Lightning rifle

Recommended Posts

Shot my very first WBAS match today.  Been shooting CAS almost 4 years.  I had a good time. I prefer the revolvers, but I'm sure I'll shoot WB again. 


Question came up.  A shooter using a Lighning rifle came to line with action open.  (Lightnings have to be loaded with action open) shooter set it down, briefly (hands did come off gun, if that matters) before it was noticed.  He picked up, returned to loading table and corrected.  After some discussion, it was deemed a no-call.  Rule book says rifles staged with action closed, hammer on safety notch or fully down.  Does not give a penalty for action open.  I suspect a SDQ for not following loading procedure. What is correct call?
