Ahhh. Yes. I hadn't considered humidity and ambient temperatures. Silly of me
So the shooters who look like pregnant mums are really just adequately proportioned and relaxed males, who are wearing gimps that have shrunk due to use, and are well past their sell-by-date ?

I might have known that there would be a plausible explanation I stand corrected.

PS: thanks for the suggestion that I'll still be around in a couple of seasons time. That's encouraging
