For wjat it's worth I completely agree with this point Steve.
If anybody can turn up, pay a fee and shoot in a world championship then it isn't a world championship. Qualification based on performance should be required, it should be possible to set a criteria that means that the top few shooters from each country compete for the title world champion.
