With what C&R rifle you often get caught violating with the ranges rules

I got caught again violating the AGC Ranges rules while I am still in probation with a more serious violation 5 months ago. I left the Lee Enfield #4 Mk1* magazine on the rifle during the “ceasefire” with the chamber plug in place and the gun is on the side bench (not shooting bench. I put it there long before they called ceasefire.) I think I just got confused with guns like Mosin Nagant or Berthier which I have several copies for each kind. The funny thing is, I never forget removing my SKS magazine.

I don’t try to deny my mistake because, like the Board of Trustees, I believe safety is priority one and everyone must follow religiously. It is not that I did not remember the rules. It is the recognition of the mind at the moment. Now I just wonder that, with what C&R rifle you guys often get caught violating with the ranges rules.

I also use this opportunity to thanks the MMSS president for being there with me and to show my regret to the Board of Trustees.

I've never removed the magazine from my Enfield at AGC. I know the magazine is removable, but I think I've only removed it once.

Sounds chickshiite as long as the mag was empty and you had your empty chamber flag. It's not like the English issued ammo in mags for the Enfields. They are typically so stiff, it's a PITA to remove them.

K-31.

Been called on it at Cresap despite chamber flag as well. The problem is, they're not really meant to be detachable in the sense that modern detachable mags are. You aren't swapping out mags on an Enfield or K-31, you're hand-loading or using chargers, so it's easy to forget that they ARE detachable in the first place. By that interpretation of the rule, I'm surprised they don't make me drop the floor plate on my Mosins or 1916 SpanMau.

Never even occurred to me to drop the mag on an Enfield. Thanks for the warning!

This, this, and this.
Based on the one time I did drop it I think I would have to start working it out at 11:15 for a 11:30 cease fire

I know two shooters who refuse to shoot their Enfield at AGC. That is their stubbornness based on the fact that the mags were reloaded by the use of 5 round chargers. Yes some can be difficult to remove but the rules do not exempt Enfields from removing mag during cease fires. I shoot my Enfield on a regular basis and no objection to removing them.

Imagine the chaos that would ensue if someone didn't open the magazine door on their Krag.

I went to Cresap once. I never wanted to go back after seeing their RO's in action. Most of the one's I saw seemed like wannabe Parris Island DI's breathing down the necks of people trying to shoot. Shame since it's close to my house, but I'm so glad I joined Thurmont instead.

I make it a habit of dropping the magazine bottom floor plate of my Mosins when a ceasefire is called.
