I think sadly it probably will. Perhaps it just needs some time off or some people to come up with something that's a little bit easier. That was always the issue with it for me. It was damned hard which meant for those with entry level kit they needed non entry level skills in order to hit a fair amount of targets.
Perhaps if a few went out there and threw aspirations aside and showed that they could shoot it and enjoy it then others may join in and perhaps a proposal for a class reborn would be better received.
To me you could just say set mag max 12x, no parallax fiddling, shoot sitting.
The only thing that keeps piston alive is a few but even if it was scrapped with grades fixed you'd still find quite a few doing it.
I'm sure Richard would love some competition one way or another.
