A MISFIRE is considered a MISS!
In the event of a misfire, you may either:
1 - Clean nipple/touchhole, reprime, and re-fire at target. In the event of another misfire, it will be considered another miss.
2 - Step off the firing line and to the side. Clean nipple/touchhole, reprime, and re-fire in a safe direction into the woods. If the firearm fires, this does not count as a shot. If the firearm misfires, this does not count as a miss. In the event of another misfire, please wait sixty seconds before removing ball and clearing bore. Return to firing line when ready to resume shooting.
Please note that whichever choice you make, the clock continues to run!
We are planning to supply each shooting station with a Range Rod and a CO2 Ball Extractor to eliminate the need to travel on the course with a loaded firearm!
