Simon, no matter how you trim it the other regions won't stand as tall as the leading ones because in a sample of 1 2 or 3 or 4 even they don't have shooters with world and national titles hanging off their necks in comparison. So how would it change anything? Unless you make courses easy so there is no difference there will always be a difference so the result will be the same unless you change the strength of the teams. Changing numbers won't do that. That's like saying make the worlds team 2 people because 4 is too many for a country to muster.
I can name 10 strong shooters I've come across since shooting in swefta the past 5 years but half of them don't shoot anymore. But even with 4 or 5 or 6 the region isn't going to stand up to making the title theirs. The gap will be smaller perhaps but an inch is the same as a mile if you've run out of rope.
Sarpas team doesnt look too shabby. I can remember years when they didn't have more than a handful of shooters there. What's changed?
