Just a small point on the "have to shoot standing if you cant kneel" ruling. It states in the BFTA Disabled position document (which NEFTA have agreed to abide by. see Page 8 Appendix 2).

The BFTA is obvious to the fact that some shooters are not as able bodied as others, wether it be through ilness, disease, accident or some other reason, temporary or permanent disablement can occur. With the previous statement in mind the intention is to accomodate disabled shooters by giving latitude within rule 10. Thus enabling the disabled shooter to use an adapted stance for the compulsary Kneeling and/or Standing targets. This latitude must not give an advantage nor disadvantage to the shooter, but enable the person to compete on reasonably equal terms with the rest of the contestants.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but having to shoot standing instead of kneeling is a disadvantage so therefore goes against the rules .
