    Could a member of the classic orgonising team check the rules for the sillis please
    as they seem to have just been lifted from the BFTA GP format

    At the classic shooting coats or clothing aiding stability have never been allowed
    but this seems to have been omited in this years rules

    I can't tell someone they can't wear a shooting jacket only for them to say show
    me the rule that says I can't

    This neads adressing ASP so that all shooter are aware and know the rules
    and can work to this end

    Aitch I'd like to know 2

    Gimp jackets

    Just a thought on this post....I myself wear a Shooting jacket for field target. commonly known as a 'Gimp Jacket'. And yes we`ll just say to save time that I am a gimp, no a dewarf cant gimp even. Now my points this, ban shooting jackets in the classic thats fine, I`m not wanting to see them used thats not what I`m driving at. But can someone tell me whats the difference between a gimp shooting jacket and you guest it, a padded motor bike jacket! Not a lot?? just a bit of anti slip rubber under the arms? who knows maybe an advantage. So if your changing the rules why not make it no leather padded jackets at all and give the chief marshall the power to assertain if he feels that the jacket being worn is a 'shooting jacket' and giving that competitor an advantage and so be made to remove it. The problem is what is a shooting jacket?

    chief marshall

    For this reason thats why I posted make it the Chief marshalls decision to decide if he feels that the clothing being worn is giving that competitor an advantage with what they are wearing.

    Andrew I don't have a problem pulling anyone with a padded jacket whome
    I feel may be pushing the spirit of the comp but the rule has to be there and
    at the moment it's not just an over sight that needs addressing

    thought shooting jackets only gave you an advantage while there tightly fastened with the buckles, hence why 10m shooters use them standing, also the tightly fastened straps would make it different to a motorbike jacket as they dont have them.

    Some moter bike jackets are like a second skin with a metal or plastic plate in the back to
    afford rigidity also the arms and shoulders are padded making them very stiff effectivly
    locking you in position.

    Trev Ryan has just confirmed that shooting style jackets are not allowed when shooting the Silhouette side of the NEFTA Classic, I've added this to the Classic rules on the NEFTA website

    the bike jackets that fit like a second skin offer no advantage to standing shooting, either with there padding in or with it taken out, i have triedit both ways and found them to be a disadvantage, with the padding in, in the forearms and elbow area the damn things are too stiff to bend your supporting arm up correctly, and with the padding removed it isnt much better with the jacket zipped it was very difficult to even get near a decent standing position for shooting.:D:D:D

    With my results in the GPs I could say that a gimp coat doesn't help with standers either ;)
