Gas detector scoring

Dear Fluka-users

I would like to score the number of "counts" per primary particle in a gas detector. The gas detector has a dead time long enough that only the first secondary created by the primary particle will be registered. I tried a boundary-crossing current estimator between the shell and the gas, but this will give an overestimation, because all secondaries crossing the boundary will also be counted.
Is there a way to calculate the amount of the correction, which will probably become larger and larger with increasing energy and more secondaries available. Or cab I somehow calculate the correct number straightforward ?

Thank you for your help,
