CHAPTER 7: Match Management
7.1 Match Officials
The duties and terms of reference of Match Officials are defined as follows:
7.1.1 Range Officer (“RO”) – issues range commands, oversees competitor compliance with the written stage
briefing and closely monitors safe competitor action. He also declares the time, scores and penalties
achieved by each competitor and verifies that these are correctly recorded on the competitor's score sheet
(under the authority of a Chief Range Officer and Range Master).
7.1.2 Chief Range Officer (“CRO”) – is the primary authority over all persons and activities in the courses of fire
under his control, and oversees the fair, correct and consistent application of these rules (under the authority
of the Range Master).
7.1.3 Stats Officer (“SO”) – collects, sorts, verifies, tabulates and retains all score sheets and ultimately produces
provisional and final results. Any incomplete or inaccurate score sheets must be promptly referred to the
Range Master (under direct authority of the Range Master).
7.1.4 Quartermaster (“QM”) – distributes, repairs and maintains all range equipment (e.g. targets, patches, paint,
props etc.), Range Officer appliances (e.g. timers, batteries, staplers, staples, clipboards etc.) and Range
Officer rations (under direct authority of the Range Master).
7.1.5 Range Master (“RM”) – has overall authority over all persons and activities within the entire range, including
range safety, the operation of all courses of fire and the application of these rules. All match disqualifications
and appeals to arbitration must be brought to his attention. The Range Master is usually appointed by and
works with the Match Director, however, in respect of IPSC sanctioned Level IV or higher matches, the
appointment of the Range Master is subject to the prior written approval of the IPSC Executive Council.
7.1.6 Match Director (“MD”) – handles overall match administration including squadding, scheduling, range
construction, the coordination of all support staff and the provision of services. His authority and decisions
will prevail with regard to all matters except in respect of matters in these rules which are the domain of the
Range Master. The Match Director is appointed by the host organization and works with the Range Master.
7.2 Discipline of Match Officials
7.2.1 The Range Master has authority over all Match Officials other than the Match Director (except when the
Match Director is actually participating as a competitor at the match), and is responsible for decisions in
matters concerning conduct and discipline.
7.2.2 In the event that a Match Official is disciplined, the Range Master must send a report of the incident and
details of the disciplinary action to the Match Official's Regional Director, the Regional Director of the
Region hosting the match, and to the President of the International Range Officers Association (IROA).
7.2.3 A Match Official who is disqualified from a match for a safety infraction while competing will continue to be
eligible to serve as a Match Official for the match. The Range Master will make any decision related to an
official's participation.
7.3 Appointment of Officials
7.3.1 Match organizers must, prior to commencement of a match, appoint a Match Director and a Range Master to
carry out the duties detailed in these rules. The nominated Range Master should preferably be the most
competent and experienced certified Range Official present (also see Rule 7.1.5). For Level I and II matches
a single person may be appointed to be both the Match Director and the Range Master.
7.3.2 References in these rules to Range Officials (e.g. "Range Officer", "Range Master" etc.), mean personnel
who have been officially appointed by match organizers to actually serve in an official capacity at the match.
Persons who are certified Range Officials, but who are actually participating in the match as regular
competitors, have no standing or authority as Range Officials for that match. Such persons should therefore
not participate in the match wearing garments bearing Range Official insignia.
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 18
CHAPTER 8: The Course of Fire
8.1 Handgun Ready Conditions
The ready condition for handguns will normally be as stated below. However, in the event that a competitor fails to
load the chamber when permitted by the written stage briefing, whether inadvertently or intentionally, the Range
Officer must not take any action, as the competitor is always responsible for the handling of the handgun.
8.1.1 Not applicable.
8.1.2 Self-loading Pistols:
8.1.2.1 “Single action” – chamber loaded, hammer cocked, with external safety engaged.
8.1.2.2 “Double action” – chamber loaded, hammer fully down or decocked.
8.1.2.3 “Selective action” – chamber loaded, hammer fully down or decocked, or chamber loaded and
hammer cocked with external safety engaged (see Divisions in Appendix D). For both this Rule
and Rule 8.1.2.1, the term “safety” means the primary visible safety lever on the handgun (e.g. the
thumb safety on a "1911" genre handgun). In the event of doubt, the Range Master is the final
authority on this matter.
8.1.2.4 If a handgun has a decocking lever, that alone must be used to decock the handgun, without
touching the trigger. If a handgun does not have a decocking lever, the hammer must be safely and
manually lowered all the way forward (i.e. not just to a “half-cock notch” or to another similar
intermediary position).
8.1.3 Courses of fire may require ready conditions which are different to those stated above. In such cases, the
required ready condition must be clearly stated in the written stage briefing. When a handgun ready condition
requires a handgun be prepared with an empty chamber, the slide of the handgun must be fully forward and
the hammer, if fitted, must be fully down.
8.1.4 Unless complying with a Division requirement (see Appendices), a competitor must not be restricted on the
number of projectiles to be loaded or reloaded in a handgun. Written stage briefings may only stipulate when
the firearm is to be loaded or when mandatory reloads are required, when permitted under Rule 1.1.5.2.
8.1.5 In respect of handguns used at IPSC Action Air matches, the following definitions apply:
8.1.5.1 "Single Action" means activation of the trigger causes a single action to occur (i.e. the hammer or
striker falls).
8.1.5.2 "Double Action" means activation of the trigger causes more than a single action to occur (i.e. the
hammer or striker rises or retracts, then falls).
8.1.5.3 "Selective Action" means that the handgun can be operated in either "Single Action" or "Double
Action" modes.
8.2 Competitor Ready Condition
This designates when, under the direct command of a Range Officer:
8.2.1 The handgun is prepared as specified in the written stage briefing, and is in compliance with the requirements
of the relevant Division.
8.2.2 The competitor assumes the start position as specified in the written stage briefing. Unless otherwise
specified, the competitor must stand erect, facing downrange, with arms hanging naturally by the sides (see
Appendix F2). A competitor who attempts or completes a course of fire where an incorrect start position was
used may be required by a Range Official to reshoot the course of fire.
8.2.3 A course of fire must never require or allow a competitor to touch or hold a handgun, loading device or
projectiles after the "Standby" command and before the "Start Signal" (except for unavoidable touching with
the lower arms).
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 19
8.2.4 A course of fire must never require the competitor to draw a handgun from the holster with the weak hand.
8.2.5 A course of fire must never require the competitor to re-holster a handgun after the start signal. However, a
competitor may re-holster provided this is accomplished safely, and the handgun is either unloaded or in a
ready condition stated in Section 8.1. Violations will be subject to match disqualification (see Rule 10.5.11).
8.3 Range Communication
The approved range commands and their sequence are as follows:
8.3.1 "Load And Make Ready" (or "Make Ready" for starts with an unloaded firearm) – This command signifies
the start of "the Course of Fire". Under the direct supervision of the Range Officer the competitor must face
down range, or in a safe direction as specified by the Range Officer, fit eye protection, and prepare the
firearm in accordance with the written stage briefing. The competitor must then assume the required start
position. At this point, the Range Officer will proceed.
8.3.1.1 Once the "Load and Make Ready" (or "Make Ready" for starts with an unloaded firearm)
command has been given, the competitor must not move away from the start location prior to
issuance of the "Start Signal" without the prior approval, and under the direct supervision, of the
Range Officer. Violation will result in a warning for the first offense and may result in the
application of Rule 10.6.1 for a subsequent offense in the same match.
8.3.2 "Are You Ready?" – The lack of any negative response from the competitor indicates that he fully
understands the requirements of the course of fire and is ready to proceed. If the competitor is not ready at
the "Are You Ready?" command, he must state "Not Ready". It is suggested that when the competitor is
ready he should assume the required start position to indicate his readiness to the Range Officer.
8.3.3 "Standby" – This command should be followed by the start signal within 1 to 4 seconds (also see Rule
10.2.6).
8.3.4 "Start Signal" – The signal for the competitor to begin their attempt at the course of fire. If a competitor fails
to react to a start signal, for any reason, the Range Officer will confirm that the competitor is ready to attempt
the course of fire, and will resume the range commands from "Are You Ready?".
8.3.4.1 In the event that a competitor inadvertently begins shooting prematurely ("false start"), the Range
Officer will, as soon as possible, stop and restart the competitor once the course of fire has been
restored.
8.3.5 "Stop" – Any Range Officer assigned to a stage may issue this command at any time during the course of
fire. The competitor must immediately cease firing, stop moving and wait for further instructions from the
Range Officer.
8.3.5.1 When conducting Standard Exercises, and/or when two or more courses of fire share a common
shooting bay or area, Range Officials may issue other interim commands on completion of the first
string or COF, in order to prepare the competitor for the second and subsequent strings or COF
(e.g. "Reload if required and holster"). Any such interim commands to be used must be clearly
stated in the written stage briefing.
8.3.6 "If You Are Finished, Unload And Show Clear" – If the competitor has finished shooting, he must lower his
handgun and present it for inspection by the Range Officer with the muzzle pointed down range, magazine
removed, slide locked or held open, and chamber empty.
8.3.6.1 If the Range Officer does not actually see the chambered projectile fall from the chamber, he must
take or order whatever action he deems necessary to ensure that no competitor leaves the COF
with a projectile still inside the gun. If necessary, a rod or other tool may be used.
8.3.7 "If Clear, Hammer Down, Holster" – After issuance of this command, the competitor must not resume
shooting (see Rule 10.6.1). While continuing to point the handgun safely downrange, the competitor must
perform a final safety check of the handgun as follows:
8.3.7.1 Self-loaders – release the slide and pull the trigger (without touching the hammer or decocker, if
any).
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 20
8.3.7.2 Not applicable.
8.3.7.3 If the gun proves to be clear, the competitor must holster his handgun. Once the competitor's
hands are clear of the holstered handgun, the course of fire is deemed to have ended.
8.3.7.4 If the gun does not prove to be clear, the Range Officer will resume the commands from Rule 8.3.6
(also see Rule 10.4.3).
8.3.8 "Range Is Clear" – Competitors or Range Officials must not move forward of, or away from, the firing line
or final shooting location until this declaration is given by the Range Officer. Once the declaration is made,
officials and competitors may move forward to score, patch, reset targets etc.
8.4 Loading, Reloading or Unloading During a Course of Fire
8.4.1 When loading, reloading or unloading during a course of fire, the competitor's fingers must be visibly outside
the trigger guard except where specifically permitted (see Rule 8.1.2.4 and 8.3.7.1), and the firearm must be
pointed safely down range or in another safe direction authorized by a Range Officer (see Section 10.5).
8.5. Movement
8.5.1 Except when the competitor is actually aiming or shooting at targets, all movement must be accomplished
with the fingers visibly outside the trigger guard and the safety should be engaged. The firearm must be
pointed in a safe direction. "Movement" is defined as any of the actions below:
8.5.1.1 Taking more than one step in any direction.
8.5.1.2 Changing shooting position (e.g. from standing to kneeling, from seated to standing etc.).
8.6 Assistance or Interference
8.6.1 No assistance of any kind can be given to a competitor during a course of fire, except that any Range Officer
assigned to a stage may issue safety warnings to a competitor at any time. Such warnings will not be grounds
for the competitor to be awarded a reshoot.
8.6.1.1 Competitors confined to wheelchairs or similar devices may be given special dispensation by the
Range Master in respect of mobility assistance, however, the provisions of Rule 10.2.11 may still
apply, at the Range Master’s discretion.
8.6.2 Any person providing assistance or interference to a competitor during a course of fire (and the competitor
receiving such assistance) may, at the discretion of a Range Officer, incur a procedural penalty for that stage
and/or be subject to Section 10.6.
8.6.3 In the event that inadvertent contact from the Range Officer or another external influence has interfered with
the competitor during a course of fire, the Range Officer may offer the competitor a reshoot of the course of
fire. The competitor must accept or decline the offer prior to seeing either the time or the score from the
initial attempt. However, in the event that the competitor commits a safety infraction during any such
interference, the provisions of Section 10.3 may still apply.
8.7 Sight Pictures and Range Inspection
8.7.1 Competitors are always prohibited from taking a sight picture with a loaded firearm prior to the start signal.
Violation will result in a warning for the first occurrence and one procedural penalty for each subsequent
occurrence in the same match.
8.7.2 If match organizers also prohibit taking a sight picture with an unloaded firearm prior to the start signal,
competitors must be advised in the written stage briefing. Violation will result in a warning for the first
occurrence and one procedural penalty for each subsequent occurrence in the same match.
8.7.3 When permitted, competitors taking a sight picture with an unloaded firearm prior to the start signal must
only do so on a single target, to verify that their sights are prepared as required. Competitors who test a
targeting sequence or a shooting position while taking a sight picture will incur one procedural penalty per
occurrence.
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 21
8.7.4 Competitors are prohibited from using any sighting aid (e.g. the whole or part of an imitation or replica
firearm, any part of a real firearm including any accessories thereof etc.), except for their own hands, while
conducting their inspection ("walkthrough") of a course of fire. Violations will incur one procedural penalty
per occurrence (also see Rule 10.5.1).
8.7.5 No person is permitted to enter or move through a course of fire without the prior approval of a Range
Officer assigned to that course of fire or the Range Master. Violators will incur a warning for the first
offense but may be subject to the provisions of Section 10.6 for subsequent offenses.
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 22
CHAPTER 9: Scoring
9.1 General Regulations
9.1.1 Approaching Targets – While scoring is in progress, competitors or their delegate must not approach any
target closer than 1 meter without the authorization of the Range Officer. Violation will result in a warning
for the first offense, but the competitor or his delegate may, at the discretion of the Range Officer, incur a
procedural penalty for subsequent occurrences in the same match.
9.1.2 Touching Targets – While scoring is in progress competitors or their delegate must not touch, gauge or
otherwise interfere with any target without the authorization of the Range Officer. Should a Range Officer
deem that a competitor or their delegate has influenced or affected the scoring process due to such
interference, the Range Officer may:
9.1.2.1 Score the affected target as a missed target; or
9.1.2.2 Impose penalties for any affected no-shoots.
9.1.3 Prematurely Patched Targets – If a target is prematurely patched or taped, preventing the determination of the
actual score, the Range Officer must order the competitor to reshoot the course of fire.
9.1.4 Unrestored Targets – If, following completion of a course of fire by a previous competitor, one or more
targets have not been properly patched or taped for the competitor being scored, the Range Officer must
judge whether or not an accurate score can be determined. If there are extra scoring hits or questionable
penalty hits thereon, and it is not obvious which hits were made by the competitor being scored, the affected
competitor must be ordered to reshoot the course of fire.
9.1.4.1 In the event that patches or tape applied to a restored paper target are accidentally blown off by
wind, muzzle blast or another reason, and it is not obvious to the Range Officer which hits were
made by the competitor being scored, the competitor will be required to reshoot the course of fire.
9.1.5 Impenetrable – The scoring area of all IPSC scoring targets and no-shoots is deemed to be impenetrable. If a:
9.1.5.1 Projectile strikes wholly within the scoring area of a paper target, and continues on to strike the
scoring area of another paper target, the hit on the subsequent paper target will not count for score
or penalty, as the case may be.
9.1.5.2 Projectile strikes wholly within the scoring area of a paper target, and continues on to strike down
a rigid target, this will be treated as range equipment failure. The competitor will be required to
reshoot the course of fire, after it has been restored.
9.1.5.3 Projectile strikes partially within the scoring area of a paper or rigid target, and continues on to
strike the scoring area of another paper target, the hit on the subsequent paper target will also
count for score or penalty, as the case may be.
9.1.5.4 Projectile strikes partially within the scoring area of a paper or rigid target, and continues on to
strike down another rigid target, the fallen subsequent rigid target will also count for score or
penalty, as the case may be.
9.1.6 Unless specifically described as "soft cover" (see Rule 4.1.4.2) in the written stage briefing, all props, walls,
barriers, vision screens and other obstacles are deemed to be impenetrable "hard cover". If a:
9.1.6.1 Projectile strikes wholly within hard cover, and continues on to strike any scoring paper target or
no-shoot, that shot will not count for score or penalty, as the case may be. If it cannot be
determined which hit(s) on a scoring paper target or no-shoot are the result of shots fired through
hard cover, the scoring paper target or no-shoot will be scored by ignoring the applicable number
of highest scoring hit(s). N
9.1.6.2 Projectile strikes wholly within hard cover, and continues on to strike down a rigid target, this will
be treated as range equipment failure (see Section.4.6). The competitor will be required to reshoot
the course of fire, after it has been restored.
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 23
9.1.6.3 Projectile strikes partially within hard cover, and continues on to strike the scoring area of a paper
target, the hit on that paper target will count for score or penalty, as the case may be.
9.1.6.4 Projectile strikes partially within hard cover, and continues on to strike down a scoring rigid target,
the fallen target will count for score. If a projectile strikes partially within hard cover, and
continues on to strike down a rigid no-shoot, the fallen no-shoot will count for penalty.
9.1.7 Target sticks are neither Hard Cover nor Soft Cover. Shots which have passed wholly or partially through
target sticks and which hit a paper target or which strike down a rigid target will count for score or penalty, as
the case may be.
9.2 Scoring Methods
9.2.1 The written stage briefing for each course of fire must specify one of the following scoring methods:
9.2.2 "Comstock" – Unlimited time stops on the last shot as recorded by the timer and/or Stop Plate, unlimited
number of shots to be fired, stipulated number of hits per target to count for score.
9.2.2.1 A competitor's score is calculated by adding the highest value stipulated number of hits per target,
minus penalties, divided by the total time (recorded to two decimal places) taken by the competitor
to complete the course of fire, to arrive at a hit factor. The overall stage results are factored by
awarding the competitor with the highest hit factor the maximum points available for the course of
fire, with all other competitors ranked relatively below the stage winner.
9.2.3 "Virginia Count" – Unlimited time stops on the last shot as recorded by the timer and/or Stop Plate, limited
number of shots to be fired, stipulated number of hits per target to count for score.
9.2.3.1 A competitor's score is calculated by adding the highest value stipulated number of hits per target,
minus penalties, divided by the total time (recorded to two decimal places) taken by the competitor
to complete the course of fire, to arrive at a hit factor. The overall stage results are factored by
awarding the competitor with the highest hit factor the maximum points available for the course of
fire, with all other competitors ranked relatively below the stage winner.
9.2.3.2 Virginia Count must use paper targets exclusively, and must only be used for Standard Exercises,
Classifiers or Short Courses.
9.2.3.3 Virginia Count must not be used in Level IV or higher matches except in respect of a Standard
Exercise (see Rule 6.1.2).
9.2.4 "Fixed Time" – Limited time, limited number of shots to be fired, stipulated number of overall hits to count
for score.
9.2.4.1 A competitor's score is calculated by adding the highest value stipulated number of required hits,
minus penalties. The overall stage results are not factored, and competitors are ranked by the
actual net points achieved by them.
9.2.4.2 Fixed Time must use paper targets exclusively and they should, where possible, be disappearing
targets.
9.2.4.3 Fixed Time must only be used for Standard Exercises, Classifiers or Short Courses.
9.2.4.4 Fixed Time must not be used in Level IV or higher matches except in respect of a Standard
Exercise (see Rule 6.1.2).
9.2.4.5 Fixed Time courses of fire do not incur failure to engage or miss penalties.
9.2.5 Stage results must rank competitors within the relevant Division in descending order of individual stage
points achieved, calculated to 4 decimal places.
9.2.6 Match results must rank competitors within the relevant Division in descending order of the combined total
of individual stage points achieved, calculated to 4 decimal places.
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 24
9.3 Scoring Ties
9.3.1 If, in the opinion of the Match Director, a tie in match results must be broken, the affected competitors must
shoot one or more courses of fire, nominated or created by the Match Director, until the tie is broken. The
result of a tiebreaker will only be used to determine the final placing of the affected competitors, and their
original match points will remain unchanged. Ties must never be broken by chance.
9.4 Scoring and Penalty Values
9.4.1 Hits on IPSC Action Air targets and no-shoots will be scored in accordance with the values approved by the
IPSC Assembly. (See Appendices B and C and below).
9.4.2 Each hit visible on the scoring area of a paper no-shoot will be penalized minus 10 points, up to a maximum
of 2 hits per no-shoot.
9.4.3 Each fallen rigid no-shoot will be penalized minus 10 points.
9.4.4 Each miss will be penalized minus 10 points, except in the case of disappearing targets (see Rules 9.2.4.5 and
9.9.2).
9.4.5 In a Virginia Count Course of Fire or a Fixed Time Course of Fire:
9.4.5.1 Extra shots (i.e. shots fired in excess of the number specified in a component string or stage), will
each incur one procedural penalty. Additionally, during scoring, no more than the specified
number and highest scoring hits will be awarded.
9.4.5.2 Extra hits (i.e. hits on the scoring area of scoring paper targets in excess of the total number
specified in the stage), will each incur one procedural penalty. Note that hits on hard cover and/or
no-shoots are not treated as Extra Hits.
9.4.5.3 If hits in excess of the total number required are visible on one or more targets, but the competitor
has not fired more than the number of shots required (i.e. Extra Shots), Extra Hit penalties will not
apply. If it is not obvious which hits were made by the competitor, he must be ordered to reshoot
the string or COF, as the case may be.
9.4.6 In a Fixed Time Course of Fire:
9.4.6.1 Overtime shots are shots fired at the targets after the signal to cease fire has been given. Overtime
shots will not count for score.
9.4.6.2 Where static scoring paper targets are used, it is assumed that overtime shots result in the highest
value hits visible on the targets, so these are ignored for scoring purposes. For example, on a stage
with 1xA, 6xC and 1xD hits, where 2 overtime shots have been fired, the 2 highest hits (i.e. 1xA
and 1xC) are ignored, with the final score being 5xC and 1xD hits.
9.4.6.3 Where static paper no-shoots are used, it is assumed that all hits occurred within the specified
time, and will count in the scoring process, subject to Rule 9.4.2.
9.5 Scoring Policy
9.5.1 Unless otherwise specified in the written stage briefing, scoring paper targets must be shot with a minimum
of one projectile each, with the best two hits to score. Scoring rigid targets must be shot with a minimum of
one projectile each and must fall to score.
9.5.2 If the projectile diameter of a hit on a scoring target touches the scoring line between two scoring areas, or
the line between the non-scoring border and a scoring area, or if it crosses multiple scoring areas, it will be
scored the higher value.
9.5.3 If a projectile diameter touches the scoring area of both a scoring target and a no-shoot, it will earn the score
and incur the penalty.
9.5.5 The minimum score for a course of fire or string will be zero.
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 25
9.5.6 A competitor who fails to engage the front of each scoring target in a course of fire with at least one
projectile will incur one procedural penalty per target for failure to engage the target, as well as appropriate
penalties for misses (see Rule 10.2.7).
9.5.7 Hits visible on a scoring paper target or no-shoot, which are the result of shots fired through the rear of a
paper target or no-shoot, and/or hits which fail to create a clearly distinguishable hole through the front of a
scoring paper target or no-shoot, will not count for score or penalty, as the case may be.
9.6 Score Verification and Challenge
9.6.1 After the Range Officer has declared "Range is Clear", the competitor or their delegate will be allowed to
accompany the official responsible for scoring to verify the scoring.
9.6.2 The Range Official responsible for a course of fire may stipulate that the scoring process will begin while a
competitor is actually completing a course of fire. In such cases, the competitor’s delegate must be entitled
to accompany the official responsible for scoring in order to verify the scoring. Competitors must be advised
of this procedure during the squad briefing.
9.6.3 A competitor (or his delegate) who fails to verify a target during the scoring process loses all right of appeal
in respect of scoring that target.
9.6.4 Any challenge to a score or penalty must be appealed to the Range Officer by the competitor (or his delegate)
prior to the subject target being painted, patched, or reset, failing which such challenges will not be accepted.
9.6.5 In the event that the Range Officer upholds the original score or penalty and the competitor is dissatisfied, he
may appeal to the Chief Range Officer and then to the Range Master for a ruling.
9.6.6 The Range Master’s ruling in respect of the scoring of hits on targets and no-shoots will be final. No further
appeals are allowed with respect to the scoring decision.
9.6.7 During a scoring challenge, the subject target(s) must not be patched, taped or otherwise interfered with until
the matter has been settled. The Range Officer may remove a disputed paper target from the course of fire
for further examination to prevent any delay in the match. Both the competitor and the Range Officer must
sign the target and clearly indicate which hit(s) is (are) subject to challenge.
9.6.8 Scoring overlays approved by the Range Master must be used exclusively, as and when required, to verify
and/or determine the applicable scoring zone of hits on paper targets.
9.7 Score Sheets
9.7.1 The Range Officer must enter all information (including any warnings given) on each competitor’s score
sheet prior to signing it. After the Range Officer has signed the score sheet, the competitor must add his own
signature in the appropriate place. Electronic score sheet signatures will be acceptable if approved by the
Regional Directorate. Whole numbers should be used to record all scores or penalties. The elapsed time
taken by the competitor to complete the course of fire must be recorded to 2 decimal places in the appropriate
place.
9.7.2 If corrections to the score sheet are required, these will be clearly entered onto the original and other copies
of the competitor’s score sheets. The competitor and the Range Officer should initial any corrections.
9.7.3 Should a competitor refuse to sign or initial a score sheet, for any reason, the matter must be referred to the
Range Master. If the Range Master is satisfied that the course of fire has been conducted and scored
correctly the unsigned score sheet will be submitted as normal for inclusion in the match scores.
9.7.4 A score sheet signed by both a competitor and a Range Officer is conclusive evidence that the course of fire
has been completed, and that the time, scores and penalties recorded on the score sheet, are accurate and
uncontested. The signed score sheet is deemed to be a definitive document and, with the exception of the
mutual consent of the competitor and the signatory Range Officer, or due to an arbitration decision, the score
sheet will only be changed to correct arithmetical errors or to add procedural penalties under Rule 8.6.2.
9.7.5 If a score sheet is found to have insufficient or excess entries, or if the time has not been recorded on the
score sheet, the competitor will be required to reshoot the course of fire.
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 26
9.7.6 In the event that a reshoot is not possible or permissible for any reason, the following actions will prevail:
9.7.6.1 If the time is missing, the competitor will receive a zero score for the course of fire.
9.7.6.2 If insufficient hits or misses have been recorded on the score sheet, those which have been
recorded will be deemed complete and conclusive.
9.7.6.3 If excessive hits or misses have been recorded on the score sheet, the highest value scoring hits
recorded will be used.
9.7.6.4 Procedural penalties recorded on the score sheet will be deemed complete and conclusive, except
where Rule 8.6.2 applies.
9.7.6.5 If the identity of the competitor is missing from a score sheet, it must be referred to the Range
Master, who must take whatever action he deems necessary to rectify the situation.
9.7.7 In the event that an original score sheet is lost or otherwise unavailable, the competitor's duplicate copy, or
any other written or electronic record acceptable to the Range Master, will be used. If the competitor's copy,
or any other written or electronic record, is unavailable, or is deemed by the Range Master to be
insufficiently legible the competitor will be required to reshoot the course of fire. If the Range Master deems
that a reshoot is not possible for any reason, the competitor will incur a zero time and score for the affected
course of fire.
9.8. Scoring Responsibility
9.8.1 Each competitor is responsible to maintain an accurate record of their scores to verify the lists posted by the
Stats Officer.
9.8.2 After all competitors have completed a match, the provisional stage results must be published and posted in a
conspicuous place at the shooting range by the Stats Officer for the purpose of verification by competitors.
9.8.3 If a competitor detects an error in the provisional results at the end of the match, they must file an appeal with
the Stats Officer not later than 1 hour after the results are posted. If the appeal is not filed within the time
limit, the posted scores will stand and the appeal will be dismissed.
9.8.4 Competitors who are scheduled (or otherwise authorized by a Match Director) to complete all courses of fire
in a match in a period of time less than the full duration of the match (e.g. 1 day format in a 3 day match
etc.), are required to check their provisional match results in accordance with the special procedures and time
limits specified by the Match Director (e.g. via a website), failing which scoring appeals will not be accepted.
The relevant procedure must be published in advance in match literature and/or by way of a notice posted in
a conspicuous place at the shooting range prior to commencement of the match (also see Section 6.6).
9.9 Scoring of Moving Targets
Moving targets will be scored in accordance with the following:
9.9.1 Moving targets which present at least a portion of the highest scoring area when at rest (either before or after
initial activation), or which continuously appear and disappear for the duration of a competitor's attempt at a
COF, will always incur failure to engage and/or miss penalties, except when Rule 9.2.4.5 applies.
9.9.2 Moving targets, which do not comply with the above criteria, will not incur failure to engage or miss
penalties unless a competitor fails to activate the mechanism which initiates the target movement.
9.9.3 Stationary targets which become partially or wholly concealed by action of a moving no-shoot or vision
barrier are subject to the same criteria above in respect of the application of failure to engage and/or miss
penalties.
9.10 Official Time
9.10.1 Only the timing device operated by a Range Officer and/or the Stop Plate included in the COF must be used
to record the official elapsed time of a competitor's attempt at a course of fire. If a timing device or Stop
Plate is deemed by a Range Officer to be faulty, a competitor whose attempt cannot be credited with an
accurate time will be required to reshoot the stage.

9.10.2 If, in the opinion of an Arbitration Committee, the time credited to a competitor for a course of fire is deemed
to be unrealistic, the competitor will be required to reshoot the course of fire (see Rule 9.7.4).
9.10.3 A competitor who reacts to a start signal but, for any reason, does not continue their attempt at the course of
fire and fails to have an official time recorded on the timing device operated by the Range Officer, will be
given a zero time and zero score for that course of fire.
9.10.4 When a Stop Plate is used in a COF, the competitor must shoot and hit the Stop Plate with his final shot,
failing which the competitor will receive a zero score for the subject COF.
9.11 Scoring Programs
9.11.1 The scoring programs approved by IPSC are the Match Scoring System (MSS) and Windows®️ Match
Scoring System (WinMSS). No other scoring program must be used for any IPSC sanctioned match without
the prior written approval of the Regional Director of the host Region. In the case of MSS and WinMSS the
most recent versions of the scoring programs available from the IPSC website are to be used.
