Also, any second rifle would have to go through the chronograph.
Of course, would stand to reason it would have to be checked to be legal.

I know, but hadn't thought of that angle, thanks for the reply

Hmmm, not having shot at any GPs, (have marshalled at a couple though) haven't seen that

Thanks Holly, must admit that I'd a feeling that this must have been asked before, which was why I was expecting something in the rules about it - mind you "Start a kit chase"? What have we at the moment, with people buying ever more complicated rifles with more & more bells & whistles on them, higher mag/bigger scopes that have bits on to tell you that you're canted, 'windicators' that tell you the wind is blowing from such and such direction (at the firing point)???????????????????

Many thanks to those who've contributed so far, nice to see the various attitudes towards a casual comment between two shooters at a club regarding the sport

Me, I just shoot for fun & can't ever see myself taking part in even the local Winter League, let alone GPs etc. etc. & will quite happily spend 2,3,4,5,6,7 or 8 hours putting pellets towards targets & not too worried over the results
