4.6 Range Equipment Failure And Other Issues
The following rules dictate the procedures and criteria for range equipment failures and other issues at stages during a match.
4.6.1 Acceptable Range Equipment Failure
Range equipment must present the challenge fairly and equitably to all competitors. Range equipment failure includes, but is not limited to, the displacement of paper targets, the premature activation of metal or moving targets, the malfunction of mechanically or electrically operated equipment, and the failure of props such as openings, ports, and barriers.

The declaration and/or use of any firearm as range equipment is prohibited.
4.6.2 Procedure For Range Equipment Failure
A competitor who is unable to complete a course of fire due to range equipment failure, or if a metal or moving target was not reset prior to his attempt at a course of fire, must be required to reshoot the course of fire after corrective actions have been taken.
188.8.131.52 Unrestored Paper Targets
