The problem with that Trev is where a shooter takes both kneeling and standing in the disabled position.

I also think the old method was better. as a course builder, I keep stats for all the courses i build to see who hit and missed what. thus I know what targets will take marks of Aa,a etc. I would rather say to a shooter ok, no standing but shoot targets x & y twice as i know i would be setting him .her as differcult a shot as the standing lane targets.

I may be wrong, but i thaught Ian's point was using the disabled positions gives an easier shot.
Having tried both, as an eabled bodied shooter(apart from when i put on weight!) our findings were the disabled kneeling position seemed to give neither an advantage or disadvantage.

however, its the standing shot where the disabled position is far more stable. Thus, if i shoot 4 standing targets in a Gp i would hope to hit 2 or 3 usually, very occasionaly 4
However, in the disabkled oposition i would be expecting to hit 4. Thats where it is not a level playimng field for me.

How many people commenting on this subject have actually shot a number of targets in the disabled position???
