Oh, sorry, my comment was in no way a criticism of the course - no one sets an FT course with prone shooters in mind, in fact it would create a lot of unnecessary extra work to clear every lane for prone.
That was the point - if no one sets courses for prone, the prone definition puts you at an instant disadvantage and it's so rare for anyone to ever attempt to shoot prone - why do we have a definition for it at all?
