5.1 – Procedural Error (PE)

Procedural Errors add 3 seconds per infraction and are assessed when:

  1. A shooter fails to follow the shooting procedures set forth in the written stage description.
  2. A shooter breaks a rule of the game.
  3. A conduct violation described in the Shooter’s code of conduct as determined by the MD.

A PE is assessed for each type of infraction. If the shooter commits more than one type of infraction, such as using the wrong specified hand and firing an incorrect number of shots, a separate PE is assessed for each type of infraction. For cover violations (or faulting the line), the number of cover PEs cannot exceed the number of positions of cover.
