My fellow shooters:

This year at the TG convention there is a proposed agenda item that I need your input on. we will be voting on a change in the RO 1 manual.  Right now the rule states:

Ammunition dropped by a shooter in the course of reloading any firearm during a stage or "ejected" from a firearm may not be recovered until the shooter completes the course of fire. The round is considered "dead" and  may be safely recovered or must be replaced from the shooter's person or other area as required by stage description.  If the round is not fired it is counted as a missed shot. Staged ammunition dropped back where it was staged is not considered "dead".

The vote is to amend the rule to read:

Ammunition dropped by a shooter in the course of loading or reloading any firearm during a stage or "ejected" from any firearm may be SAFELY recovered or replaced from the shooter's person or any other area as required by stage description. If the round is not fired, it is counted as a miss.

This is from the RO 1 manual p. 19.

You will notice that the proposed rule does not do away with the safety aspect of the rule. As the shooter you have the option of retrieving the round that has been dropped or ejected or replacing it from your person. If you choose to retrieve the round and commit a safety violation you will be called for it. For example, if you break the 170 or sweep someone with the muzzle you will receive the appropriate penalty. This is just being revised to allow the shooter the option of retrieval of the round or replacing it.

Please contact me via email, telephone, or in person with your comments, ideas, and your opinion on this rule change. Thank you.
 
Your humble servant,

Turkey Creek Red
