Safety

Shooter, Manager, Coach and RO attention is drawn to the following safety related ISSF rules which should be used for all meetings.
It is strongly recommended that they also be used as safety best practice during all training sessions.
(note "Safety Flags" are what is commonly known in the UK as "Breach Flags")

6.2.2.2 Safety flags must be inserted in all rifles, pistols and semi-automatic shotguns at all times other than during authorized dry firing or live firing on a firing point. The purpose of safety flags is to visibly demonstrate when gun actions are open and guns are unloaded. To demonstrate that air rifles and air pistols are unloaded, the safety flag must be long enough to extend through the full length of the barrel.
• If a safety flag is not used as required by this rule, a Jury Member must give a WARNING with instructions to insert a safety flag in the gun.
• If the Jury confirms that an athlete refuses to use a safety flag as required by this rule and after being warned, the athlete must be disqualified.

6.2.2.4 When placing a gun down to leave the firing point or when firing is complete, all guns must be unloaded with actions (bolt or locking mechanism) open and safety flags inserted. Before leaving a firing point, the athlete must ascertain and the Range Officer must verify that there is no cartridge or pellet in the gun’s chamber, barrel or magazine and a safety flag is inserted.

6.2.2.7 The handling of guns is not permitted and safety flags must be inserted when any personnel are forward of the firing line.

Target Heights

To answer a recent query, target heights for 3P Air Rifle, both Precision and SAR, can be found in SAR rules - follow link from opening page for full copy.
The UK heights are the same as the USA rules, from which our rules were extracted, with the minimuim of modifications necessary for UK needs, i.e.

5.5.4 Target Heights
Target holders on the range must facilitate the placement of the targets at the correct height.
Correct target heights, when measured from the level of the firing point to the centre of the target
are:
Prone position 0.5 meters (19.7 in.) (± 10 cm. or 4 in.)
Standing position 1.4 meter (55 in.) (± 5 cm. or 2 in.)
Kneeling position 0.8 meters (31.5 in.) (± 10 cm. or 4 in.)

Free - Computer Based Training

The website http://www.eurosimulator.com has a number of shooting simulation programmes - I avoid the word games - that are excellent for teaching and practicing aiming etc. (I would appreciate any feedback from those who try it).

Shooting SAR in Postal Leagues

When shooting SAR in Postal Leagues all NSRA and individual leagues rules apply.

The following additional "Best Practice" is also recommended ~

League Organiser -
Accept entries in the normal manner.
Allocate shooters to divisions etc, as per your normal routine,
using SAR averages if shooter has both a precision and an SAR average
In all documentation add, after the shooters name , " (SAR) "  -  e.g. J.Bloggs (SAR).
Require the witness for shot cards to endorse SAR on the cards
and sign to confirm SAR rules complied with.

Shooters -
On initial entry declare you are shooting "Sporter Air Rifle".
Submit your SAR ave. for ranking purposes if you have both a precision and an SAR ave.
When shooting ask your witness to not only witness complance with normal postal rules,
but also SAR rules, and then to endorse & sign all cards as SAR rules complied.
Send an email copy of results to the SAR Manager - see above.
