    Is it just me or are about 50% of photos from the World HFT Kelmarsh shoot offs for top places showing shooters not touching the peg????

    That's because in shoot offs you don't have to

    as the daddy of HFT says
    also i would imagine there be a lot of pressure in a shoot off so that would be the last thing on your mind

    thats interesting coz during the shoot off I was in a few weeks back I had certain people saying while I was trying to take my shot, "make sure hes touching the peg".as I weren't under enough pressure.

    Interesting..

    "The peg must be touched by some part of the body/rifle as the shot is taken. Almost any position is allowed including resting the body on anything available within reach."

    As taken from the UKAHFT website with regard to Shooting Positions, no mention I can see on website for shoot off rules, therefore standard rules apply?

    As per Sparky's comment!!!!

    The current UKAHFT rules state that shots taken in a shoot-off do not require the shooter to touch a peg...

    Also taken from the UKAHFT website
    There's no mention of a peg as one is not needed its just the shooting lane on the course was used.

    PLACINGS

    In the event of a tie for any of the first 3 x Open Class places a shoot-off will then occur, the targets used will be 1x15mm, 1x25mm & 1x35-45mm hit zone target (each target being placed within the standard UKAHFT ranges for that hit zone size). Each person will shoot all three targets from the kneeling position, if any competitors are still tied they will then shoot the targets in the standing position. If after this no winner is established then there will be sudden death shoot off. For 4th places and below the positions may be calculated using a count back system depending on number of shooters and time permitting.

    Competitors involved in the WHFTA shoot off at the weekend were all told at the start of the shoot off & before the each individually shot that they didn't need to touch the peg & only had to shoot from that general area, this also occurs at UKAHFT National shoots.

    Being involved in that shoot off i can confirm that prior to anyone taking a shot we where all told by Pete Dutton (Scooby) that we didnt need to touch the peg, we could position ourself anywhere behind the firing line that was comfotable.

    a bit strange though , that the rule changes for a shoot off
    its like saying there is no offside in extra time in football ...

    but as long as its the same for all shooters and they are all aware of the rule its no problem ...

    You haven't had touch the peg for years for the shoot offs in UKAHFT as normally shoot off lanes don't have a peg
