SINGLE ACTION SHOOTING SOCIETY™ SASS Range Operations Basic Safety Course

To help understand this concept, a “MISS FLOW CHART” is found in Appendix C. It is also good to understand “A MISS CANNOT CAUSE A PROCEDURAL.”

10- SECOND PENALTIES Procedural Penalties

Any unintentional procedural errors caused by “brain fade,” confusion, ignorance, or mistakes (not to exceed one for any given stage).

  • Failure to attempt to fire a firearm.

  • Failure to attempt a prop or stage maneuver.

  • Shooting targets in an order other than as required by stage description.

  • Engaging the stage (firearms, targets, or maneuvers) in an order other than as required by the stage description.

  • Failure to adhere to the guidelines of the category in which you are competing.

  • Firing any firearm from a position or location other than as required by the stage description.

  • Use of "illegally acquired" ammunition (i.e. NOT carried to the line/staged by the shooter in an approved manner) Minor Safety Penalties

  • Not leaving a long gun action open at the end of the shooting string or before the next firearm is fired.

  • Leaving empty or live rounds in magazine or carrier of the long gun in which it was loaded.

  • Loading more than the correct number of live rounds in a firearm.

  • Not returning revolvers to leather unless otherwise specified.

  • Open, empty long guns that slip and fall but do not break 170° safety rule or sweep anyone.

  • Retrieving a dropped “dead” round.

  • Cocking a revolver before it reaches 45 degrees downrange.

Accommodations are always allowed for those unable to comply with specific stage procedures due to physical limitations with no procedural penalties assessed.

STAGE DISQUALIFICATION

  • Any dropped unloaded gun on the firing line (from the loading table to the unloading table).

  • Long guns that slip and fall and break the 170° safety rule.

  • A discharge striking anything five to ten feet from the shooter. Note: Exception under item 13 Appendix A

  • Violation of the 170° safety rule/ Failure to manage appropriate muzzle control.

  • Returning a revolver to leather with hammer not fully down on spent round or empty chamber.

  • A cocked revolver leaving the shooter’s hand.
