    I use a big bag and can kneel entirely legally. If someone isnt legal they arent trying hard enough.

    Ah good - a kneeling thread :)

    Something to keep me entertained until the Canon v Nikon thread on the photography forum kicks back off again :D

    Not sure if that would be legal in FT. I think you used to require consent from the chief marshal to do this. Although - it's been a while and I could be talking rubbish :)

    There is one full proof solution, exclude the kneeling position and take all shots sitting or standing. :lev

    Why both?

    For instance a pretty level kneeler is ok but an elevated shot may cause the shooter discomfort so he can take it more comfortably without pain in his ankle by taking it standing.

    That shooter has to take both standing? Strange one.

    To stop people simply electing to take one of the shots standing if it makes it a much easier shot.

    Surely standing is "more difficult" than kneeling?

    Generally I'd say yes. Maybe the short kneeler is very elevated and some people may decide it is easier to take standing.
    The idea of the standing option is a concession to those unable to take the shot kneeling.
    It's not meant to be used as a convienient alternative.
