- On the line commands -
• “Make ready”. The RSO is instructing you that you may remove your gun from your case and load your gun. When your gun is loaded you should assume the low ready stance. We allow two types of the low ready stance. Either the gun must be pointed down at a 45 Degree angle, muzzle touching table, or you may use the compressed low ready stance with both elbows touching your sides, and the gun held at a 90 degree angle from the shooter’s body.
• “Shooters ready?” The RSO is asking you if you ready to shoot. You do not need to answer that you are ready. Unless you answer, “No”, the RSO will continue.
• “Standby” The RSO is informing you that he is about to blow the start whistle.
• “Beep!” At the sound of the whistle, the competitor may safely raise their gun and engage the targets.
• “STOP!” Any RSO may issue this command at any time during the course of fire. The competitor must immediately cease firing, and wait for further instructions from the RSO.
• “Unload and show clear” The RSO is instructing you to show that your gun is unloaded. Please present your gun to the RSO with the muzzle pointed downrange, magazine removed, slide locked back or held open, and the chamber empty. Revolvers must be presented with the cylinder swung out and empty.
• “Dryfire cleared weapon” While continuing to point the handgun safely downrange, the competitor must perform a final safety check of the handgun as follows:
Auto-loaders: Release the slide and pull the trigger, without touching the hammer, if any.
The gun MUST dry fire before the competitor can leave the firing line.
Revolvers: Close the empty cylinder.
If the gun proves to be clear, the competitor must case the gun.
If the gun does not prove to be clear, the RSO will resume the commands from “Unload and show clear” and the competitor will be disqualified for a negligent discharge.
