Sorry Pete, that wasn't quite what I meant. I meant that UKAHFT have the same problem in that where something is not defined as being legal, or not mentioned in the rules as such, then shooters assume that everything isn't mentioned, is legal. I wouldn't want to mention specifics as I'm not sure how Pete handles and announces rule changes, but this is based upon a conversation last week with Pete, where he shared his exasperation of having to make or change a rule to deal with something that is generally accepted as being illegal, but isn't actually in the rules.

I think all sports can learn and look at each other as to how rules are made, interpreted, and enforced.
