Hi,
To bring this back on track a bit
I stand to be corrected but I do not see a situation where you would benefit from having the ability to switch your ret off. Mine is set low so is only visible in deep shadows. I think this is to stop "any" adjustment of the scope, which could be used by some to cover sneekyness
Think this one makes sense. But do agree with the question of who is consulted on rule changes
Si

Just been reading the 2014 ukahft rules, it clearly states

"Once the first shot has been taken, NO adjustments may be made, in any way, to the rifle, stock or scope."

Which I feel is nice and simple, so the according t this you would not be allowed to switch the illumination back on if it timed out. Then later in the rules, this is stated

"Any traditional type scope and settings can be used. However, zeroing, magnification, dialling and parallax must be set prior to the first shot and left untouched until the course is completed, this includes illuminated reticules which if used must be switched on with the brightness set before the first shot is taken and remain that way without any adjustment or switching throughout the competition."

So if your illumination is off at the end of a shoot, you are disqualified

Don't think so...
If it turns itself off whether through the 'timed out illumination' or a flat battery it will just stay 'as is' , i was just forewarning the peeps who either have a timed out ret already or are thinking of buying one (like myself) that times out, that if you are caught turning it back on you could get a wrist slap

Makes no odds to me, never use 'em
Maybe allow a marshal to switch them back on if they time out.
