Yes, i agree that the rules are very clear on this and supporting your gun in your forearm for a supported kneeler isn't allowed as the rule are written. I used to support on my fore arm, then someone correctly pointed out the written rule to me so a changed to supporting with my hands ony but this is not as comfortable. Since then i have spoken to Gary Chillingworth over this exact rule ( chief UKAHFT marshal) as i was seeing other doing it still and felt i was putting myself at a disadvantage. I was told that resting on my forearm was ok ( as when it on your Arm or the back of your hand). So now i have gone back to supporting on my forearm for supported kneelers, which to me is clearly not what is written in the rules. I think this needs some official clarification and maybe a photo or two added to the Ukahft website rules page. I don't what to be accused of cheating but do want to compete on a level playing field with everybody following the same set of rule.
