Match Rules

All shooters follow Morro Bay Airgunners Freestyle rules (rule chart).

Basic Break Barrel class is for any break barrel rifle with a factory stock (no Field Target stocks, no adjustable stocks). The class is configured so that rifles with non-AO scopes as low as 4x can still be somewhat competitive. Those with adjustable scopes must make any scope adjustments prior to the match. Scope can be pre-set for any distance and magnification prior to the match. Adjustments are taped and remain at that setting for the duration of the match. Laser range finders are allowed. Qualification for the BBB special class is at the Match Director's discretion

Equipment inspection and FPE testing may be done at the Match Director's discretion. In any matters arising and not covered by these rules, the Match Director’s decision will be final.

Targets will be checked each morning before the match with a WFTF calibrated target tester.

Target Malfunction Procedures:
If a reset string breaks, snags, or a target cannot be reset, call a marshal to repair it.
A shooter may lodge a protest if they are certain that a target failed to fall with a good hit. The procedure is as follows:
1. Immediately after finishing shooting a lane, the shooter must remain in place and protest if they feel that a target was malfunctioning.
2. Before proceeding, the other squad member calls a marshal who will shoot the target with a a WFTF calibrated target tester, to check for proper function. The protestor may accompany the marshal during the test.
3. If the target does not fall from a test impact, the marshall will repair or replace with a comparable target and retest to satisfaction. Only the shooter in the box that protested may reshoot the target.
4. *If the target falls from the initial test impact, the competitor's score is reduced by an additional penalty point for delay of game, and they do not get to reshoot the target.

Last resort - A target that cannot be repaired or replaced is removed from scoring for all shooters. It is crossed off the score cards. The announcement is made to all before shooting resumes.

*each competitor is allowed an unlimited number of protests as long as each protested target proves faulty. However, the competitor is only allowed one false alarm. After which, that competitor's protest privilege is suspended for the day.
