SINGLE ACTION SHOOTING SOCIETY™ SASS Range Operations Basic Safety Course

APPENDIX B THE 10 “COMMANDMENTS”

  • Safety

  • Keep it fun

  • Use common sense

  • The benefit of the doubt goes to the shooter

  • Treat everyone as you would like to be treated

  • Treat everyone equally (Sam Colt made us that way)

  • Keep the stage moving (if a problem arises, take it away from the firing line)

  • Make sure all the assignments are covered

  • Coach when needed

  • Keep it simple

SCORING

It is recommended SASS matches be scored by an overall ranking system. This scoring system equalizes the difference in stages and rewards the most consistent shooter. Using this system, the recommended stage disqualification score is 999.00 seconds and the recommended match disqualification score is 999.99 seconds on all stages. The recommended score for not finishing a stage is a Stage Disqualification.

Other scoring systems may be used at state and local levels, such as overall time. If overall time is used, a maximum allowed time for each stage should be calculated prior to the match to be used as the disqualification score and maximum stage score. It is recommended the maximum time allowed for a stage be a total of all the available targets/miss penalties plus 30 seconds.

SASS Sanctioned Championships at the State level or higher may not sell or incorporate in any other manner any score enhancing items such as “Free Misses” or “Do-Overs.”

PENALTY OVERVIEW

5-SECOND PENALTIES Rifle, revolver, and shotgun targets must be engaged with the appropriate type of firearm. A “miss” is defined as the failure to hit the appropriate target type using the appropriate type firearm. Target placement should always allow a shooter the opportunity for a clean miss to be scored without argument. Overlapping targets of the same type should be avoided if at all possible and should not cause a Procedural “trap” by making it difficult to determine the shooter’s intent when engaging the targets.

  • Each missed target.

  • Each unfired round.

  • Each target hit with an incorrect firearm, either intentionally or by mistake.

  • Each target hit with “illegally acquired” ammunition.
