Granted, the SO needs to be held partially accountable for not insuring that the gun is unloaded, but it is still an accidental discharge.

Sorry to make this a big discussion...but it is definitely one that needs to be addressed for those of us who act as Safety Officers in USPSA or IDPA.


I know we're inducing a bit of thread drift here...

Here's my take, based purely on the IDPA rule book. Though a MD "MAY" DQ a shooter, for an AD like you describe (controlled and safe direction) during an "unlaod and show clear" sequence, it's not because IDPA rules require it. It could, of course, be done due to local club range rules.

IDPA rules state the round would need to be discharged in an un-safe direction and/or with in 2 yards of the firing line.

Perhaps USPSA/IPSC is different. In IDPA, the CoF isn't officially "over" for that shooter until the "Range is Safe" command is issued by the SO.

Some minds are like concrete..thoroughly mixed up and permanently set!
