5.2 – Flagrant Penalty (FP)
A Flagrant Penalty (FP) adds ten (10) seconds and is assessed, instead of a PE Penalty, in cases where an infraction results in a competitive advantage, such as failure to follow the instructions in a CoF and gaining a competitive advantage that cannot be addressed by a PE (i.e. score works out in competitors favor with a PE added).
5.2.1 Flagrant Penalties are assessed when:
- A shooter fails to follow the shooting procedures set forth in the written stage description and/or uses inappropriate equipment with the obvious intent of gaining a competitive scoring advantage.
- A shooter breaks a rule of the game.
- A conduct violation described in the Shooter’s code of conduct as determined by the MD.
5.2.1 Examples of an FP (non-inclusive list):
- SHO/WHO strings / stages shot Freestyle
- Not going prone when required
- Not fully engaging all targets as required
- Not following stage requirement that takes longer than 3 seconds to perform
- Shooting an entire array while faulting the line
- Staging an ammunition feeding device incorrectly
- Extra rounds in magazines
All FPs must be approved by the MD.
