Safety On?
« on: May 15, 2018, 04:23:04 PM »
Start position is loaded gun on the table.
All ammo for course of fire must be on the table.
Standing behind table, hands relaxed at sides.


Does the safety have to be on?

(Course description makes no mention either way)

Good question - thanks to Gaston, that one issue I don’t have to worry about!

What do you 1911, DA/SA and revolver guys say?
"a pretty quick hit is better than a lightning-fast miss."

8.1.2.4  With  respect  to  Rules  8.1.2.1  and  8.1.2.3,  the  term  “safety” 
means the primary visible safety lever on the handgun (e.g. the
thumb  safety  on  a  “1911”  genre  handgun).  In  the  event  of 
doubt,  the  Range  Master  is  the  final  authority  on  this  matter.
This  safety  must  be  on  while the firearm  is  loaded
in  the holster or loaded in any other location stated in the WSB
(e.g.:
table start, in a drawer, etc).in order to be in compliance  with  10.5.11
"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian."
