Excessive disqualifications. IDPA policy requires that a stage with 3 DQs be reviewed for safety and that one with 5 or more DQs be dropped from the match. I heard that there were 6-8.
Start facing uprange, gun holstered and EMPTY, one magazine with 6 rounds only on belt. On signal, turn, draw, load gun, shoot 3x2 targets on the way to cover. At the first point of cover there is a satchel containing your reload magazines. Recover ammo, reload, and continue the course of fire.
Reportedly, there were people who, in spite of 40 years of El Prez, could not keep from drawing before turning. Also people who could not manage to pick magazines out of an open container without sweeping themselves.
There were 15 DNFs on the IDPA report. I figure most of them were DQs. I know two of them were, heard one shooter say so and saw another fault the muzzle safe.
