    I understand the basics of what scope, mag etc but what about shooting positions. Do you have enforced positional shots or can all lanes be taken in any position. If enforced positions are applicable can these be taken from any position if the shooter is restricted physically, so not able to take the shot from that position.
    My example is that I'm unable to do kneeling shots. In HFT I have to take 'em standing (which is a disadvantage as this makes it more difficult), is it the same for SFT and FT.

    FT has specific rules that apply to disabled shooters and detail the alternative positions. I have to confess I haven't a clue what applies in SFT but there may be some info on the BFTA site

    SFT shoots the same positions as FT.

    You have designated kneeling and standing lanes, the rest are freestyle (if shot prone, it has to be unsupported)

    There are exceptions for those unable to shoot the designate positions for medical reasons. In kneeling there is now a semi sitting position without support which can be used.
