    USPSA Rules: You make the call

    Major match. Stage is 22 rounds comstock requiring three positions to shoot the stage. One position is low under a wall. There is no fault line in this position. Most shooter squatted or knelt on one knee.

    Someone asked during the stage briefing about penalties for faulting the non existent line. The CRO responded that toes or feet under the wall a little bit would be no penalty but if we got too far under there would be a penalty. The shooter asked how we could receive a penalty for faulting a line that was not there. The rangemaster already ruled that it could be done was the response.

    My video below shows the stage. I am sort of shooting it prone.

    What do you all say?
    No one is stronger or more dangerous than the man who can harness his emotions.

    Poor stage design/construction. No penalty.

    ^Agreed. Depending on how many shooters had been through the stage, add a fault line or toss the stage. Can't be consistent on what is "too far" under the wall.

    Yup, no penalty. You can't make a call on something that is not there.

    You talking about the 2 black lines on each side of the screen?

    It was stage 1, @ 1:04 on coach's video, the far right wall, no fault line under.

    1. Poor stage design.
    2. If the rangemaster really "ruled" on it and said anything other than "you can't assess any penalty" then that person should re-take the Level I RO class.
    3. Why the hell didn't they just add a fault line if they recognized an issue with the poorly designed stage and had the RM "rule" on it? That's lazy beyond even my laziness.

    Changes the stage. It would have to be thrown out.

    Who was the competitor?

    I have a history of wanting to throat punch that RO anyway
