Response to Let's have a discussion about AAFTA Divisions/Classes!
that it's easy to step into that "starter class" if the club also shoots pistol. The pistol course is where entry level equipment and shooters play.
The Basic Break Barrel class on a PCP pistol course... works really well for new and old shooters, shooting on the same course with similar equipment. You need the mix of skill sets to keep the "camradire" in the game... which I agree is the main reason for most of us.
All piston shooters should be in one class... there is just not enough of them to have so many classes. AND, there is really no advantage to aids with a piston gun... higher power is harder to shoot straight.. shooting off your arm or knee with a low power gun is the most accurate way to shoot a piston gun... right? so... one class for piston... Freestyle.
and I'm really fine with that in PCP too.. but I don't care much if that doesn't happen... enough folks shoot PCP that we have plenty for all the PCP classes. In that way I would vote to allow freestyle into open or hunter.
