Why were there so many DQs for the 2017 USPSA Armscor Rock Island MultiGun Nationals?
I counted something like 252 entrants and 12 DQs; is that a lot?

There are lots of safety rules in 3-gun and Uspsa that take safety way beyond the four basic rules of gun safety. Hell breaking the 180 really isn't unsafe. I definitely don't use it when hunting birds. Neither is having a safety off and a round stuck in the tube of your shotgun when setting it down. I could go on. When you have 250+ people shooting 200-300 rounds each running around like their a$&hole is on fire some of those super safe safety rules are going to get broken. We all live on the edge when shooting competitions. Sometimes you slip over. I know I've DQ'd almost as many times in 6 years as they had DW in this match.
5% of people running with guns are breaking basic safety rules. That's pretty high.

6% at Limited nationals. Unsafe SOBs!!! I'm sticking to IDPA! You're not allowed to run in that sport, right?
You can't run with that much weight on your gut and bad knees. No need to even address it in the rulebook.
