Help me out. I just looked at classification for Season 4 competitor Gabby Franco A69761, and with a current and high percentage of 34.58%, but she's listed as a "C" shooter.
My wife has a higher current and high percentage, 36.99, but she's still listed as a "D" shooter. What am I missing here?
I suspect it's because she came in 2nd D in Limited at the Area 5 match with a 40.1500%: http://www.uspsa.org...&guntype=Pistol
There were enough GM's at that match in that Division so the following item kicked in:
In addition, if the competitor shoots an Area Championship or major tournament and wins first or second in a class higher than his or her current classification, the member may be promoted to that higher class, except for Grand Master.
