Again the club I play with has FPS limits, not targets. Therefore it doesn't give leeway because you should really be under the limit anyway. Now if it was 1 or 2 fps, maybe that would be at the discretion of an admin on a case-by-base basis. 15-20? No way.

And I have seen it happen - guns hotter than the player thinks or often players won't know the muzzle energy of their own gun (it's new, they're new, etc) or weather changes push a near-limit gun over. They are usually surprised and then someone else lends them a conforming gun so they can play anyway.

This isn't universal - there are lots of groups and clubs with varying rules and guidelines that might allow it.
