in UK's you have prone only, supported shots are 2 kneelers or standers & 2 standers. NEFTA hunter have no prone only but do have the 4 supported shots like UK's
If your response to the above is this ..

As regards nominated prone.....all pegs can be nominated as you wish,pegs not nominated are your choice. As it was HFT at an FT club believe me sister you have to nominate prone or they ain't gettin' their clothes dirty..lots of people who don't practice prone did not go prone on the day and were not penalised as it was just a bit of HFT fun. There was no threat of '0' s so just not going prone (as everyone else who didn't) would have been a better choice than confronting the course setter and demanding the 'prone' nominate be removed just for his delicate little personage.......
Why start a thread on here, asking this ..

Who was right? So over to you at 'the Breeze....
The answer to your OP is you were shooting to your own HFT rules rather than UKAhft rules, so shooters have to follow your rules on that day (but you already new that, whereas I thought you were asking a serious question - allbeit an odd one )
