Ah, I see!

Perhaps the rules could make allowances for such an eventuality.

Come to think of it perhaps a two handed grip could be allowed in the case of physical problems?

What do you think Phil?

Excellent feedback, and an interesting point.

Perhaps a revision could be:-

This can be anywhere between the muzzle and the front of the trigger guard, or the bottom of the grip. If the hand extends below the bottom on the grip, then the hand may contact the rest.

Kind regards,



Phil

"If the hand extends below the bottom of the grip" (as it does mine), "then the hand may contact the rest". Many thanks guys, that will solve my problem completely. :)

It sounds a fair solution, and still only makes one point of contact with the rest.

Kind regards,

Yes, I think so and ready for a December launch.

I would suggest adding something about the distance.

For standing, the shooters feet must of course be behind the line. As such, I'd suggest the shooters elbow must be behind the line.

We also need to decide 1 target sheet (10 shots) or 2.

I was thinking the round lasts a full calendar month to give everybody time to shoot.

Kind regards,



Phil

I've finished the rules,  quite simple really, and just need to tweak the target, then we can get going.

Hopefully, I'll get them uploaded tomorrow.

This will be in the competitions area though,  not here.

I am proposing a calendar month in which to shoot the comp.

To keep everything consistent, I am thinking 6 rounds per season.

Kind regards,



Phil
