Breaking News! MultiGun Rule Changes

The following 4 rules were passed as amendments to the current Provisional MG rules, and will be in effect at the 2012 MG Nationals.  These will also be the first MG Nationals using the Time Plus Scoring system.
Provisional Multi-gun Rule amendment in time for 2012 MG Nationals
To amend the provisional Multigun rules by removing the 10+1 round limit for Open Shotgun
----------------------------
Frangible target amendment
To amend Shotgun rule 4.4.1.1 Frangible targets must break with a visible piece missing or separated from the original target to be counted for score
to say:

4.4.1.1. Frangible targets must break with a visible piece missing or separated from the original target to be counted for score. A fixed frangible target that falls from a hit on its holder will be considered a hit.
Commentary: This rule was amended in an attempt to save time and lessen the possibility of excessive re-shoots.
-----------------------------
MG Popper calibration
Amend rule 9.1.4 Knock down style targets (i.e. poppers) must fall to score. Poppers will be calibrated using the proper calibration gun and ammo for the discipline being used on such targets
to say:

9.1.4 Knock down style targets (i.e. poppers) must fall to score. Poppers will be calibrated using the designated handgun and the calibration ammunition. The shot must be fired from a minimum of 10 yards as specified in Appendix C1.
----------------------------
Multi-gun stage clearance procedures
Amend MG 8.3.6
In order to reduce stage clearance time, a Range Officer may be assigned to clear “abandoned” firearms at the Range Master’s discretion. After ensuring that the range is clear and no person is downrange of the abandoned firearm, the RO shall verify that the abandoned firearm is in a legal abandoned state (eg, properly positioned, and safety-on or empty as appropriate per MG 10.5.3). Upon verifying the condition, the RO may clear the firearm and transport the cleared firearm to a rack or other location behind the line. The Range Officer is responsible for the safe handling of the firearm during this process, including (but not limited to) muzzle direction.
To say:

8.3.6 In order to reduce stage clearance time, a Range Officer may be assigned to clear “abandoned” firearms, at the Range Master’s discretion, provided the stage design allows for this to be done in a way that allows the gun to be cleared in a safe direction. The RO shall verify that the abandoned firearm is in a legal abandoned state (eg, properly positioned, and safety-on or empty as appropriate per [10.5.3]). Upon verifying the condition, the RO may clear the firearm and transport the cleared firearm to a rack or other location behind the firing line. The Range Officer is responsible for the safe handling of the firearm during this process, including (but not limited to) muzzle direction. In such cases, the competitor’s delegate must be entitled to accompany the official responsible for clearing abandoned firearms. Delegates will verify the initial safe condition of the abandoned firearm(s). Competitors must be advised of this procedure during the stage briefing in order to select a delegate.
Commentary: This amendment was added to speed up stage clearance time to ensure matches will run on schedule.
