Response to WOW! WE NEED THE OPEN SHOOTERS TO COMMENT HERE!

Paul,

I get most of what you have said, and agree....to the most part. In my opinion, and this is my opinion, because none of this affects me, is Hunter class should be left alone, and not merged with Unlimited. If you did that, you actually would be making a new class, in effect. I would leave both divisions separate, and if changes in the rules of each respective class need to be changed or tweaked, they can do so. What NEEDS to happen is simple....take a poll of all the Hunter division guys, that have shot at least 1 Grand Prix match in the course of a year. Have them all vote on some of the issues that have come up on the forum. Simple. If the masses want it, let them. If they don't, then it stays the way it is. I say people that have shot Grand Prix matches, because the average guy on the club level, that only goes to a couple of matches a year, and really does not want to "compete ", don't care. Whatever the rules are, they are, and they go with it. It only seems that the veteran shooters are the ones that want this change, and there is nothing wrong with that.
As purely a WFTF PCP competitor, I would have NO desire to try to change any WFTF rules, here in the USA. Simply because it's NOT our place to change them.
The international WFTF class was implemented in the 80's in the UK, because they can only shoot 12 ft lbs. legally, just as many other countries in Europe. They made the rules.
I stay in this class, hoping my skill level will grow, so, that one day, I might be worthy to one day be a team member on the US team, in the WFTF division. Open class is not even officially offered at the World Championships. You wanna shoot the World Championships, you better learn to shoot 12 ft. lbs. There is no Open class at the World Championships. Period.
Just my take on things.
