Please can I point out that I have been shooting the Current disabled Positions from a seat since 2005 - allbeit in B Grade gradually climbing towards A and until last year this argument was nowhere to be seen. Is it just that someone has actually managed to compete in A grade despite the pain and discomfort it causes for 2 or 3 days after a GP with a little sucess and now the 'Top Shots' feel threatened?
I would be ashamed make some of the comments that have appeared on this post about any other person and I am very offended for all the genuinely less able shooters out there that we have people in this sport who are happy to be derogatory and tell the world that they are!!!
The only disiplinary offence in this sport is 'Bringing the Sport into Disrepute'. If everyone on this thread was man enough to post their real name then there would be few poeple nearing this offence.

Beryl...i've just re-read the entire thread and really can't see where the rant comes from?
We are discussing something that is causing problems within a sport that we all love and trying to find a solution that would suit the majority of shooters. I have a BFTA card and have had a card for many years even though i've not shot much FT in the last few years. I'd like to think that entitles me to an opinion????
Some of the points on the thread have been well thought out and delivered....unlike yours.
And as for 'bringing the sport into disrepute'......fill your boots.
