I'm intrigued by why people would want hearing protection for FT, even the loudest PCP is nothing in comparison to say a .22 LR?

Some people are simply more noise sensitive than others and I prefer to do what I can to prevent future hearing degradation. Also bear in mind the fact that hundreds of shots are fired by me and my shooting buddies each session when training or competing, also that many match rifles have compensators that direct the sound back to the shooter and to shooting neighbors. Even if a shot taken by itself may not seem "too loud", it is the total exposure that matters.

That doesn't matter if you use a kneeling roll because the roll itself will mean there's a gap.
There you go Pete... saves all that effort of reading the thread

Also attached is the Annex to core rules, which are how the marshals will interpret common questions about the rules... suggest a read.

For EFTA shooter's we'll be sending this out on email over the weekend.

Come and find me at Anston and I'll go over it - but basically the thing to watch out for is that it doesn't look like your shin is touching the floor. If you shoot laces down with no kneeling roll, you can easily slip into a position (sometimes without realising it) where your whole leg is rested on the floor.

If you wear baggy trousers so that it just looks like that's what you're doing it may give rise to a warning about it.

I understand people are a bit agitated over the knee roll as yet another thing but got to say... few things over the years improved my kneeling position more than this simple little 20 quid cork granulate filled thing I got last week. No problems whatsoever, on the contrary.

Get the filling level just right and it works wonders I promise. Sure there is the option of going without but thats a way inferior option IMO. A knee roll weights a couple of 100 grams, no hassle at all and very easy to get used to.
