ok as i am not going to get my thread back here is my view
gp2 was a poor course anyway -there could have been more thought put into it .
we cannot and should not put this down as an open as that is unfair to the shooters that hit the illegal targets (yes i missed all the standers )
what we should do is learn from it and ensure the rules are followed for the remainder of the gps
my view is the bfta or the shooters elect 2/3 people who are fully aware of the rules to vet the courses before any shooting takes place (i am sure this is what happens in hft )and it seems to work .
if a target is demed to be illegal it gets sorted before anyone is even on the firing line .
the rules on target distance and placment should be made clear to avoid any misinterpretaion
these are my views and anyway i think we should ban standers anyway
