Response to Merging into OPEN would be more in line with AAFTA's mission statements .......

The logic doesn't work for me Lonnie because using sticks, a bucket, and/or a bipod in Open has nothing to do with diversity or innovation in Open. It's a false equivalency.

In Hunter division shooters often and already use the same guns and scopes you'd see in Open, they just can't turn up the scope mag and click. So to suggest that Hunter is a limited equipment division is not true and hasn't been true for some Hunter shooters.

Therefore when we talk about the purpose of the Hunter division there has to be a wink and a nod in that conversation because I think we all know that the ship sailed from the stated mission a few years ago.

That 12x requirement in Hunter is arbitrary. That arbitrary limitation in Hunter should not be used to justify changes in another division.

So don't be surprised when Open shooters kick and scream if the BOG changes the rules in Open, a popular and competitive division, if it's couched in the squishy language of those mission statements.
