I welcome the rule that positional shots must be able to be taken either side of the support and suit all heights. One would think this is common sense too, but we have all seen supported kneelers you can't take standing etc.

However, the distance contraints on elevated shots won't stop certain course setters from setting up neck-breaking targets, they will just puth them up higher. I like the close-range elevated shots, the aim points seem to defy physics.

What made the one at UKAHFT R6 particularly bad was the fact that right-handed people were facing downhill and the lane was marked as prone only (I was consiedering taking it standing). People without a palm shelf couldn't support their rifles properly. And for afternon shooters, the sun was right behind the taget.

Perhaps a limit on angle should be considered. 45 degrees anyone?
