The goal of this class are to encourage shooters to use field practical, tactical equipment that is reliable in adverse conditions and add an element of physical endurance to the competition not found in other classes.
- The shooter must transport all firearms, ammunition, equipment, and cleaning supplies with them for the duration of the match from the moment they sign in.
- The amount of ammunition the shooter begins the match with, is all they are allowed to use for the duration of the match. The shooter may have as much ammunition in their pack, vest, or ammunition carriers as he/she wishes.
- Any back up guns the shooter may wish to use should their primary firearm become inoperable during the course of the match must be carried with them for the duration of the match.
- The equipment must be carried via any man portable means and in a safe manner. No wagons, wheelbarrows, carts, sleds, etc. allowed.
- The shooter does not need to carry all this equipment during the course of fire, they may ground their rucksack and use only the equipment on their person if they wish.
- Trooper class shooters must start with at least one liter of water on their person or in their rucksack. Additional water will be provided. The shooter must carry any beverages other than water themselves.
- Any time a Trooper class shooter leaves the range, he/she must check his/her gear at the stat house where it will be secured to prevent tampering and/or adding or removing of equipment.
- The only assistance allowed to a trooper class shooter during a course of fire, is verbal direction from the Range Officer only.
Failure to follow these rules or voluntarily choosing to drop out of Trooper Class will place the shooter in a class as determined by the firearms and accessories they are using.
Another individual can give medical assistance without bumping the shooter out of Trooper Class.
All trooper class shooters will be squaded together to ensure that participating shooters properly follow the rules.
- Trooper Class shooters may use firearms from any of the other specified classes, in any combination, however they must be able to transport any firearms (and spares) from stage to stage by themselves without assistance.
- There is no limit on magazine capacity, bipods, scopes, etc in Trooper Class.
- If a shooter decides to carry more than one firearm, spare upper receiver, optics, etc. they may elect to use them on a stage as they see fit. Rifle calibers may only be used on rifle targets, shotguns on shot targets, and pistols on pistol targets. Multiple firearms of the same category may only be used at the discretion of the range officer or as prescribed by the course of fire. For example; a shooter may not begin the stage with a bolt-action rifle and swap out to a semi auto carbine for the rifle targets unless authorized to do so by the range officer or switching guns prescribed by the course of fire. If a range officer assesses that it is reasonable and safe to allow a trooper class shooter to use multiple guns on a stage, they must do so for all Trooper class shooters.
