For clarification, AFTCA trustees approved 410 bore shotguns with safety blanks during the May 31, 2008 meeting. Concerning specified safety blanks, the approved motion reads:
A. Only specified safety blanks used in re-enactment events and endorsed by AFTCA governance may be used. (1/2 loaded-grey) safety blanks emit no solid material from the barrel. Judges may ask for verification of such prior to breakaway.

Having had a few inquiries about the recent recommendation for approval of the Garmin T-5, hopefully the following will clear up any confusion on this topic.
The Garmin T-5 has been approved by both the Field Dog Stud Book and the AFTCA for use in competition during the 2014-15 field trial season.
