    There's a quite significant thread on here, posted recently, about BFTA kneelers.
    Do a search. Whatever is finally decided by BFTA will almost certainly be adopted by all of the regions - NEFTA included. :D

    Kneeling: There shall be only 3 points of contact with the ground (2 feet and 1 knee). The

    rear foot shall be upright and straight in line with the knee. A legal seat may be used to

    support the rear foot and/or ankle, or to keep the knee clean provided that the foot has

    contact with the ground. The leading hand will support the gun and, forward of the wrist

    should itself be unsupported (the wrist is deemed to be the hinged joint between hand and

    forearm).

    Surely I should be able to kneel with both knees on the ground, as with only one knee on the ground; it is a genuflection.

    With both knees on the ground you'll topple forwards, onto your face, into the mud.
    Then the trigger will be in front of the line
    You don't want that, do you?
    It's better that you genuflect, like the rest of us :D
