Is it therefore now time to allow the use of windicators on the end of a rifle, rather than people feeling the need to purchase a vaping device or hope that they are shooting with someone who has one or who smokes.
Pete are you classifying leaves , fibres , paper etc as windicators ? , I couldnt find any details in the ft rules exactly what a windicator is , let alone hft rules ,
my interpretation is something fixed to your rifle, that can be seen the same time as pulling the trigger.
By the time youve dropped grass leaves , fibres like wool , tiny bits of tissue and get down on the peg , get in the zone , the whole scene may have changed , maybe think about natural products found at the peg would narrow it down if someones ridiculously ott about the environment ,
