a firearm is used in competition, that firearm will not be sold, gifted, or “Loaned Indefinitely” to another shooter. The competitor shall own and posess that firearm until death or retirement from the sport.  The only exception is that a firearm may be loaned to a fellow shooter for evaluation purposes for a specified length of time, not to exceed 30 days.  Competition firearms are acquired, competed with, cherished, and hoarded for eventual redistribution via inheritance to a deserving family member or younger, deserving shooter that competitor has mentored.  


Spotting Scopes:  Spotting scopes if utilized shall be ancient Bushnell Spacemaster in a generally deplorable condition.  Shooter will get ½ point added to his score if spotter is a ancient spacemaster with the rotating eyepiece to select various powers. The only exception is the aging shooter with diminished eyesight.  Said shooter may replace ancient spacemaster with current production high quality European spotting scope with a 50 mm objective diameter or less.  


Pistol Boxes shall contain firearms, ammo, spotting scope, spare parts, cleaning supplies, and ECI indicator only.  Extra items such as chewing gum, sunscreen, water bottles, insect repellent, bourbon flask, sandwiches, leftover pizza, etc. shall be carried in a separate rucksack.  


Pistol Boxes shall be transported from vehicle to the shooting line by carrying it awkwardly with a strap over the shoulder.  Pistol boxes shall not be insulted by being placed in a cart, wagon, stroller, or dolly.  


Thou shalt dry fire or live fire practice every day.


When competing, cell phones and other electronic devices shall be stored in vehicle under lock and key.  The only exception is if cell phone is used to broadcast bullseye commands via wired or bluetooth speaker and when operated as such, all external notifications shall be muted.  


Since Bullseye competition is a black and white sport, a shot is either a 9 or a ten, there are no 9 ½. Bullseye shooters shall conduct themselves in the most honest and straightforward manor.  We might be tenacious, we might be insistent, and we can argue if a specific shot is a nine or a ten but once a determination has been made we accept the determination and move on.  We understand that basic honesty is the keystone of this sport and shall avoid any individuals displaying anything less then stellar integrity. 


Absolutely everything on a competitors person shall be made available to a fellow competitor such that said competitor may compete in that match.  We are as a group, proud that we will lend our fellow shooters the ammo they need to beat the snot out of us.  


While we are gracious and humble in victory, we are also courteous and polite when we occupy the “First Looser” position or worse.  Congratulations are given to the winners since we all realize we are only competing with ourselves.

Let me add one rule:

The mass of a pistol box grows over time, and hits a constant, at which point the contents get divided into multiple trips to the line.

And one I tell everyone I score:


Check my addition!. I am not malicious, I am incompetent, so check my addition!

it is very embarrassing, I typically use count down scoring: add the points dropped and subtract that from 100. And for whatever reason, I get confused on which number is the dropped points, and which number is the score.

And:

If it were not for scoring at matches, I would no longer be able to add or subtract without a calculator.

I prefer the term "grammar enthusiast", and I did not delete my post Laughing
I was talking about the other self appointed "Grammar Enthusiast" with delusions  of grandeur!

Actually, from my observations, it is not the mass of the pistol box, it is the weight of the pistol box which once it exceeds 70 pounds, then the contents get divided into smaller packages which are individually carried to the shooting line.  

and the Addition/Subtraction errors are what makes the after match wrap up so exciting!

Keep up the good work there Slammy!
