If it helps, speaking for myself, I personally find the disabled Keeling position no advantage and only get approx 50% of them, but at least I'm trying to take the shot as closely as possible to the normal stance. Back in 2006 when I won the SWEFTA Championship and was taking the kneelers in the normal position I was far more stable and probably got 90-95% of them. RobF also poster earlier that he was more stable in the conventional position......

I don't know, but perhaps the bigest problem is with the alternative standing position only, I certainly know that when people suggest that taking a kneelers as a stander, that would then be a real disadvantage to most!
Hi Tony,
I have already said the same thing in a post somewhere. When three Tondu AA class shooters tried the positions we found the kneeling averaged out. One (me) found the disabled stance no easier or harder than the kneeling position I use. One found it easier, one found it harder.
However, all three of us found the standing position far more stable. That for me and i think most other AA shooters is the problem. An advantage is agained from the current disanled standing position?
