In addition to the 4 primary rules of firearms safety, several additional rules apply to competitive shooting:
- Do not handle or unholster your firearm unless you are 1.) under supervision of a range officer OR 2.) at a designated safe area on the range.
- Do not handle ammunition or loaded magazines in the designated safe area.
- Keep your finger outside of the trigger guard while loading, unloading, clearing malfunctions, or moving.
- Always keep your muzzle within 90 degrees from the median intercept of the backstop (obeying the "180 rule").
