Procedural: Unintentional errors caused by confusion or mistakes. If unable to comply with stage instructions due to physical limitations or handicap, the RO may make allowances for the shooter to complete the stage w/o penalty, adhering as closely as possible to the spirit of the game. 10 seconds; no more than one procedural penalty may be assessed per stage Failure to Engage/Spirit of the Game: Willfully shooting a stage other than the way it was intended in order to gain a competitive advantage, not meeting the Ammunition Power Factor or willfully disregarding a non-shooting procedure. 30 seconds Re-shoots are granted for failure of props/match equipment; Range Officer impeding shooter progress; or timer failure. Failure of shooter equipment or firearms may be granted at the discretion of the Match Director (except at annual or state/regional championships and above). Only safety penalties carry over. Restarts shall be allowed for a competitor to achieve a “clean” start, up to the point at which the first round goes down range. Multiple restarts by the same shooter, that in the judgment of the R.O. are seen to be taking advantage, will not be entertained as they are not in the spirit of the game.
