The prohibition against pointing your gun up range is not just a range rule -- it is a fundamental safety rule.
Here's one from yesterday at Area 7 that my son earned a DQ. I went over this particular stage with him several times explaining how easy it would be to break the 180. "Muzzle down range,shoulders square". He changed his plan at the buzzer and went left instead of right to start, on the way back he was DQ during a reload. Hopefully he'll learn from this and just maybe he'll listen to dad some damn day, but I doubt it.
I really wish we had video from Stage 2 of Knuckle Dragger. He took an amazing head first tumble running from the first port the second port. He did a super human job of keeping the gun pointed downrange. He managed to finish the stage and prevent being "popper ****ed" on stage 4.
19 DQ's, fair amount for 300 person area match, must have been pretty technical. Got a couple GM's.
