WTC procedural or miss?


Make do

Having a hard time scoring this:  The scenario specifies 5 rounds pistol through window A - 5 rounds  pistol through window C: rifle 10 rounds through window B ( A - B -C) Shotgun anywhere 2 knock downs.  Rifle cant be last. Shooter shoots 5 rounds from window A no misses, makes a mistake and cocks 6th realized the problem and fires it into the berm moves to window C completes the sequence no other misses. Then uses the shotgun and takes both knockdowns. Finally goes to the rifle and no misses.  So is it a procedural for the sixth shot from the wrong window or a miss plus a procedural for the rifle being last.  Reason I ask is the procedural committed as soon as the round is fired from the wrong window before it missed?  From what I can gather from the flow chart it should be just a procedural. And the answer is?

I would call a procedural and a miss, because he didn't hit all 5 pistol targets in window  C with his 4 remaining bullets. The miss didn't cause the procedural, in case that was you problem. The rifle didn't matter. He already had the procedural from the second pistol from the wrong window. IMHO

He got the P when he shot the 6th shot from window A.  Because it didn't hit a pistol target, it is a miss.  He can negate the pistol miss by reloading one shot at window C and shoot the targets there.   The procedural remains.   One can only get one procedural so shooting the rifle last is not an issue.

    Procedural for shooting at the wrong position and if the shooter did not reload round he fired into berm 1 miss. Shooter could have hit an available pistol target with the 6th round at the 1st position and avoided a miss. Second option is to fire round into berm, then reload load 1 round and hit proper type of target  at the second position.

The miss is for the 6th shot failing to hit a pistol target.

If a firearm is shot out of sequence or from the wrong position or location, the shooter will be assessed a single procedural penalty. In this situation, if the shooter elects or is forced to miss an appropriate target due to unsafe angles or target availability, a round may be reloaded to avoid a miss penalty assessment (the dreaded “Double Jeopardy” of a procedural and a miss). This does not mean a shooter may reload a rifle or revolver at any other time to make up a miss.
