CHAPTER 10: Penalties
10.1 Procedural Penalties – General Regulations
10.1.1 Procedural penalties are imposed when a competitor fails to comply with procedures specified in a written
stage briefing. The Range Officer imposing the procedural penalties must clearly record the number of
penalties, and the reason why they were imposed, on the competitor's score sheet.
10.1.2 Procedural penalties are assessed at minus 10 points each.
10.1.3 A competitor disputing the application or number of procedural penalties may appeal to the Chief Range
Officer and/or Range Master. A competitor who continues to be aggrieved may then lodge an appeal for
arbitration.
10.1.4 Procedural penalties cannot be nullified by further competitor action. For example, a competitor who fires a
shot at a target while faulting a line will still incur the applicable penalties even though he subsequently
shoots at the same target while not faulting the line.
10.2 Procedural Penalties – Specific Examples
10.2.1 A competitor who fires shots while any part of their body is touching the ground beyond a Fault Line will
receive 1 procedural penalty for each occurrence. However, if the competitor has gained a significant
advantage on any target(s) while faulting, the competitor may instead be assessed 1 procedural penalty for
each shot fired at the subject target(s) while faulting. No penalty is assessed if a competitor does not fire any
shots while faulting a line.
10.2.2 A competitor who fails to comply with a procedure specified in the written stage briefing will incur 1
procedural penalty for each occurrence. However, if a competitor has gained a significant advantage during
non-compliance, the competitor may be assessed 1 procedural penalty for each shot fired, instead of a single
penalty (e.g. firing multiple shots contrary to the required position or stance).
10.2.3 Where multiple penalties are assessed in the above cases, they must not exceed the maximum number of
scoring hits that can be attained by the competitor. For example, a competitor who gains an advantage while
faulting a Fault Line where only 4 rigid targets are visible will receive 1 procedural penalty for each shot
fired while faulting, up to a maximum of 4 procedural penalties, regardless of the number of shots actually
fired.
10.2.4. A competitor who fails to comply with a mandatory reload will incur 1 procedural penalty for each shot fired
after the point where the reload was required until a reload is performed.
10.2.5 In a Cooper Tunnel, a competitor who disturbs one or more pieces of the overhead material will receive 1
procedural penalty for each piece of overhead material which falls. Overhead material which falls as a result
of the competitor bumping or striking the uprights, or as a result of muzzle gases or recoil, will not be
penalized.
10.2.6 A competitor who is creeping (e.g. moving hands towards the firearm, a reloading device or projectiles) or
physically moving to a more advantageous shooting position, posture or stance after the "Standby" command
and prior to issuance of the start signal, will incur 1 procedural penalty. If the Range Officer can stop the
competitor in time, a warning will be issued for the first offense and the competitor will be restarted.
10.2.7 A competitor who fails to engage any scoring target with at least one projectile will incur 1 procedural
penalty per target, plus the applicable number of misses, except where the provisions of Rules 9.2.4.5 or 9.9.2
apply.
10.2.8 If a course of fire stipulates shooting strong or weak hand only, a competitor will not be penalized for using
the other hand (i.e. the other arm from the shoulder to the hand) to disengage an external safety, to reload or
to safely correct a malfunction. However, the competitor will be issued 1 procedural penalty per shot fired
while:
10.2.8.1 Touching the handgun with the other hand except as permitted above;
10.2.8.2 Using the other hand to support the handgun, wrist or shooting arm while firing shots;
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 29
10.2.8.3 Using the other hand on a barricade or another prop to increase stability while firing shots.
10.2.9 A competitor who leaves a shooting location may return and shoot again from the same location provided
they do so safely. However, written stage briefings for Classifiers, Standard Exercises and Level I & II
matches may prohibit such actions, in which case 1 procedural penalty per shot fired will apply.
10.2.10 Not Applicable.
10.2.11 Special penalty: A competitor unable to fully execute any part of a course of fire due to incapacity or injury
may, prior to making his attempt at the course of fire, request that the Range Master apply a penalty in lieu of
the stated course requirement.
10.2.11.1 If the request is approved by the Range Master, a minimum of one procedural penalty, up to a
maximum penalty of 20% of the competitor's points “as shot” (rounded up to the nearest whole
number), will be deducted from the competitor's score. For example, if 100 points are available in
the course of fire and the competitor actually scores 90 points, the special penalty is a deduction of
18 points. However, the Range Master may waive any or all procedural penalties in respect of a
competitor who has a significant physical disability prior to the competitor making his attempt at
the course of fire.
10.3 Match Disqualification – General Regulations
10.3.1 A competitor who commits a safety infraction or any other prohibited activity during an IPSC Action Air
match will be disqualified from that match, and will be prohibited from attempting any remaining courses of
fire in that match regardless of the schedule or physical layout of the match.
10.3.2 When a match disqualification is issued, the Range Officer must record the reasons for the disqualification,
and the time and date of the incident, on the competitor's score sheet, and the Range Master must be notified
as soon as possible.
10.3.3 Scores for a competitor who has received a match disqualification must not be deleted from match results,
and match results must not be declared final by the Match Director, until the time limit prescribed in Rule
11.3.1 has passed, provided no appeal to arbitration on any matter has been submitted to the Range Master
(or his delegate).
10.3.4 If an appeal to arbitration is submitted within the time limit prescribed in Rule 11.3.1, the provisions of Rule
11.3.2 will prevail.
10.3.5 Scores for a competitor who has completed a "pre-match" or main match without a match disqualification
will not be affected by a match disqualification received while that competitor is participating in a Shoot-Off
or other side match.
10.4 Match Disqualification – Accidental Discharge
A competitor who causes an accidental discharge must be stopped by a Range Officer as soon as possible. An
accidental discharge is defined as follows:
10.4.1 A shot, which travels over a backstop, a berm or in any other direction, specified in the written stage briefing
by the match organizers as being unsafe. Note that a competitor who legitimately fires a shot at a target,
which then travels in an unsafe direction, will not be disqualified, but the provisions of Section 2.3 may
apply.
10.4.2 A shot which directly strikes the ground within 3 meters of the competitor, except when shooting at a paper
target closer than 3 meters to the competitor. A projectile which strikes the ground within 3 meters of the
competitor due to insufficient propellant is exempt from this rule.
10.4.3 A shot which occurs while preparing to or while actually loading, reloading or unloading a firearm. This
includes any shot fired during the procedures outlined in Rule 8.3.7.
10.4.4 A shot which occurs during remedial action in the case of a malfunction.
10.4.5 A shot which occurs while transferring a handgun between hands.
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 30
10.4.6 A shot which occurs during movement, except while actually shooting at targets.
10.4.7 A shot fired at a rigid target from an unsafe distance (see Rule 2.1.3).
10.4.8 Not Applicable.
10.4.9 Exception: When it can be established that the cause of the discharge is due to a broken or defective part of
the firearm, the competitor has not committed any safety infraction in this Section, and a match
disqualification will not be invoked, however, the competitor's scores for that course of fire will be zero.
10.4.9.1. The firearm must be immediately presented for inspection to the Range Master or his delegate, who
will inspect the firearm and carry out any tests necessary to establish that a broken or defective
part caused the discharge. A competitor may not later appeal a match disqualification for an
accidental discharge due to a broken or defective part if they fail to present the firearm for
inspection prior to leaving the course of fire.
10.5 Match Disqualification – Unsafe Gun Handling
Examples of unsafe gun handling include, but are not limited to:
10.5.1 Handling a firearm at any time except when in a designated safety area or when under the supervision of, and
in response to a direct command issued by, a Range Officer. The expression "handling a firearm" includes
holstering or unholstering a firearm, whether or not the firearm is visible (e.g. while concealed by a
protective cover, etc.) together with adding or removing a firearm to/from the competitor's person whether or
not the firearm is wholly or partially holstered.
10.5.2 Allowing the muzzle of a firearm to point uprange, or past the default, or specific safe angles of fire during a
course of fire (limited exceptions: see Rules 5.2.7.3 and 10.5.6).
10.5.3 If at any time during the course of fire, a competitor drops his firearm or causes it to fall, loaded or not. Note
that a competitor who, for any reason during a course of fire, safely and intentionally places the firearm on
the ground or other stable object will not be disqualified provided:
10.5.3.1 The competitor maintains constant physical contact with the firearm, until it is placed firmly and
securely on the ground or another stable object, and
10.5.3.2 The competitor remains within 1 meter of the firearm at all times (except where the firearm is
placed at a greater distance, under the supervision of a Range Official, in order to comply with a
start position), and
10.5.3.3 The provisions of Rule 10.5.2 do not occur, and
10.5.3.4 The handgun is in the ready condition as specified in Section 8.1, or
10.5.3.5 A self-loading pistol has the magazine removed and the slide locked open.
10.5.4 Drawing or holstering a handgun within the confines of a tunnel.
10.5.5 Allowing the muzzle of a handgun to point at any part of the competitor's body during a course of fire (i.e.
sweeping). A match disqualification is not applicable if sweeping occurs while drawing or re-holstering a
gun, provided the competitor's fingers are clearly outside the trigger guard.
10.5.6 Allowing the muzzle of a loaded handgun to point uprange beyond a radius of 1 meter from a competitor's
feet during drawing or re-holstering.
10.5.7 Wearing or using more than one handgun at any point in time during a course of fire.
10.5.8 Failure to keep the finger outside the trigger guard while clearing a malfunction where the competitor clearly
moves the firearm away from aiming at targets.
10.5.9 Failure to keep the finger outside the trigger guard during loading, reloading, or unloading except where
specifically permitted (see Rule 8.1.2.4 and 8.3.7.1).
10.5.10 Failure to keep the finger outside the trigger guard during movement in accordance with Section 8.5.
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 31
10.5.11 Having a loaded and holstered handgun, in any of the following conditions:
10.5.11.1 A single action self-loading pistol with the chamber loaded and the safety not applied.
10.5.11.2 A double action or selective action pistol with the hammer cocked and the safety not applied.
10.5.12 Handling projectiles whether loose or packaged (e.g. in a bag, box, carton), loaded magazines and/or speed
loaders etc., and/or releasing propellant gas while in a Safety Area, or failing to comply with Rule 2.4.1.
10.5.12.1 The word "handling" does not preclude competitors from entering a Safety Area with projectiles in
their pockets, on their belt, or in their range bag, provided the competitor does not physically
remove the loose or packaged projectiles from their belt, pockets or range bag while within the
Safety Area.
10.5.13 Having a loaded firearm other than when specifically ordered to by the Range Officer. A loaded firearm is
defined as a firearm having a projectile in the chamber, or having a projectile in a magazine inserted in the
firearm.
10.5.14 Retrieving a dropped firearm. Dropped firearms must always be retrieved by a Range Officer who will, after
checking and/or clearing the firearm, place it directly into the competitor's gun case, gun bag or holster.
Dropping an unloaded firearm or causing it to fall outside of a course of fire is not an infraction, however, a
competitor who retrieves a dropped firearm will receive a match disqualification.
10.5.15 Using prohibited and/or unsafe projectiles (see Rule 5.5.4, 5.5.6).
10.6 Match Disqualification – Unsportsmanlike Conduct
10.6.1 Competitors will be disqualified from a match for conduct which a Range Officer deems to be
unsportsmanlike. Examples of unsportsmanlike conduct include, but are not limited to, cheating, dishonesty,
failing to comply with the reasonable directions of a Match Official, or any behavior likely to bring the sport
into disrepute. The Range Master must be notified as soon as possible.
10.6.2 A competitor who is deemed by a Range Officer to have intentionally removed or caused the loss of eye
protection in order to gain a competitive advantage will be disqualified.
10.6.3 Other persons may be expelled from the range for conduct which a Range Officer deems to be unacceptable.
Examples of unacceptable conduct include, but are not limited to, failing to comply with the reasonable
directions of a Match Official, interference with the operation of a course of fire and/or a competitor's
attempt thereof, and any other behavior likely to bring the sport into disrepute.
10.7 Match Disqualification – Prohibited Substances
10.7.1 All persons are required to be in complete control both mentally and physically during IPSC Action Air
matches.
10.7.2 IPSC considers the abuse of alcoholic products, non-prescription and non-essential drugs and the use of
illegal or performance enhancing drugs, irrespective of how they are taken or administered, to be an
extremely serious offense.
10.7.3 Except when used for medicinal purposes, competitors and officials at matches must not be affected by drugs
(including alcohol) of any sort during matches. Any person, who in the opinion of the Range Master is
visibly under the influence of any of the items described herein, will be disqualified from the match and may
be required to leave the range.
10.7.4 IPSC reserves the right to prohibit any general or specific substances and to introduce tests for the presence
of these substances at any time (see separate IPSC Anti-Doping Rules).

CHAPTER 11: Arbitration and Interpretation of Rules
11.1 General Principles
11.1.1 Administration – Occasional disputes are inevitable in any competitive activity governed by rules. It is
recognized that at the more significant match levels the outcome is much more important to the individual
competitor. However, effective match administration and planning will prevent most if not all disputes.
11.1.2 Access – Appeals may be submitted to arbitration in accordance with the following rules for any matter
except where specifically denied by another rule. Appeals arising from a disqualification for a safety
infraction will only be accepted to determine whether exceptional circumstances warrant reconsideration of
the match disqualification. However, the commission of the infraction as described by the Range Official is
not subject to challenge or appeal.
11.1.3 Appeals – the Range Officer makes decisions initially. If the appellant disagrees with a decision, the Chief
Range Officer for the stage or area in question should be asked to rule. If a disagreement still exists, the
Range Master must be asked to rule.
11.1.4 Appeal to Committee – Should the appellant continue to disagree with the decision he may appeal to the
Arbitration Committee by submitting a first party appeal.
11.1.5 Retain Evidence – An appellant is required to inform the Range Master of his wish to present his appeal to
the Arbitration Committee and may request that the officials retain any and all relevant documentary or other
evidence pending the hearing. Audio and/or video recordings will not be accepted as evidence.
11.1.6 Preparing the Appeal – The appellant is responsible for the preparation and delivery of the written
submission, together with the appropriate fee. Both must be submitted to the Range Master within the
specified period of time.
11.1.7 Match Official’s Duty – Any Match Official in receipt of a request for arbitration must, without delay, inform
the Range Master and must note the identities of all witnesses and officials involved and pass this
information on to the Range Master.
11.1.8 Match Director’s Duty – Upon receiving the appeal from the Range Master, the Match Director must
convene the Arbitration Committee in a place of privacy as soon as possible.
11.1.9 Arbitration Committee’s Duty – The Arbitration Committee is bound to observe and apply the current IPSC
Rules and to deliver a decision consistent with those rules. Where rules require interpretation or where an
incident is not specifically covered by the rules, the Arbitration Committee will use their best judgment in the
spirit of the rules.
11.2 Composition of Committee
11.2.1 Arbitration Committee – At Level III or higher matches the composition of the Arbitration Committee will be
subject to the following rules:
11.2.1.1 The IPSC President, or his delegate, or a certified Range Official appointed by the Match Director,
(in that order) will serve as Chairman of the committee with no vote.
11.2.1.2 Three arbitrators will be appointed by the IPSC President, or his delegate, or by the Match
Director, (in that order), with one vote each.
11.2.1.3 When possible arbitrators should be competitors in the match and should be certified Range
Officials.
11.2.1.4 Under no circumstances must the Chairman or any member of an Arbitration Committee be a party
to the original decision or subsequent appeals, which led to the arbitration.
11.2.2 Arbitration Committee – For Level I and II matches the Match Director can appoint an Arbitration
Committee of three experienced shooters who are not parties to the appeal and who do not have a direct
conflict of interest in the outcome of the case. The arbitrators should be certified Range Officials if possible.
All committee members will vote. The senior Range Official, or the senior shooter if there are no Range
Officials, will be the chairman.
IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 33
11.3 Time Limits and Sequences
11.3.1 Time Limit for Appeal to Arbitration – Written appeals to arbitration must be submitted to the Range Master
on the appropriate form, accompanied by the applicable fee, within one hour of the time of the disputed call
as recorded by Match Officials. Failure to comply will render the appeal invalid, and no further action will be
taken.
11.3.2 Decision Time Limit – The Committee must reach a decision within 24 hours of the request for arbitration or
before the results have been declared final by the Match Director, which ever comes first. If the Committee
fails to render a decision within the prescribed period, both a first and third party appellant (see Section 11.7)
will automatically succeed in their appeal, and the fee will be returned.
11.4 Fees
11.4.1 Amount – For Level III or higher matches, the appeal fee to enable an appellant to appeal to arbitration will
be US$100.00 or the equivalent of the maximum individual match entry fee (whichever is lower), in local
currency. The appeal fee for other matches may be set by the Match Organizers, but must not exceed US$100
or equivalent in local currency. An appeal brought by the Range Master in respect of a match issue will not
incur a fee.
11.4.2 Disbursement – If the Committee's decision is to uphold the appeal, the fee paid will be returned. If the
Committee's decision is to deny the appeal, the appeal fee and the decision must be forwarded to the
Regional or National Range Officers Institute (RROI or NROI) in respect of Level I and II matches, and to
the International Range Officers Association (IROA) in respect of Level III and higher matches.

IPSC Action Air Rules, January 2010 Edition 34
11.6.3 Decision is Final – The decision of the Committee is final and may not be appealed unless, in the opinion of
the Range Master, new evidence received after the decision warrants reconsideration.
11.6.4 Minutes – Decisions of the Arbitration Committee will be recorded and will provide precedent for any

APPENDIX C1
Calibration of IPSC Action Air Poppers
1. The Range Master must designate a specific supply of projectiles and one or more handguns to be used as
official calibration tools by officials authorized by him to serve as calibration officers.
2. The nominated handguns in the previous rule should be the least powerful available at the match.
3. The designated projectiles and handguns approved by the Range Master, are not subject to challenge by
competitors.
4. The Range Master must arrange for each popper to be calibrated prior to commencement of a match, and
whenever required during a match. For the initial and any subsequent calibrations, the use of a target spotter to
confirm that the calibration zone has been hit is recommended.
5. For initial calibration, each popper must be set to fall when hit within the calibration zone with a single shot fired
from a designated handgun using the calibration projectiles. The shot must be fired from the shooting location in
the course of fire furthest from the popper being calibrated. Calibration zones are indicated in the diagrams in
the following pages.
6. If, during a course of fire, a popper does not fall when hit, a competitor has three alternatives:
(a) The popper is shot again until it falls. In this case, no further action is required and the course of fire is
scored “as shot”.
(b) The popper is left standing but the competitor does not challenge the calibration. In this case, no further
action is required and the course of fire is scored “as shot”, with the subject popper scored as a miss.
(c) The popper is left standing and the competitor challenges the calibration. In this case, the popper and the
surrounding area on which it stands must not be touched or interfered with by any person. If a Match
Official violates this rule, the competitor must reshoot the course of fire. If the competitor or any other
person violates this rule, the popper will be scored as a miss and the rest of the course of fire will be
scored “as shot”.
(d) If the popper falls for any external reason (e.g. wind action), before it can be calibrated, a reshoot must be
ordered.
7. In the absence of any interference, a calibration officer must conduct a calibration test of the subject popper
(when required under 6(c) above), from as near as possible to the point from where the competitor shot the
popper, when the following will apply:
(a) If the first shot fired by the calibration officer hits the calibration zone and the popper falls, the popper is
deemed to be properly calibrated, and it will be scored as a miss.
(b) If first the shot fired by the calibration officer hits the calibration zone and the popper does not fall, the
popper is deemed to have failed, and the competitor must be ordered to reshoot the course of fire, once
the popper has been recalibrated.
(c) If the first shot fired by the calibration officer hits above or below the calibration zone, the calibration test
is deemed to have failed and the competitor must be ordered to reshoot the course of fire.
(d) If the first shot fired by the calibration officer misses the popper altogether, another shot must be fired
until one of 7(a), 7(b) or 7(c) occurs.
8. Stop plates must be calibrated for sensitivity prior to the commencement of a match and tested at regular
intervals during the match.

IPSC Action Air Stop Plate
The Stop Plate, if used, must be a circular target, not less than 15 centimeters diameter, securely
anchored to the ground, not less than 5 meters from the most likely final shooting location in the
COF. The Stop Plate must contain visual electronic indicators to confirm it has been hit, and it
must be connected by wires or other means to a timer where the time of the final shot is recorded.

13. Only Action Air handguns approved and listed on the IPSC website may be used in this Division. Approved
handguns must not be modified in any way from the manufacturer’s standard configuration.
14. Handguns deemed by IPSC to be single-action-only are prohibited. Handguns with external hammers must be
fully decocked. First shot attempted must be double action. Competitors in this Division who, after the issuance
of the start signal and prior to attempting the first shot, cock the hammer on a handgun which has a loaded
chamber, will incur one procedural penalty per occurrence. Note that a procedural penalty will not be assessed
in respect of courses of fire where the ready condition requires the competitor to prepare the handgun with an
empty chamber. In these cases, the competitor may fire the first shot single action.
