Match Rules

Freestyle shooters follow Morro Bay Airgunners Freestyle rules (rule chart) for Piston and Pre-charge classes. For all others, AAFTA rules and classes apply.

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.

Target Malfunction Procedures:
If a reset string breaks, call a marshal to repair it.
A shooter may lodge a protest if they feel 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 4fpe pistol to check for proper function. The protestor may accompany the marshal during the test.
3. If the target does not fall from a clean test shot, 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 a clean test shot, the competitor must move on.

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.
