I was at the meeting that voted in the new rules.
I don't have a vote.
The 15mm reducers were voted: for 6 and against 1 (MFTA).
The 25mm reducers were voted: for 4 and 2 against (MFTA and WAFTA) and 1 abstension (NWFTA).
I think the must was required or else there was no requirement to change. There was also a desire for consistency across the GP series.
The changes were voted in for one year and they'll be reviewed at the AGM.
I too am listening to shooters' views at the GPs but if their views are to be fully known then it is important that they are heard at the AGM in November.
If you have a view for change, or not, then attend your regional meeting so your BFTA rep knows what his/her region wants.
