Default Important rule change

This doesn't come up very often, but this year's rule book requires that Pistol EIC matches have turning targets for the timed/rapid stages. I know of only one range here in Texas that ran EICs in the past with stationary targets, but they know the cannot run them in the future.
3.7.3 Target Line
Targets are located along a line parallel to the firing line(s) that is 50 feet, 25 yards or 50 yards from the firing line. Targets may be turning or fixed, except that National Trophy, National Championship and EIC Matches events must be fired on turning targets.

I guess it's too difficult to enforce or unsafe to maintain low ready until "Targets" is called or the targets turn?

I think it has more to do with the conflict between the NRA rule on late shots versus how the CMP scores them. The NRA rule penalizes you for a late shot; the CMP does not.
