What's the call?

First firearm in the stage is rifle.  Shooter brings his .45 Colt rifle to the line, inadvertently loaded with .38 Special rounds.  Cycles the rifle to start the stage, and a cartridge is chambered, slides down the barrel, and lands on the ground downrange of the shooting position.

 

The question is: did a round go downrange and is the shooter, thus, committed to the stage?

 

(yes, this happened)

Shooter did get a restart. But after every body stopped laughing I told him we should consider those three or four rounds that were cycled as rounds downrange. He took it in the manner it was intended. He's a good sport but he did take a little ribbin about that.

That brings back memories.  Out practicing with 2 near identical 1911's... a 45 and a 9mm....    I think you can see where this is going....Yep...wrong mag... rack the slide... 9mm ROUND goes "plop" onto the ground..... ;D
