Rule Change 2020 – Hammer back on Rifle

SASS approved a proposed rule change when a competitor arrives at the shooting line with the hammer on the rifle cocked. The old rule was an immediate Stage DQ. In the new rule, the RO will take the rifle and point it downrange into the berm and pull the trigger.  If a shot is not fired, the competitor will be allowed to proceed.  If a shot is fired, there will be a Stage DQ.
