It's a bit like allowing goal-line technology after the first month of the football season, all hell would break loose. Lets leave the unsupported kneelers as they were and change the rules at the end of the UKAHFT season, but educate all those who would be illegal in 2013 so that we are all sing off the same hymn sheet at the begining of the season
If hampsters allow support, then should they be banned? if so, what about butt plates and altered rifles to make allowance of peoples different shapes and stances. Taking this to a logical conclusion, why not shoot open sights only as optics give an advantage..!
We have altered the wording of the rules as some shooters have been using support that has NEVER been allowed in the rules, I'm not sure why we should worry about the impact on someones scores when they have previously been using an illegal position ?
Any shooters wishing to get confirmation on the legallity of their position or get an explanation of what is & isn't legal can come & see Pete Sparkes or myself, I will be available 07:30-08:30 both days at Emley Moor.
In the meantime please feel free to PM or email us with any specific concerns, with pictures of your position if you want.
I'll also try to get some pictures of what is & isn't legal at Quarry on Sunday & then stick them on the UKAHFT website on Monday
