    IPSC HANDGUN RULEBOOK, JAN 2004
    INTERPRETATIONS OF 6 AUG 2004
    INTERPRETATIONS OF 11 APR 2005
    INTERPRETATIONS OF 22 JUL 2005

    11.8 Interpretation of Rules
    The interpretations of the Rules listed below are highlighted
    with additional words shown in bold text, and deleted words in
    strikethrough. Please note that these are interpretations only –
    not rule amendments. All these and these interpretations are
    subject to ratification or modification at the next IPSC
    Assembly.

    2.1.8.4 Static paper targets (i.e. those which are not
    activated) must not be presented at an angle greater
    than 90 degrees from the vertical.

    3.1 General Regulations
    The competitor is always responsible to safely fulfil the
    requirements of a course of fire but can only reasonably be
    expected to do so after verbally or physically receiving the
    written stage briefing, which must adequately explain the
    requirements to the competitors. Course information can be
    broadly divided into the following types:

    4.1.3 Penalty targets must be clearly marked or be of a
    single color different from scoring targets. Penalty
    metal targets in the general size and shape of
    authorized paper targets may be used. Penalty
    metal targets do not have a non scoring border.

    4.1.4.1 Cover provided to hide all or a portion of a target
    will be considered hard cover. When possible hard
    cover should not be simulated but constructed using
    impenetrable materials. Whole paper targets must
    not be used solely as hard cover.

    4.1.4.2 Cover provided merely to obscure the view of
    targets is considered soft cover. Shots which have
    passed through soft cover and which strike a
    scoring target will score. Shots that have passed
    through soft cover before hitting a penalty target
    will be penalized. All scoring zones on targets
    hidden by soft cover must be left wholly intact.
    Targets obscured by soft cover must either be
    visible through the soft cover or at least a
    portion of the affected target(s) must be visible
    from around the soft cover.

    4.2.4.4 Hard cover (and overlapping penalty paper
    targets) must not completely obscure hide the
    highest scoring zone on a partially hidden paper
    target.

    4.3.1.8 Penalty metal targets designed to remain upright
    when hit must, if hit, be repainted after each
    competitor ends their attempt at the course of fire,
    failing which subsequent competitors must not be
    penalized for hits visible on their surface.

    4.6.1 Range equipment must present the challenge fairly
    and equitably to all competitors. Range equipment
    failure includes, but is not limited to, the
    displacement of paper targets, the premature
    activation of metal or moving targets, the
    malfunction of mechanically or electrically operated
    equipment, and the failure of props such as
    openings, ports, and barriers. The declaration
    and/or use of any loaded (see Rule 10.5.13) or
    unloaded firearm as "range equipment" is
    prohibited.

    5.1.3.1 "Open sights" are aiming devices fitted to a
    firearm which do not use electronic circuitry and/or
    lenses.

    5.1.3.2 "Optical/electronic sights" are aiming devices
    (including flashlights) fitted to a firearm which
    use electronic circuitry and/or lenses.

    5.1.4 Unless required by a Division (see Appendices),
    there is no restriction on the trigger pull weight of a
    handgun, however, the trigger mechanism must, at
    all times, function safely and as originally designed.

    5.2.1 Carry and Storage – Except when within the
    boundaries of a safety area, or when under the
    supervision and direct command of a Range
    Officer, competitors must carry their handguns
    unloaded in a gun case, gun bag or in a holster
    securely attached to a belt on their person (see
    Rule 10.5.1).

    5.6.2.3 The chronograph will be deemed to be within
    tolerance if provided the daily average is within +/-
    5% of the applicable minimum power factor
    varies no more than 5% from any of the previous
    day's averages.

    5.6.3.3 From the 8 sample rounds drawn by Match
    Officials, 1 bullet is weighed to determine the actual
    bullet weight, and 3 are fired over the chronograph.
    In the absence of a bullet puller and scales, the
    competitor's declared bullet weight will be used.
    Digits displayed on the official match bullet
    scales and chronograph will be used at face
    value, irrespective of the number of decimal
    places indicated on the particular model of
    measuring device used at the match.

    5.6.3.4 Power factor is calculated using the bullet weight
    and the average velocity of the 3 rounds fired,
    according to the following formula:
    Power Factor =
    bullet weight (grains) x average velocity (ft per sec)
    1000
    Note: The underline beneath “Power Factor”
    removed.
    The final result will ignore all decimal places
    (e.g. for IPSC purposes, a result of 124.9999 is
    not 125).

    5.7.1 In the event that a competitor's handgun
    malfunctions after the start signal, the competitor
    may safely attempt to correct the problem and
    continue the course of fire. During such corrective
    action, the competitor must keep the muzzle of the
    handgun pointing safely downrange at all times.
    The competitor may not use rods, or other tools to
    correct the malfunction. Violations will result in a
    zero score for the stage. A competitor who
    experiences a firearm malfunction while
    responding to the "Load And Make Ready"
    command, but prior to issuance of the “Start
    Signal”, is entitled to retire, under the authority
    and supervision of the officiating Range Officer,
    to repair his firearm, without penalty, subject to
    the provisions of Rule 5.7.4, Rule 8.3.1.1 and all
    other safety rules. Once the repairs have been
    completed (and the provisions of Rule 5.1.7 have
    been satisfied, if applicable), the competitor may
    return to attempt the course of fire, subject to
    scheduling as determined by the officiating
    Range Officer or Range Master.

    5.7.2 While rectifying a malfunction that requires the
    competitor to lower the handgun down from "on
    aim" clearly move the handgun away from
    aiming at a target, the competitor's fingers must be
    clearly visible outside the trigger guard (see Rule
    10.5.8).
