What's the call

Another good example why the only person to speak or give commands to the shooter is the TO.

Well, there are exceptions, I did along with others on another stage. The shooter had a squib in her pistol.
Unsafe actions would be another reason where other members on a posse should intervene. Example, a target setter starts down range but shooter still has another gun to fire. I saw it happen a couple times, shouldn’t happen but sometimes people aren’t paying attention.

    I was a TO for a shooter when there was a suspected "by the peanut gallery" squib. They all hollered squib on about the 2nd round from the revolver. The shooter started to ground the revolver. I said no its not, that wasn't me. Keep going. The shooter kept going and finished with one miss. That was the round I seen land in front of the target when they all hollered squib. Had the shooter grounded the revolver and no squib found, there would have been no grounds for a reshoot.

 Maybe the spotter with the loud mouth should receive a  penalty. 

 

Just from the description it sounds like it "Should Be" a SPIRIT OF THE GAME penalty for the spotter, but the rules don't currently address harassment from the peanut gallery like it should.

I was running the timer at a monthly shoot when a loudly shouting spotter caused a relatively, (under 1 yr.) new shooter to pause in confusion.  I had the shooter stop, go to the ULT, gather himself and then reshoot.  Talked to the spotter, but they feel adamant that they were in the right.  It was not a safety related holler.
