I must clarify. The indoor shoot I was referring to was a GSSF indoor shoot. If it had been any other venue, then I definitely said something.
:rofl:Re-reading my post...I can see that it would seem that I was taking a dig at some on here. That wasn't my intent. I just scanned through the posts...not really paying attention to who said what.
The point I...poorly...tried to make was that everybody should get the same chance when in competition. The shooter in the video might not be out for a match win, but he beat some people.
I am sure there was no ill intent on the part of the shooter or the RO.
It's just such an easy fix (starting everybody the same).
For me... my post #9 states my position.:rofl:
Steve & Ron, that goes for you, too!! :tongueout:
As someone already said the RO's are volunteers. The difficult thing about a GSSF match, is that it takes a lot of RO volunteers. Many of the volunteers are trained USPSA Range Officers, however several I believe have no RO training period. They are just there trying to help out and support their range. Many of these RO's have never been to a Glock match, don't own a Glock, and don't know the rules...... Getting a 10 minute briefing in the morning is great, but they are not going to get everything memorized that quick unfortunately.
The best thing to do in a situation like this is to go inform the GSSF Rangemaster and let them correct the RO.
