Newbie here....I'm trying to go through the entire shooting of a IPSC run in my mind. Semi-Auto pistol.

What I will do is try to type everything that is going to occur and I want my errors corrected.

1. Step in start Box

2. RO tells me to make ready...Now I'm not totally sure actually on this...Place 11 rd mag in gun and rack it. Stand at low-ready (if newbie) wait on RO commands

3. RO asks me if I understand course of fire

4. I nod yes....(I'm really lying)

5. RO says stand by

6. Buzzer go off

7. I shoot the run...reloading as necessary

8. Several minutes later (LOL) ...RO says time

9. I drop magazine from gun.. (put in pocket? or let it hit the ground?), rack slide and show clear...Show RO no rd in chamber. Pull trigger and re-holster.

10. Pick up mags that I dropped on ground on the way

Sorry for the stupid question...maybe a youtube clip would be good...Yours are too fast Cliff!

yup thats what you do.. dont forget about the 180 while you are reloading, I almost got DQ'ed last time but have since worked that out. I usually drop the mag on the ground just like normal.. O something to think about at step 7. dont let your gun run dry befor reloading.

You actually did very well for a newbie, but I touched it up, just a little, hope this helps....

1. Step in start Box

2. RO asks me if I understand course of fire (not required but customary)


3. RO tells me to "Make Ready"...Now I'm not totally sure actually on this...In Production division, place 11 rd mag in gun and rack it. Stand at low-ready (if newbie) wait on RO commands


4. I nod yes....(I'm really lying)

5. RO says "Are you Ready", "Stand By' within 1-4 seconds, timer button is pressed.

6. Buzzer go off

7. I shoot the Course of Fire...reloading as necessary

8. Several minutes later (LOL) ...RO says "If You Are Finished, Unload and Show Clear"

9. I drop magazine from gun.. (put in pocket? or let it hit the ground?), rack slide and show clear...Show RO no rd in chamber. RO then say, "If Clear, Hammer Down" Pull trigger, "Holster" and re-holster.

10. Pick up mags that I dropped on ground on the way

one thing you may want to remember is when you pull trigger at end after showing clear, always point down range at least 10 feet away from your feet. if there happens to be a AD if its within 10feet you will be DQ'ed from match.
Oh Yeah, don't "hot dog" and try to catch round upon clearing gun.

The "hot dogging" GunOneDown is talking about is when a shooter who is unloading and showing clear, yanks the slide back a catches the round in an attempt to look cool. Most RO's hate that becauseif a newly fitted ejector that a little long comes in contact with a slightly high primer....*BooM*......You can have an out of battery discharge. The brass splinters and sends pieces of it and lead flying. It is a bad practice that is generally frowned upon and puts the shooter and RO both in harms way.
