4.8 – Threat and Non-Threat Target Designation

4.8.1  Non-threat targets must be designated by displaying a pair of normal sized open hands of contrasting color, at least one of which must be visible from all shooting positions where the target may be engaged.

4.8.2  Threat targets may be designated by displaying a normal sized threat indicator (like a firearm or knife) that is visible from all shooting positions where the target may be engaged.

4.8.3  Targets must be easily identified as threat or non-threat.

4.8.4  Threat indicators of different kinds all have equal threat value and do not change target engagement priority. For example, a knife is equal in threat to a shotgun, rifle, or other firearms.

4.8.5  Threat and non-threat indicators may be painted or marked on the targets or covering clothing, or may be clipped or stapled to the target.
