So there's 3 horses to carry a proposal before the WFTF
When I try to stick to the seating issue, I'd say nothing needs to be carried forward IF the WFTF refers us back to the NGB rules.

Question is if we want this, because it will create inconsistencies, and (referring to the case in point) unfair advantages for shooters that are local, and will have made preparations that work around the NGB's rules, which foreign competitors will not have made.

If I were to have anything to say about it, I'd suggest something like "one seat, without extrusions to provide additional support other than to use as a seat, or to support the leg on kneeling shots."

Caveat: I haven't been a member of the Dutch governing body for (why did I type three? it's) ten years, so if there is an interest to get this changed, I'd have to refer this to someone who is.
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
