The BFTA introduced 'Open Class' so people could choose not to shoot kneelers and standers.
Yet there are still posts about banning all rules and restrictions on kneelers ... because it's too uncomfortable/difficult etc.
So if people don't want the extra challenge of shooting kneelers ( a fraction like properly ), and my first two sentences don't apply, why don't they shoot in the 'Open Class'?
Wanting to be in the main class, so you are not considered weird, but wanting kneelers to not really be kneelers isn't really the same.
this has gone off on a tangent some what. as i am the OP, i was enquiring to how the position came about, as it is not how a new shooter not accustomed to the rules would shoot. this was answered in a previous post.
thanks for the info, time for this thread to be put to bed before someone blows a fuse.
