As to shooting, the chair was not touched while breaking the shot. Been doing it this way for years.
From rule 14 for FT worlds 2011:
"The shooter can measure distance in sitting
, standing or kneeling position but to shoot they have to respect shooting position as indicated in the lane table."
"The use of pillow in sitting
or free position is allowed."
and rule 10:
"The maximum height of the pillow is 10 centimeter
, including backs"
10 cm, not 10 inches as your chair/stool...
