In this game (Field Target) Many have said that the game is typically won or lost on the positional lanes. The Open and WFTF classes can use shooting jackets. These benefit their standing and kneeling shots significantly. Maybe not every shooter that wears them but the ones that want to be in the top group of shooters will put the time in to be successful when wearing them. If the hunter class were allowed to use high power scopes they would still be much more disadvantaged just by the fore mentioned classes optional equipment they are allowed to use. Rarely does a Hunter shooter ever come in with the highest score and that is how the game was designed. Remember, The Hunter class was started to be a feeder class for the Open class. The bucket and bipods attracted many of the older shooters that just can't get up and down like many of the Open and WFTF have to. So saying "If you don't like Hunter class than change classes" isn't a option for that many Hunter class members. At this point in my life I've been beaten down enough over some these issues by special interests that I don't care anymore. I'm resolved to comply with the rules our Bog allows us to use and keep my blood pressure down. It is nice to adlib once in a while though!
Scott signs would benefit everyone and from one that's be known to shoot the wrong target on occasion I like the idea.
