I had an IDPA practice today that I really wanted to attend as one of our shooters was bringing back some tips from Bob Vogel and stages were going to be set to accomplish this - but I was totally beat. My entire body was stiff and nearly immobile this morning, and I hadn't loaded mags last night because I went to bed early. Stopped 4 times when driving home only 400 miles. I must be more out of shape than I ever considered. That was one looooong weekend. If I'd had even one more ounce of fun, I wouldn't have lived through it. I'm still in my jammies... Oh-oh, TMI!

2. shoot 2 more divisions - back off line for another shooter
3. shoot final divison entry
The Glock Report:

110.50 Handling multiple competitor entries. Competitors
entering more than two divisions will only
be allowed to shoot two consecutive entries in
succession, except that a competitor who has
no more than three entries may shoot them
in succession if no one in the squad objects.

From the 2012 GSSF RO Guide:

Multiple entries by an individual should be signed in on successive
lines. However, with one exception only two entries may be fired in
succession. After firing two entries the competitor should step off the
line and allow another competitor to shoot their one or two entries. The
first competitor may then return and fire his or her third and fourth
entries, repeating this procedure as necessary. The range officer or
competitors may arrange the squad scoresheets to comply with this rule
AFTER they have been squadded.

If a competitor has three total entries and no one else in the squad
objects, that competitor may shoot all three entries back to back to back.
If anyone in the squad objects, the competitor will shoot his or her three
entries in the normal “shoot two, step off the line for another
competitor’s entry (or two entries), return and shoot the third entry”

I think Express stages could work well if they were limited to those who are shooting three or more divisions. Those shooters would also need enough pre-loaded magazines to enable them to really shoot through.
Ann this is my theory exactly. Guy walks up and as many magazines he has loaded,in a sleeve on the table is how many div he can shoot.
