I have been at home with the flu and too much time to think about things. I was reading about rule differences in the HFT division.
AAFTA PCP and PISTON Division Shoot Rules
A. Any form of sighting system may be used.
B. No separate device designed specifically for, or used for range finding may be used to view the targets.
C. No laser device can be used.
AAFTA HUNTER Division Shoot Rules
A. Optical sights of any reticle style may be used, but are limited to a maximum of 12 power magnification. Variable scopes of greater max power than 12X must be turned to a 12X factory marking or the nearest lower factory marking on the scope.
B. No turret adjustment allowed during the match. (No clicking.)
C. Optical sights with parallax adjustment (adjustable objective, or sidewheel focus), may be adjusted so that the target is in focus. Range (yardage) markings may be used.
D. No separate range finding device may be used
Does that mean that laser sights can be used in the HFT division? Something like these:
I don't know how effective they are during daylight, but my thought was to use them at a different elevation than the scope in order to have another aim point at a closer or more distant point along the trajectory. It would give some confirmation that my holdover was correct. Any thoughts?
