If it can be shot every day it's common power. Yes, it's damn rare except for that one place but that one place exists and it runs there every day. Been to many a place in my life that I shot...

It is a bit cluttered, but I think in the end you probably just lost a game of screener roulette (another screener may have taken it).

Wow - I've had comments NOT accepted because I used ellipses (comments were actually grammatically correct but I guess the unusual punctuation confused the moderators). Amazing that got through.
