I do not think there should be limit in how many no-shoots there can be amoung threat targets. Seen some really good stages with a few non-threats and a couple of BG's. If they are only going to have a 1:3 ratio of NT to T, then make hits on a non-threat 10 or 15 sec not 5.Only one non-threat target may be used per every three threat targets in any string of fire.
The website does have the rulebook on it, which is why it would be possible to have people read it first. Naturally, there would be many people who certify without reading, but it would make the point that everyone should read the instructions first. And I bet many people would read it, which would be an improvement over the current situation where most people obviously never read the rulebook, but instead read the flawed Cliff Notes versions which appear on the Internet.Originally posted by Tim Burke:
I thought the IDPA website had the whole rule book on it. Last time I counted, there were fewer than 30 competition rules, altough there is a lot stuff on equipment, divisions, and rationale.
In any case, you'd end up with a bunch of certifications that would be meaningless, unless you had a test before you issued the membership, and a retest after every change in the rules.

I was shooting the classifier today, the rule change didn't affect my performance.
