    Above states they are required.
    There is no date or information as to the events or start date required.

    I am sorry to have answered in polysyllabic words and in multi-word sentences, and only in standard English.

    Here's a clearer answer to Mr. Holland's question: No.

    Guarantee it will be more than the 3-4 teams shooting Spencer.

    "SSP" is the acronym for "Single Shot Pistol".

    John Robey,
    Will you also please explain in words that I can understand where you got your information from and let me know where I can find it in print? The reason I ask is that it's contradictory to what was sent out on paper for the Spring Nationals 2020 packet.

    Quote from the packet sent to me.

    New for 2020:
    * Loading stands are now a requirement for individuals and for demo match.

    Also interesting that the Commander?s notes from the meeting indicate that stands must be used for both.

    Loading stands are required for single shot pistol (SSP) in both individual and demo team matches. When SSP team matches are approved, they will also require a loading stand. Board of Directors passed this rule August 2019.

    Linwood,

    Could this / should this be added to the Summary of Rules Changes doc until the 2020 Rules are published? The currently available rules still say that you can either load with butt of the gun resting on the bench or use a loading stand. With the availability of e-versions and the printed mini-version, this contradiction could cause a confrontation between shooter and safety.

    I should have the 2020 version of the rules posted within the next few days. Including the summary of changes.

    The demo matches have drawn quite a number of teams, we'll see how many people are willing to shoot Thursday late afternoon but it will be at least 10 teams I believe. There's a limit to what we can handle on the Revolver Range at this time.
