At no time have you been allowed to support the rifle by dropping your hand onto your knee or supporting the rifle on you leg or arm.

The position Steve has highlighted has previously been allowed but clearly some shooters are now resting their rifles on their legs which has never been allowed. As we canít police every shooter or sometimes see whether or not they are resting on the leg in such a crouched position this position has now been banned.

3 points of contact ?
