i,ve heard tales of lads running about with aircylinders over their shoulder then suddenly shooting disabled class.......
maybe it could be time to invent a new shooting position to take the place of kneeling but is obviously more challengeing than sitting....
or replace the kneeling shots with 2 maximum distance reduce kills and 4 standers.
i thoroughly enjoy fieldtarget shooting in its current form but i,m always open to change or progress ......
I could quite happily walk the course carrying a 12 litre cylinder but if I kneel in a shooting position ie knee bent right back then my ligaments tear and I end up not being able to walk for 2 to 3 weeks until they heal, I know because this now happened to me twice and I am not prepared to risk it a third time for anyone I also can't work during that time

I have no problem taking the shots standing but some argue this can give an advantage

There is no way I would consider myself disabled but if I can't kneel and can't take the shots standing what other option do I have apart from not shooting those lanes.
