    Who says its more stable Cliffy ? When I shot FT I could hold it just as steady when sitting as I can prone

    If you wanna sit try FT:D

    that is the most pointless answer ever given, why is sitting banned in HFT if it is a safe position to take ?

    Believe me mate I've given better pointless answers than that in the past.

    Simple answer its not banned its just never been allowed and never will be as its a different sport to FT.

    Note the words "different sport" in sparky's pointless answer ;)
    Same as I cant rest my forearm on the ground in FT when prone, again different sport different rules.

    I think it's a bit like insisting you shoot with a rifle that doesn't fit you.:rolleyes:

    I don't like sitting, standing or kneeling but I can do rolling around on the floor.

    :D:D:D

    HFT would become equally boring as FT and just be FT2 if parking ya jacksie on a big comfy shooting saddle/cushion/armchair were allowed. NO POINT!!!

    Now if HFT ( and I understand the reasoning for the peg ) were to get rid of the peg!

    Its all in the word HFT as not many people i know stalk there quarry in a sitting position, its all about hunting in the field, am i not wrong.

    In FT we can use any position in a open peg, why not in HFT. Question to quarry hunters home of motorcross

    Difficult that one because most of the top HFT shooters are people that moved away from FT to a more skill related sport rather than kit reliant.

    I wasn't aware you could use a hft style prone position in FT ? Or did you just mean you can use any position as set down in the bfta rules ?

    As has previously been said different sports have different rules.....

    As far as im aware, You can shoot prone in FT but you can't lean or rest against a nice stable "PEG"...lol:eek:
