I'm very much involved in the stats for my region, and in my experience the only time I get questions about 'being put in the wrong grade' it is always from the point of view of someone who wants to be put in a grade lower than their ability.

Giving anyone a zero will skew the grading data to everyone else's detriment and plays into the hands of those who want to take trophies from the lower grades.
Yes, I see that now. I find that just alien and such folk should be made unwelcome. Scoring well in target shooting is all about skill, knowledge and in the outdoors a bit of luck. Getting things "right" on the day is the most satisfying thing, comparing a score with those of the higher grades is all that matters to me.
