    Post Indoor " Defensive Carbine " Rules

    Rules may change or be modified from this list: April 2017
    CTASA Defensive Carbine Rules

    Ranges:
    DEFENDER OUTDOORS (Fort Worth)
    Philosophy: This match is designed to practice defensive carbine. The rules may simplified or adjusted to facilitate completion in the time required at the range.

    “Defensive Carbine Match " rules:
    Stage Design Rules – Due to the limited space and time on our indoor ranges, the stages should be designed with a maximum of 30 rounds.
    Firearms:
    o Semi-auto magazine fed carbine rifle, legally possessed SBR, or ATF Approved “Pistol” (buffer tube with brace that is not shot from shoulder, cheek weld only)
    o 5.56/223 Centerfire, .22LR Rimfire or Pistol calibers (9mm etc).
    o Any sight and optics may be used(no restrictions). Must stay the same throughout the match.
    o For indoor matches, magazine capacity will be limited to 20 rounds unless otherwise stated in stage descriptions. This will allow reloading practice at our indoor matches.
    o NO slings may be used or attached.
    o Magazine couplers are not allowed.
    o There is no restriction on the trigger pull weight, however, the trigger mechanism must, at all times, function safely.
    o All firearms must be serviceable and safe. Range Officers may demand examination of a competitor’s firearm or related equipment, at any time, to check they are functioning safely. If any such item is declared unserviceable or unsafe by a Range Officer, it must be withdrawn from the match until the item is repaired to the satisfaction of the Match Director.
    Ammunition Rules
    o No Steel Core ammunition allowed on any of our indoor ranges
    o No Steel CASE ammunition allowed on any of our indoor ranges
    o No Aluminum CASE ammunition allowed on any of our indoor ranges
    o Violation of any of these rules will result in a match DQ. A second violation will result in banning from shooting at the range.
    Targets, Shooting and Scoring
    o IDPA Targets / Time plus Points Down scoring (1 second per point down )
    o Typically best 2 hits on target scored unless otherwise specified.
    o 5 Seconds per hit on non-threat
    o 3 Seconds for procedurals (general – firing extra shots, out of cover, etc.)
    o 5 Seconds for a FTN ( if no 1 or 0 hit )
    o Best shots pulled if extra shots are fired at target on limited stage.
    o Upper and Lower scoring areas count for “Body” shots (unless SPECIFICALLY called for in the course of fire).
    o Only Upper scoring areas count for “Head” shot.
    o Fault lines may be used
    o Pass-throughs count.
    o Cover is defined as having one leg behind cover, bisecting body / or low cover one knee on the ground.
    o You may reload anywhere and drop magazines anywhere with or without rounds in the magazine.
    o Tactical Priority is required when engaging targets. Near to far if in the open, or in barricade order (outside to inside).
    o Support Side Shots are shouldered weak side with support hand on trigger
    o All stages will start with the firearm loaded to capacity, safety on, at the low ready unless otherwise specified in the course of fire (i.e. Table Start, unloaded start, etc.)
    o If you are moving and not engaging a target, your finger must be outside the trigger guard. Finger calls are a PE (3 Sec), and second one is a DQ.
    o At barricades, do not sweep your feet while changing sides, do not sweep over top of barricade as that may incur a DQ. Either stand back from barricade so you can transition across, or bring firearm back so you can transition from side to side.
    o When moving and reloading, do not break the 180, keep the firearm pointed down range at all times.
    Additional Equipment Rules
    o Knee pads are allowed
    o Mag pouches are encouraged and placement allowed anywhere on your belt.
    o Hearing protection at indoor ranges with centerfire rifles are LOUD. You may want to double-plug (soft plugs and electronic hearing) to make it more enjoyable.
    o Legally possessed Suppressors are allowed and encouraged if you so choose.
    Safety Rules
    o Unbagging and bagging of firearms must be done in the designated safety area of the range which will vary. Usually on an outside wall, muzzle pointed at wall while unbagging.
    o Your firearm should initially be bolt open, safety on, and have a chamber flag before it is put in the rifle rack
    o Unbagged firearms must be carried with the firearm vertical by the handguard not the grip/pistol grip. At the ranges we shoot at, that means “vertically upwards” (Muzzle up).
    o Once you are called to the line for your first stage, you may remove the chamber flag and are no longer required to use it.
    o Once you finish a course of fire, you must under the direction of the safety officer, unload, show clear, LOCK THE BOLT BACK (if possible), engage safety and transport the firearm back to the firearms rack. If your bolt does not lock back, we will require you to continue to use the chamber flag.
    *All other general safety rules covered in IDPA/USPA Rule books will be observed.

    Thanks! Based on this line: "Any sight and optics may be used(no restrictions). Must stay the same throughout the match." Does that mean that Lasers are OK now?

    No lasers. That is for your PCC carbine @ the IDPA matches.
