Nothing has changed in terms of their grounds for use, just that someone might now be in with a chance of winning. What I find a little strange is that as far as I'm aware no-one has actually won a national event with these adapted positions, yet the possibility of an occasional disabled success threatens to wreck the sport?

The problem there i think stems from the fact that not many able bodied shooters had tried the new positions.
Now more have tried it and have seemingly all come to the same conclusion in that the standing position offers far more stability and thus hit rate, the kneeling one perhaps on par, its the fact taking the shot in the disabled position now makes it an easier shot that i see the problem.

Level playing field it is not at present.
