One other thing, I would guess the UK actually has more FT participants than a good many of the other member countries combined.
I think it is now time there is a proper set of WFTF rules to establish a full common standard for the world championships. This would not preclude individual member states doing what suits them best in their home countries, but for the puproses of world championship status there needs to be a level playing field.
I think 12ft.lbs energy limit is fine for the worlds - it makes a good challenge.
If the high power shooters don't like the idea - well sorry, but for way of comparison the 10m disciplines use a nominal 6ft.lbs limit and rimfire events don't allow rimfire magnum rifles so why shouldn't FT set a specified limit.
