from the game from which it were stemmed...... rifle field target, or designed completely different by lumping the 2 classes together. this would mean that both hunter type and open type shooting will be competing against each other as one class.

the main question i pose here today is ------ should Hunter class Pft rules be along the lines as Hunter rifle FT? and therefore, have sepperate classes like rifle ft classes.

the three basic pricipals to Hunter class is shooting from a bucket and using quick sticks and 12 power magnification. at Easton Field Target, shooters seems to really like using the same equipment for pistol hunter class as they do in Hunter rifle.

then for pcp/open Pistol Field Target----- should it be along the lines of rifle F/T?
and that is------ shooting from a bum bag and the self supported type shooting style where no limitations on how a shooter lines up for his/her shot??

both classes would for argument sake, be at the 12 fpe limit.

just curious on how shooters here on this fine forum think....... rules are being discussed and speak now or for ever hold your piece. lol wink.gif
