Think of it like this.
You travel to any club that is putting on a shoot, and once you start you can only shoot say half the course due to some reason, just imagine how frustrated you would feel, let alone disappointed, not at the club but yourself.
The clubs only follow the rules, and thankfully rules can be changed to make things better.
Unlike loosing your vision

@rogb I understand where you are coming from but I only shoot at clubs affiliated to the UKAHFT. As stated yellow on black KZ may be good for those with good vision but luminous Yellow on black KZ is good for all shooters. It would be nice to think that the UKAHFT and all clubs actually think about everyone that shoots at there grounds and would happily adopt the colour choices whether UKAHFT affiliated or not.
If you can spray paint a target yellow, you can just as easily spray it luminous yellow
I couldn't agree more, are you talking about Day Glo yellow when you say luminous?
I struggle to see the yellow in Autumn colours too, but once I get my scope on the kill area, it's usually not a problem.
Before the UKAHFT yellow/white rule, you came across all kinds of daft colour schemes that turned HFT into an eyesight test. I remember once at MAD years ago having to take a 0 because I couldn't find the plate so eventually I just shot into the ground and went on to the next peg. Very frustrating!
PlastiKote do a dayglo yellow spray - 400ml for around £7 - may be worth a try on a suitable primer base?
