When a card is completed, one can go down range to adjust flags or pick up something they have dropped whatever. It makes no sense to penalize competitors for simple things like flags falling over, etc.

    [QUOTEJUST COMION CURTICY=doclu60;840481]Hey Dean, I don't feel telling a fellow shooter they missed a bull is all that outrageous. I have had it done for me and have done it for others.

    In the case of coaching during a match between the shooter and someone not shooting the relay, I thought it was forbidden by rule, could be wrong. I had it happen right next to me at an ARA match this summer and it was very disrupting. I finally said something and the activity ceased. As far as what the coaching entailed that I experienced was the shooters buddy set up with a spotting scope watching directly in back of him telling him why he missed by watching his flags and target. Both with hearing protection on, talking loudly and the shooter constantly spinning around on his stool to converse with his 'coach' while we were on the clock! They were new guys and didn't understand why it was an issue.

    Simply telling a shooter he didn't shoot a bull is very different in my eyes. Disrupting the line and trying to give an obvious competitive edge to a shooter such as what I witnessed this summer is, if not written in the rules as illegal, should be.

    After reviewing the rules for both IR50/50 and ARA, I have only found one rule mentioned as to coaching during a match. It was in the ARA Junior rules stating a Junior could not be coached during the match. There are rules in both sanctioning bodies as to disturbing the line during the course of fire though.

In one case, a close friend planned to build a rifle to compete in one of the disciplines i was running matches for. He saw some ugly things going on by some of these big hat sized people and sold all the components he had amassed. He wanted nothing to do with people like this. I shoot because i enjoy it and ignore those around me. There have been times i would have welcomed someone to watch me and critique what i was or wasn't doing. At this point in my life, i just hope to wake up every day
