Coaching: Coaching during the scoring portion of a match will not be allowed.

Safety: Safety will be of paramount importance in all activities and at all times. All rifles will have actions open with magazines removed and an empty chamber indicator inserted into the chamber, except when on the line during the preparation period or during firing. For the safety of the pit crew, at the discretion of the match officials, a competitor who fails to hit the target within SEVEN SHOTS or fails to hit the target consistently may be directed to stop firing. For purposes of this rule, an oblong hole from a ricochet does NOT count as a hit.
