Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What is a Rookie?
Answer: The Rookie Division is for anyone who is a level one in other shooting organizations or has no prior affiliation with any mounted shooting organization. They are eligible for match payback. A competitor will be moved up to Non Pro after 3 wins with 4 entries in their division. There will be no move downs into Rookie Division except any returning MSA Non Pro with no MSA wins, may petition by letter, to be moved down one time, into the Rookie Division.
Question: How do I earn points:
- Each contestant receives one point for entering and one point for each contestant he or she places above in the overall standing.
- Points will be counted toward saddles for overall points winners in their divisions and those saddles will be awarded at the MSA World Competition.
- Points will be awarded for Main Match, Xtreme Qualifier, Rifle and Shotgun (which will be tracked separately). No points will be awarded Xtreme Handicap, “Fun shoot”, Teams or any other type of match other than those mentioned above.
- Points remain with a contestant as they move up or down
