Exceptionally well run - my squad never had to wait for more than 2 shooters in the previous squad finishing up. The luck was decent and their system for feeding that number of people smoothly and efficiently was perfect. They set a tough standard for the next A7 host club to meet.

Thanks, That's it. Man, there were a lot of DQs. Seems high considering the number of shooters.

There were a lot, and there are a lot of people who came closer than they probably realize to joining the ranks of the unfortunate. Some still don't realize it even after I explained it to them [frown]

I guess I almost dqed.
I was warned by another shooter, it's dqable if I take my belt off with gun in holster, but no mags, at the safe table?
but if I took gun out of holster, then I'm ok?
is that correct?

5.2.1 Carry and Storage – Except when within the boundaries of a safety area, or when under the supervision and direct command of a Range Officer, competitors must carry their handguns unloaded in a gun case, gun bag or in a holster securely attached to a belt on their person (see Rule 10.5.1). A competitor who, while not at a safety area or under RO supervision, removes their holster or their equipment belt with their handgun still in the holster, shall be considered to be in violation of Rule 5.2.1 and subject to disqualification from the match

A holstered gun is not considered holstered if the holster is not attached to a belt on your person. In other words, outside of a safety area, a holstered gun (not on person) is not the same as a cased gun. Maybe thats what they were getting at?

Once again, one of the finest Area 7 matches I have been at.

If I shot the match as well as it was run, I'd be at least "M".

so it sounds like I'm ok taking the belt off, as long as I'm at the safe table, whether my gun is in the holster or not

I think the idea is to have control of your gun. Taking the belt off with a pistol still in the holster can result in the muzzle pointing in the wrong direction.
