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
You must be really bored Dave. I have just given up the will to live reading this thread.
Nice to hear from you .
I only read the first 3 pages Dean
Yeh but you've set it to put 50 posts per page
Need a bag tag ?
Some advice for anyone not sure if they're kneeling position is legal..............Stand up & take the shot instead !
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
That would spoil the excitement I get flicking from one page to the other
You are indeed talking rubbish
There is one full proof solution, exclude the kneeling position and take all shots sitting or standing. :lev
Good - I think it should be a new rule though
Dave you are correct in NEFTA you must seek the marshals permition
But that rulling is not in the BFTA shoot rules o
BFTA main shoot rules, rule 10 ii
Lanes designated kneeling may be shot from the standing position (Both targets must be shot using the same position).

Thanks Harry - I thought I had come across it before
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.
