Alibis: Alibis will only be granted for weapon or ammo induced malfunctions. No alibis will be granted for shooter induced malfunctions, time violations or ammunition management issues.

Threat Ready is defined as the shooter having the weapon presented to the target in a two-handed grip. The weapon is lowered to allow complete visibility of threat over the top of the weapon.

A String of Fire is defined as a continuous series of shots fired between the commands to fire and cease fire.
