What difference is there in that definition between an Olympic jacket and a motorcycle jacket for instance.

Is a Creedmoor Jacket an Olympic style jacket - what features of it make it an Olympic jacket?

There are two problems with trying to ban target jackets - firstly you'd need to define what they are and secondly so many people use them now and have invested a lot of money in them that it's unlikely to get passed by the BFTA committee and voting reps, many of whom have shooting jackets themselves.

It's a nice idea, but I think it's too late now and not practical.
Valid point Bri......the rules are many and various in HFT and Gimp coats are a no no but i do remember a shooter in 2008 wearing a very tight fitting motorbike style jacket.

Edit - when new bits and bobs creep in, it detracts from what is FT for me.
