since my 2.5-16 Elite 6500 that replaced my old "couldn't be fixed" Elite 4200, plus the new 30mm BKL mount I bought for the scope wouldn't even leave me enough money to get a cheap Chicom undelever.
There could be a "field target hunter bunny trail class (FTHBTC fer short)" for beginners, shooters with Gamos and West Virginny shooters what only got carved forked sticks fer sights!
Anywhoo........Combine Open/Hunter class actually IS a very interesting proposal to me (separate recoiling from nonrecoiling). The guns and optics currently being used by some IS match grade with a few restrictions. Could combining Open/Hunter be any worse than the current hft class where recoiling and nonrecoiling shooters compete side by side?
