First time doing this event. Is anything that hits within the white area a bonus and anything outside the white area a deduction?

Robert Sloan anything outside the white area in the black is a 10 second penalty. Anything outside the black or missing off paper is a 30 second penalty. A hit inside the x zone of the head is a 30 second deduction from your time. 2 years ago

Good Morning, Can someone share how pistols are staged during the running portions? The rules mention "WPFG shooting events require the use of practical handguns and holsters..." Does this event utilize drawing from a holster? From the rules, I was assuming that guns are staged unloaded at a shooting location, to be loaded and fired when a runner arrives, but not necessarily drawn from a holster? Thanks!!

Robert Sloan Your pistol will be staged on a table at your shooting lane. 2 years ago

Robert,
How is a mixed age group team scored? Is it both scores added together but have to be in the lower of the two age groups for the team score?

Lysanne Lapointe yes exactly. You can be with someone younger than you or with a women. Both scores are added together and you are in the lower age groupe. 2 years ago

With the various types of triggers on the striker fired guns with trigger safety levers, we have had problems with the trigger weighing differently depending on where the weight is placed on the trigger. Leverage can affect the pull weight by 1/2 lb or more (placing near the bottom end can read up to a full pound lighter). Usually the person tasked with the weigh-in has been good about siding with the shooter and re-positioning the weight 2 or 3 times to get the gun to pass. Just asking if the... Show more

I have a rules question. As stated, the event is a "no alibi" match. There is also a time penalty for not firing 12 rounds in each shooting phase. If a competitor attempts to fire 12 rounds, but suffers a misfire, can he load an additional round during that shooting phase in order to fire the 12 rounds required?

Robert Sloan I checked the rules. There are no alibi rounds as you have stated. The rules also state a competitor may only have 24 rounds of ammunition at their shooting position. Each magazine or speed loader may only contain 6 rounds. Taking that in to... Show more 2 years ago

I have been getting a lot of questions about trigger pull weight so I am going to try and give everyone a simple answer. Your trigger must be able to lift a 3.5lbs trigger weight off a table while being cocked. If the hammer falls/striker falls you will not be able to use the pistol. Most factory pistols come with a trigger weight exceeding this requirement. If you are unsure then have a gunsmith or other qualified person check it before you come. I would hate to see someone travel here then... Show more

A decision was made concerning the rental or loaning of the firearms and ammunition for the 2015 WPFG. We will not have any firearms for rent or loan here at our games. We also will not have ammunition for sale at the venue site for PPC, PAP and Biathlon. I'm sorry if this causes any problems. If you are a international competitor please fill out an ATF form 6NIA(5330.3D) to temporarily import your firearm for use during the WPFG. This form must be returned to the ATF no later then February 9 2015... Show more

Robert Sloan Our agency decided not to rent or loan pistols and other associated equipment during the 2015 WPFG's. I fully understand the difficulties with exporting weapons from other countries', but this decision has been reviewed and stands firm. 2 years ago
