Not sure I 100% understand your post.

If it helps -

in a 30 shot UKAHFT comp there must be;

  • 3 x Prone ONLY shots
  • 1 x un-supported Standing shot
  • 1 x un-supported Kneeling shot
  • 2 x supported Standing shots
  • 2 x supported Kneeling shots
This leaves 21 lanes, which can be taken kneeling, standing or prone (the peg must be touched by some part of the body/rifle as the shot is taken) - and the majority of shooters obviously opt to take prone, as its more stable, especially when able to use the peg as a support.

If it was UKSARC comp then thats a different kettle of fish (my understanding is that in a SARC comp, the shot may be taken standing, kneeling or prone from anywhere within a designated area marked with pegs).
