Like others have said, this is a DQ'able offense according to USPSA and IDPA if you are moving between positions and not actively engaging targets.

but I'm a 'B' class shooter and only joined 6 weeks ago. Ummmm, you don't look all that great, honestly. Your classification? Yes, no one ever has videos...... Classified in 6 weeks, you must have only shot classifiers then, I'm surprised Sedro Wooly could process it that fast

That stage was one week after a bout with pneumonia, B Class Open.
Just because the RO didn't call it doesn't make it any less against the rules or unsafe. The length of time you've been shooting and your classification have nothing to do with how safely you handle a firearm or your knowledge of the rules. The fact that you've supposedly seen so many people shoot themselves and other people tells me that safety must be pretty lax in your area. Run around with your trigger prepped in any other part of the country (or world) and you'll be DQ'ed in a heartbeat.

I've got videos. I've got multiple upper-level classifications in IDPA (and I'm working on a couple in USPSA). I'm not going to post them. Most D-class Production newbies know to keep their fingers off the trigger while moving. In fact, it's one of the first things mentioned in new shooter briefings at EVERY club I shoot with- USPSA and IDPA.
