For a feed in start you can leave the firing line with the Chief Marshals permission but this is to repair equipment that is unsafe or unable to fire a shot by whatever means......so it looks like you are stuffed if the gun suddenly does 6ft/lbs.
Lets hope if it does happen you have a spare gun & a Chief Marshal who know which rule to follow
Whether its hft or FT, If your gun pack's up hard luck, I shot a G.P at anston a while back and one of my shooting partner's battery died..."A DAYSTATE"
He left the course to get a replacement gun....he took age's we fell 2 lanes behind waiting for him, When he finally came back, He had a replacement daystate
he went to take his shot......and guess what....the battery was knackere'd on that one as well...lol.. moral of the story....don't use a Daystate and keep people waiting...
ps sorry if ive posted on a hft thread pete and ive never shot a national hft round lol....I shot a few hft courses at kibworth many moons ago....does that count.
