PS not knocking emley here just using it as an example .
Are people really going to travel 540 miles just to shoot a 40 target course?may as well save your money and shoot the winter league's.
The whole idea of a gp is a test of stamina and nerve,why make it easier?can you imagine how many would be in the shoot off's at the end of it,everyone would be clearing it,it would be boring.
What ever time you would gain,would be lost in sorting out the shoot off's.
Let your shooting do the talking.
It's not the aim and release that decided the shot, it's the preparations.
