win armed situations!

3 classes of competitors: Virgin, Iron Man, & Hot Rod

iron sights and standard concealed carry rigs only. (They may
complete all stages with pistol only with table rest of pistol, hands
raised to shoulders while standing upright, and table draw at each
position a different firearm is to be normally exchanged.)
Rods, Barrels, & Strings Outfitters of Marble Falls
(http://www.rodsbarrelsandstringstx.com/) is providing a $25.00 gift
certificate to the winner of the Virgin class each month.
Iron Man is competition experienced shooters using iron sights on all
firearms and standard concealed carry rigs for pistols. (They may
complete all stages with pistol only but must include a table rest of
pistol, hands raised to shoulders while standing upright, and table
draw at each position a different firearm is to be normally exchanged.)
Hot Rod is any shooter using non-standard conceal carry rigs for
pistols and/or optics on any one of their firearms.
Each class will have four divisions: Revolver, Single Stack, Double
Stack, and Western. Western division will be limited to iron sights only
on their revolver pistols, Lever action rifles, and double or single
barrel shotguns. Semi-auto carbines along with semi-auto or pump
shotguns may "not" compete in the western division. Cowboy holster
rigs only in the Western division.
Custom firearms may be used in any of the classes with Optics and
military/speed holsters being the only factors of moving one to the Hot
Rod Class. Reloaded ammo is permitted and recommended to reduce
your expenses. Reloaded ammo should not be loaded lighter than the
minimum recommendations in the match reloading manual.
The match director reserves the right to chronograph competitors
ammo at the end of the match if three or more fellow competitors file a
complaint. If the competitors ammo is slower than minimum, their
score will be removed from the match results.
Drawing from concealment is "not" permitted. This Outlaw match has
very few rules; the ones we do have are based on safety. Such as all
movement and mag changes are to completed with finger off the
trigger and the classic 180 degree rule
