Having read though the main shoot rules I think there are areas still open to abuse other than the kneeling definition.

Rule 10

d. The surface of the pad on which the stock rests must be flat and not shaped to provide lateral support to the stock.

Now in my reading here (off subject sorry but to make a point), those nice sand bags often used on hamsters when not full, hard and flat are ILLEGAL based on the above rule.

It's difficult to write every single detail into an instruction, I know from experience of writing detailed engineer guides.

The trick is to as they say keep it simple stupid :-) and cross the t's and dot the I's

Just my thoughts

That refers to the knee pad I think...
