    Just to check that I am understanding the timing rules for GP's.

    2 minutes max timed for a 2 target lane. The time starts from when the scope is put to the eye, not from the point when you sit down?

    Thanks.

    Yes, when eye first looks through scope. So you have plenty of time to get settled, etc. 2 mins is more than enough for sitters but you can use it up for kneelers, standers depending on how you approach range-finding. Then again, on a windy day waiting for the right moment can get you to the countdown :)

    Thanks Neil. That is how I understood things but thought I'd best check.

    I have been out of fT for about 14 years so it will take me abit of time to get back into the swing of things , for that though. I just have to get used to shooting the breeze now:eek:
