Hits in corners of 2nd and 3rd class targets outside the outer circle
are now of no scoring value and will not be signalled.
PART II.
Signalling and Scoring.
(b) If a shot hits the ground in front of a target and then
rebounds and hits the target it is a ricochet, and is marked in
the ordinary matches by waving a black bar across the target,
it has no value, but is marked on the score card by the letter
R.    No spotting disc will be shown for a Ricochet.
(c) Misses will not be signalled; but if a target is lowered under the impression that it has been hit, and no hit is
found on the target, after raising it the marker will wave a red
flag across its face, to signify that the target has not been
struck.
2. Any target hit, is lowered into the butts for examination, and the position of the hit is shown when the target is
again raised, by a spotting disc fastened through the bullet hole.
;io 3. When two shots strike a target, that which has the
highest value alone will be signalled, and the competitor whose
proper turn it was to fire at the target will be credited with
that shot, provided that he has fired. Both shots will, however,
be shown with spotting discs. The competitor whose proper
turn it was to fire at the target will, on application to the
Range Officer, be allowed to fire a sighting shot before his next
shot in the competition.
4. The marking may be challenged before any other shot
has been fired at the same target, on the sum of twenty-five
(25) cents being first deposited with the Range Officer. If, on
examination, the marking in question is confirmed, the twenty-
five (25) cents shall be forfeited without appeal. If on the contrary, the objection proves well founded, the correct value will
be signalled in the usual way, and the twenty-five (25) cents
shall be returned to the competitor who paid it, and the score*
altered in accordance with the decision received.
5. In squadded team competitions no.charge will be made
for challenges.
6. If on a target being raised the spotting disc should appear unmistakably to disagree with the signal disc, the Register
Keeper shall stop the firing at the target and report the circumstances to the Range Officer, who shall decide the shot,
after enquiry of the officer in charge of the butt, but no deposit
will be required, nor shall there be any appeal from the decision given.
7. All claims for shots signalled must be made before another shot is fired at the target in question, otherwise they shall
not be allowed.
8. If at the moment at which a competitor fires, his target
should be lowered in such a manner as to falsify the result of
his shot, the Range Officer is empowered to cancel the result
of such shot, and to permit the competitor to fire another shot
in its place.
9. All alterations of the Register must be initialled by the
Officer making them, but no alteration except in the case of a
clerical error, shall be made, without his first having communicated with the butt.
10. No person will be permitted to go and examine a target during the meeting, except the Range Officer, or such person
or persons as he may duly authorize to do so on his behalf.
36
U VIII.—RIFLES.
The arm to be used in all matches shall be the British

XL—ORDER  OF SHOOTING.
1. Competitors must be present at the firing points before
the time stated, and hand their tickets to the Range Officer,
oherwise they will not be allowed to shoot; the time to be
regulated by the clock in the Secretary's office.
2. When at the firing points, competitors must comply
with all orders given by the Range Officer in charge.
37 3. All preliminaries must be completed before taking a
position for firing, and will not be allowed as an excuse for
delay.
4. In all ordinary competitions competitors shall, as
squadded, be formed up by threes, and fire shot and shot
alternately commencing at the right. Competitors must fire at
the target to which they are squadded, unless before they commence to shoot the Range Officer details them to another target.
5. Competitors detailed for the same hour shall fire in
such order as the Range Officer may direct.
6. When but one competitor is present, and there is no
other squad with a vacancy to which he can be readily transferred, he shall fire his shots without undue delay, but the
officer in charge of the firing point or some one named by him,
must witness the shooting and countersign the register. Failing such verification the score will be invalidated. Any person present whom the competitor may name will watch the
score recorded, and, if need be, raise objection before the next
shot is fired.
7. No two competitors may shoot in any competition with
the same rifle, nor shall a competitor change his rifle at any
range during a competition, unless his first rifle should become
unserviceable through an accident, which must be verified by
the officer in charge.
8. The competitor must, after delivering each shot, pay
attention to the score called out by the Register Keeper and
himself see that such score is correctly entered on the black
board, so that any objection to the score as recorded may be
investigated before the next shot is fired.
9. In the case of unreasonable delay in firing on the part
of any competitor, or such delay as the Range Officer may
consider likely to prolong the firing beyond the time allowed,
the Range Officer shall have the right to caution and time the
competitor by a watch or sand glass, and if after such caution
the competitor does not fire before the expiration of 45 seconds,
the Range Officer shall declare the shot forfeited, and call on
the next competitor to proceed with the firing.
