From the last debate we had on this subject the one good idea that came out was an all sitting class, this class could run along side all the competitions we hold, I think it only fair if you qualify for the Showdown while using the all sitting class your opponent should be allowed to go all sitting for that round only. This new class would be open to everyone who would like to enjoy a days shooting but without the discipline shots. To the many shooters from around the country who contacted me on this subject please talk to your local rep so it comes to the BFTA meeting this way if the majority of Regions agree we can get the existing disabled rules removed and replaced with the all sitting class.
Just throwing an idea into the open to see what happens but why not do away with positionals altogether, making the competition all seater?
