Suggest renaming some of the classes to describe the actual equipment used

Response to Can Open and WFTF shooters understand the 12x Hunter problem?

Hunter class should be renamed to "sticks/seat/12x max scope only class".
Do not care about scope power. I prefer British hunter field target rules. 10x max scope. No clicking. No range finding. This rule keeps the cost of entry in the sport very low.

Open should be renamed to "bum bag/leg straps only class" since it is not truly "open".
I wish open was "unlimited" in equipment used.

To make the sport more accessible, I would create an "unlimited" class or make "Open" unlimited.
For beginners starting in the sport, I would let them use whatever equipment they have - including laser rangefinders and attached bipods - shooting prone. 20 FPE will be the only limit.
