Thats a good suggestion but would then require someone to maintain a register of all called targets and it could become a logistical nightmare for that person. Its all too easy for someone to say I got that and disrupt everyone else's concentration (not especially the marshalls) and think that a polite "thank you" after watching the marshall battle their way through brambles, obstacles and rivers to check a perfectly good target makes it all ok. There has to be some positive deterrent and the thought of losing another point would be such a deterrent. If at the end of the shoot the target was found to be faulty then the scores could be adjusted accordingly. If we don't do something soon then the negative impact could result in numbers declining and the reluctance of people volunteering to marshall such events where un necessary target calls are prevalent.
