This self graded quiz is intended for all staff of the 2014 FNH Championships as well as the regular staff and shooters of York Izaak Walton. No only will studying the rules make you a better RO it will help you to be a safer shooter.
Use the rules to help you. Link to rules:http://www.lchico5u.com/FNH3G/Rules.pdf
Do not use the 2013 rules. A lot has changed.
Make the call, and cite the applicable rule for each scenario, then check the comments to see the answers. If you would like more clarification comment and ask.
#1 The shooter mistakenly shoots a piece of steel with a slug where he should have used shot. The distance to the steel was only 11 yards. What is the penalty?
#2 Can a shooter stage ammo?
#3 The shooter has an accidental discharge during a reload. What is the penalty?
#4 The shooter puts his shotgun in the designated long gun bunker, but he does so muzzle up (yeah, this actually happened last year). What is the penalty?
#5 The shooter's unloaded pistol falls from his holster retying his shoelaces while he is on deck. What is the penalty?
#6 The shooter doesn't like the call the RO has made and the CRO confirms. What is his recourse?
#7 The shooter has a 1-4x scope on his rifle for the pit stages, but when he gets up on the hill he decides to unmount the 1-4x and mount and use his pre-zeroed 4-12x. Is this allowed?
#8 The shooter bunkers his loaded rifle in a designated grounding container muzzle down, but the RO upon checking it finds the safety in between "safe" and "fire", and it's not clear whether it is on "safe" or not. What should he do?
Good luck, Howard
