Soo... Doc you basically cannot find any evidence to support your claim of what "used" mean nor can you dispute that the per shot penalty is clearly wrong.
Just dismissing stuff as "dumb" or "it should say" …
I haven't offered a definition for 'use'. I said that it is too broad a term to be in the WSB. See below. And I already said why I think the per shot penalty is wrong.
if the stage says use ammo on table... can you mid stage go to your range bag and take ammo and use that instead without penalty?
Reductio ad adsurbum fallicy. Too blatantly obvious and stupid to even discuss.
No we are discussing the definition of the word "use". Its not a different topic, its the definition of a word.
Why can't you go to your range back? If they tell you, you have to "use" the ammo off the table.. then they're creating a specific definition of the word use... not a general term... and that's a no-no according to post #48.
Just because you won't let go of it, I'll give you the definition of use a range lawyer might make at the arb for this cluster fuck.
"I inserted the mag and the mag catch didn't click it in secure and the mag fell out. I didn't know if the problem was the mag itself, the catch in the gun or my failure to seat the mag fully. I grabbed one from my belt at went on. You might argue that that would be a procedural for not using the first mag on the stage, but I made the good faith attempt."
Then the good ole boys of McHenry IPSC Shooting Society could convene and decide the fate of the shooter in question.
Here's another. He used the mag until it stopped working and then went to a second mag.
Not MY definitions, possible shooter definitions all centered around a term that has lots of definitions and is not precisely defined in the rule book.
MY point is, the WSB is ambiguous because of the word 'use' and 'mag', complicated by specifying a PORTION of the shooter's supply instead of all or none.
I make no specific definition of 'use' for that reason - The point you seem to be missing.
