I'm glad I shot my first GSSF. I was also surprised I performed better with my 26 than with my 17. I thought they allow re-shoots if you have a malfunction?It sure was wet. I posted a couple of pics in my album just a minute ago. I only had a few as the rain started in and only got worse throughout the day. The good news is I cut my times in half from Dawsonville. I had some room to work with though. lol.
Surprisingly, I shot my G26 better than my Gen4 G19. I also had a stovepipe in the middle of a string with the Gen4 G19 and it cost me at least 12 points. I paused briefly before I realized I had to clear and continue. It cost me 2 seconds AND most importantly I couldn't recall if I had fired 1 or 2 on the target I was on so I moved on. Come to find out I had only fired 1 so it cost me a MISS. OUCH!!!
I thought so too. The RO that was timing me said you only get a re-shoot if the malf can't be cleared. I didn't push it as I wasn't expecting to be shooting FTW anyway. I am curious though and will go check the rules and post back.I thought they allow re-shoots if you have a malfunction?
Reshoot: When a competitor's score cannot be recorded,
or a non-shooter-induced malfunction occurs, a range
officer or the Range Master will allow the competitor
to shoot the stage again for score.
I guess it comes down to the type of malf and if the RO determines/opines if it is user or equipment induced. In my case ... a stovepipe ... I'm guessing the "on the fly" opinion would be user induced ... thus no re-shoot. I prob could have pushed it and got one but it isn't worth it. If I were shooting for the win .....RO Notes: Re-shoots can be awarded to the competitor in the case of
range equipment malfunction or failure or due to scoring
errors or omissions. If competitor has an equipment or
ammunition failure, competitor may have one re-shoot
attempt at a "clean" run. If shooter has a second such
malfunction, shooter is to remove the faulty equipment and
ammunition from the line and allow the match to proceed.
Competitor should consult the Armorer or change
ammunition or otherwise take whatever steps are necessary
to correct the problem. Once corrected, shooter is
allowed to re-shoot the Course of Fire to obtain a "clean"
run for final score.
I didn't see it happen, but from your description I thought you should have gotten a re-shoot based on what I have seen at matches including this one.Two applicable sections in the GLOCK Report (The Rules) ...

14/63 is better than 35/87. I'll take that.Looks like 8th out of 63 amateurs in subcompact with VolGrad at 14th.
After I got done at the 5-Glock, I moved on to the next stage expecting the others to do the same. I kept looking around wondering where y'all were.14/63 is better than 35/87. I'll take that.
Speaking of .... where the heck were you all day? We lost you after the sign-in and no one saw you again until we were all pretty much finished? Your guys kept asking us, "Where's the Chief?"
