All shots, from whatever shooting position must be made with the competitor wholly behind the firing line but able to touch it."
going by this you coud NOT put foot over the line upto this year since "the competitor wholly behind the firing line" would mean you have to keep the foot behind the line since the foot is (of course) part of the competitor.
"For 2011 the BFTA Main Shoot Rules, Rule 10 ii. now states:
All shots, from whatever shooting position must be made with the rifle’s muzzle wholly beyond the firing line and the rifle’s trigger wholly behind the firing line.
this rule allows the foot over, just not the rifle trigger, you just have to make sure the muzzle is over the firing line, not putting your foot over the line could be very hard while also making sure the muzzle is over (depending on position of course) so i presume thats why the "the competitor wholly behind the firing line" from last year wasnt inclueded
