Hey Paul,

Section 1.4.1 and 1.4.2, can the scatterguns be carried in my cowboy gun cart - when parked they sit upright, muzzle up, actions open...?

I really want to go.  But I haven’t been able to find anyone to take my shift at work yet, and even if I do, I think doing Halloween stuff with the kids will take priority.

a chamber flag would still be required, muzzle up or down is fine.  gotta change the old rules from before the time of chamber flags for all long guns that the range now requires.

I live in Prescott, so that turns it into a 5 hour minimum affair including drive time.  And I don’t have the day off work yet.  

Darn, I have a new shotgun arriving at my FFL tomorrow, too…

This is also a fun match; showing up in costume with a SxS or O/U and having a blast (pardon the pun) is part of the allure.

This Match is totally tongue in cheek with stages name like:  "are the walls closing in?"  "this isn't where I parked my car!"  "the wave is the motion"
You know you are in for a good time.
