BLASPHEMOUS Steel Match - Rule Change

PLEASE READ:
Rules specific to multi-gun:
The shooter may start with any gun. If the first gun to be used is a long gun or pistol the start position will be gun loaded, at low ready below their first target. At the start signal all other guns will be flat on table, loaded, and safety on.As a shooter finishes with one gun he must place the gun on the table (never a holster) in a safe condition (either completely empty, or safety engaged) pointing downrange.
The safety of a previously used gun must be on prior to picking up the next gun.  The penalty for not doing so is a Stage DQ with a resulting stage score of 90 seconds.  The shooter may not shoot any remaining strings of that stage for any purpose.  The shooter may continue the match.
The shooter only has to be concerned about the Stop Plate with the last gun he will use.  The targets shot with previous guns may be engaged in any order.  The Stop Plate appropriate to the last gun used must be the last plate shot.

Match Structure:

The basic rules will remain the same for those shooting one gun, except they will only be shooting 4 strings.  Only three will count for score.  Start positions and penalties are the same.
Pistols and rifles will use the Steel Challenge plates and they will be painted white as in the past, and shotguns will use a second grey set of plates that may display movement, but will not need to be manually reset.  Both sets will have a designated stop plate.
If a shooter is using 2 guns he will only shoot 3 strings and the best 2 will count for score.  Any two guns may be used i.e. shotgun and pistol, or shotgun and carbine, or pistol and carbine.
If a shooter is shooting 3 guns he will only shoot 2 strings, and only one will count for score.  The 3 guns used must include a pistol, a shotgun, and a carbine.

Rules specific to multi-gun:
The shooter may start with any gun. If the first gun to be used is a long gun or a rimfire pistol the start position will be gun loaded, at low ready, and pointed at the flag.
If the first gun to be used is a centerfire handgun the start position will be wrists above shoulders, and handgun loaded and holstered.
At the start signal all other guns will be flat on table, loaded, and safety on, with the exception of centerfire handguns which will always start in holster, safety on.
As a shooter finishes with one gun he must place the gun on the table (never a holster) in a safe condition (either completely empty, or safety engaged) pointing downrange.
The safety of a previously used gun must be on prior to picking up or drawing the next gun.  The penalty for not doing so is a Stage DQ with a resulting stage score of 90 seconds.  The shooter may not shoot any remaining strings of that stage for any purpose.  The shooter may continue the match.
The shooter only has to be concerned about the Stop Plate with the last gun he will use.  The targets shot with previous guns may be engaged in any order.  The Stop Plate appropriate to the last gun used must be the last plate shot.

July 21st Action Matches

On Sunday, July 21st we will be having 2 matches at York Izaak Walton.  You may sign up for either or both.  Please read the entire email before signing up, and be sure to send your sign up email to the correct email address.

Back pits match:  5 stages.  You may use pistol only, carbine only(normal pistol calibers), or rifle and pistol in a multi-gun format.  I'm not encouraging 22lr because it may not some of the steel down that activates moving targets or the Texas star, but I'm not disallowing it either.  If you want to shoot the back let me know if you want to shoot it at 9:00 or 12:30, and whether you're shooting pistol, carbine, or rifle and pistol.  It will be helpful for squadding, but not absolutely necessary to tell me what division you'll be shooting and anyone you would like to be squadded with.  The match fee will be $20, and there will not be any kind of payouts.  I can only guess at round counts but I would think 100 of each would be more than enough, but I'd hate to run out, bring some extra. 200 if you're shooting carbine.   If you bring too much and don't want to drag it home I'll keep it for you.

Front pits match: 4 stages.  We're going to try something different this month.  You will need to have both a shotgun, and centerfire rifle (AR or similar) for this one. No pistol. The shotgun will be mostly shot, but there will be a few slugs needed.  Bring 75 shot and 10 slugs and you should have some left for me.  The rifle will be mostly under 50 yards, say 50 rounds worth, and some longer shots, maybe even an honest 200 yards I'm thinking 12 - 15 rounds minimum, but you know how that goes.  If you want to shoot the front let me know if you want 9:00 or 12:30 and what division you will be shooting as well as anyone you would like to be squadded with.  The match fee will also be $20, and there will not be any kind of payouts.

If you are shooting both the front and the back and don't care which order let me know that too and really makes squadding a lot easier if I have that leeway.

The sign up email for these matches is yorksignup@gmail.com  You will receive a confirmation email within a day or two if I got yours.

Be sure to read the previous post about our Steel Match on Saturday the 27th too.
