The sitting class is the way to go with this debate, it allows everyone who either can't stand or kneel or simply hates them to compete on a level playing field. You often hear new shooter say the reason they don't compete is because they can't hit the standers and the kneelers. It would make an excellent feeder class for people starting to compete.

We could then loose the disabled badge attached to people who are not disabled but for whatever reason have injuries, which prevent them from competing on a level field. If you are not registered disabled, you are not classed as being disabled. The first thing the BFTA need to establish through the regions and clubs is how many shooters we have that are registered disabled who compete at club, regional and national levels and an idea of the number shooters carrying injuries who would prefer a sitting competition.
