I don't know many laws that would be lane specific - but I'm no expert in German firearms legislation.

"The feet of the shooter may not touch the ground mark of the firing line."

I am not sure what "the ground mark of" is, but this seems to suggest that the feet may not touch "the mark on the ground that marks the firing line".

Which seems to indicate that the WFTF rule change IS implemented.
The reason why it does not apply to all lanes is because "There are some lanes where this is impossible and such cases are treated as exceptions. In such cases the muzzle must be in front of the ground marking and the trigger behind it."
I am not sure why, on some lanes, this would be impossible... except if they mean that the feet must remain behind the firing line.

Confusion ensues.
The Filthy Pig: Air Arms 100 (1990) + AA Olympic trigger + Welham reg + Custom Shop CS1000 stock. Status: leaking.
The Unknown Quantity: AA EV2 Mk4. + BSA Platinum 10-50x60 + Jon Harris wheel. Status: sorted up to 25 yds.
The Limping Dog: Air Arms Shamal (1989) + unknown origin sporter stock + Optisan Cobra 3-9x42. Status: slowly leaking; needs work.
The Ox: HW97k + Venom Lazaglide. Status: working just fine; needs scope.
with apologies to NJR100
