There has been lots of talk about Freestyle lately, but that will require another Division if you want to shoot for AAFTA GP points or shoot at the Nationals.
If you're looking for a new approach that can be fun and challenging, look at shooting "Limited". The good thing about shooting "Limited" is that we don't need a new Division/Class to do it at AAFTA GP or Nationals matches. In fact, if you limit your equipment enough, you can shoot in any AAFTA Division without having to change equipment or shooting style.
"Super-limited" has been something that I have been personally working up to. Ultimately, I want to shoot any AAFTA Division (even pistol) using one setup, That means I use only equipment that is legal in ALL AAFTA Divisions.
For shooting Super-limited rifle that means:
<=6" high seat
<=6" deep forend
<=12x scope setting
no butt hook
no stock adjustments
If you want to also conform to the pistol Divisions, then:
<=3" deep forend
no >12x scopes
I have been playing with a convertible pistol/carbine for a couple of years. From here on out, I'm going to keep that gun in pistol configuration and shoot most matches that way, including the rifle matches.
It's not necessarily a good approach if you want to win an AAFTA Division, but it is fun and challenging. Any other takers? I'll be at the the Arizona Nationals shooting in Hunter/Pistol and in Hunter/PCP using the same pistol for both.
