All competitors will wear eye and ear protection (Rules 3.19 & 3.20) in the pits. All competitors will wear hearing protection on the firing line where eye protection is also highly encouraged. Competitors will score, work in the target pits, and assist the Range and Pit Officers as required. The use of plug type scoring gauges is restricted to the Pit Officer only.
Sighting Shots: Coaching during sighting shots is allowed to get the shooter on the target. All sighting shots must be recorded on the back of the score card.

Additional time may not be allowed for record shots if more than 5 sighting shots are fired.
