When you set a standing lane it is natural to visualise the shot standing and easy to forget about sitting for the target.
Very few shooters use the prone position in very windy conditions to try for added stability , I don't think prone would be missed if it got dropped from the rules.
Not the rule.
The rule is - the target must be visible from a height of 21cm measured at the centre of the gate.
