    Theoretical Question:

    You finish a flawless stage pero when the Ro yells the time , yu think sobrang taas ng time mo , let's say around 5-10sec more than the average time.
    You refuse to sign the scoresheet of course, any chance ma contest mo ang time and get a reshoot?
    How about kung less than 5 sec lang over the ave time?

    Its possible that he tapped the timer by accident. Count the number of shoots in the timer as against your actual shots. Happened to me once, but I was the RO.

    Regarding your question, I'm interested to know the answer myself.

    Hi :)
    I don't race, Oliver... does a typical match allow enough ammo
    per person to cover such reshoots?

    shooter is responsible to bring spare ammunition in anticipation of possible re-shoots:)

    for level 1 matches, i usually bring 200 rounds, for level 2, 400 rounds

    There is a whole chapter dedicated to arbitration and interpretation of the IPSC Handgun Competition Rules since occasional disputes are inevitable in any competitive activity.

    Basically, the shooter (competitor) should refer to the Range Officer initially. If he disagrees with the decision of the RO, the Chief Range Officer for the stage or the area in question should be asked to rule. If a disagreement still exists, the Range Master must be asked to rule. Should the appellant (competitor/shooter) continue to disagree with the decision, he may appeal to the Arbitration Committee by submitting a first party appeal. The appellant is responsible for the preparation of the appeal and the delivery of the written submission together with the appropriate fee (yes, you have to pay a fee) to the Range Master within the prescribed period of time which is within one hour of the disputed incident.

    Hahaha.

    Not really. Sometimes the shooter/competitor/appellant wins and he is upheld by the arbitration committee.

    At the very least, there is an available machinery for you to ventilate if you're willing to pay the fee. :supergrin:

    Yap, what Mannix said. You normally bring enough buffer to last you reshoots for every stage. And if it's an all-steel match, bring at least three times the amount required. :supergrin:

    Although, in the unlikely even that your handle happens to be Singlestacker or gundog, you can actually bum for some ammo from your fellow shooters. Hope and pray, though, that you can get enough for that reshoot. ;);) :supergrin: :supergrin:

    Hahha, I know what you mean. ;)

    For me, IF it's a worldshoot or (maybe) a level 3 match, I'd probably arbitrate or seek help from the RM. Pero yung mga local na laru-laro lang, I don't think I'd sweat it. Tayo-tayo lang din naman palagi'ng nagkakasama, so the "bad vibe", for me, isn't worth it. ;)

    Unbless siguro kung prod shooter ka na naka glock tapos adjustable rearsights gamit mo...nyahehehehe!!!!! :supergrin: :supergrin: :supergrin: peace!!!, wag mo ko i-double charge ha...

    When I was still in the Philippines, there were a couple of shooters from another gun club who protested and requested that an RO be replaced from the bay. They suspected that the RO was intentionally tapping the timer whenever the shooters from another gun club shot, so that their times will be higher.

    That was never proven, but it sure ruined the day.:frown:
