Don't leave a station with the last hit on steel

Saw a couple of people do this last week on a stage that had paper and steel from 4 shooting locations. 

I shot paper, paper steel and never missed and apparently got lucky.

 

Saw a couple people hit steel, run and the steel never fell. An pro came over and suggested "Never leave on steel" and now that makes sense.

I'll put steel first moving forward in areas there's paper and steel.

Seems like bad advice I also once followed. The real solution is to be confident in your shot calling. There WILL be situations where if your engagement order is in a way that you won’t shoot steel last you will be leaving time on the table.

What game ?  If its USPSA unless rule has changed.  Hit steel that doesnt fall is a Range failure and reshoot.
You shoot a stage in the most  efficient manner.  and hits arnt luck, its not a Turkey shoot. 
Not a pro, and dont dress like a Nascar dude but I know one thing. If you shoot to lose you will. Shoot to win you might.

Only if it fails calibration and only poppers are subject to calibration 4.3.1.5.  I'm not a M or GM shooter and just enjoy the competition.so happy to shoot a clean stage.

you didnt mention poppers,, yeh poppers have to fall..  Why you dont walk the line on power factor.. 
Again though,,, you shoot to get your best score,, shooting to guarantee "clean" will also guarantee you dont get your best score..
