Who would enforce those rules? And how?
The WFTF does not put on the shoots, it simply decides which country will host it, after that it is up to the National organisation to get the show on the road.
Would you be happy for the BFTA or EFTA to put in a load of work to organise a three day shoot over three courses and then an unconstitutional body you have almost no say in tells you what you can and cannot do with regards to shoot rules.
Maybe that you can only use .22 cal springers of a certain model from a certain manufacturer, or maybe only use ammunition supplied by the WFTF, or any number of other self serving and bizarre rules which could quite easily be imposed.
As has been said, a quicker way to kill off the Worlds would be pretty hard to find.
