    As far as the Americans are concerned it is very much on. There are a lot of discussions going on about the differences between American FT and the rest of the world. If you go to the AAFTA web site and follow the link to Delphi forum, you'll see what I mean.

    I am afraid SA gets thrown into the Euro FT pot, as a country which shoots at 12fpe.

    Due to the harnesses, shooting jackets, and stabilisers, the more difficult courses out there seem to use small kills at long distances (25mm at 55yards) but they then say that they shoot in almost windless conditions. They certainly found the combination of terrain, wind and 12fpe very hard in Poland.

    Currently, they are trying to sort out what is best. A large domestic turnout, with a few foreigners OR a decent domestic turnout and good participation from the rest of the world. I have no idea which side the AAFTA will choose, but I think 20fpe rifles will be in there.

    Airguns:
    A. Any safe airgun of any configuration, shooting a single pellet.
    B. Any airgun declared unsafe to people and/or property (including targets) by the match director will be barred from use.
    C. The use of more than one airgun is not permitted during a course of fire, except in the event of malfunctioning equipment.

    Sights:
    A. Any form of sighting system may be used.
    B. No Separate device designed specifically for or used for range finding may be used to view the targets.

    Ammunition:
    A. Any design of pellet that is completely constructed of lead or lead alloy only.

    Targets:
    A. Silhouette "fall-when-hit" targets resettable from the firing point will be used. Silhouettes may be of typical airgun quarry, or targets appropriate to shooting sports.
    B. Targets should not be closer than 10 yards, nor further than 55 yards from the firing point.
    C. The match director should assure that shooting lanes and physical limits of the firing points are clearly defined.
    D. A clear and unobstructed view of the hit zone must be afforded from at least one shooting position.
    E. Shooters may reset their own targets once they are given permission from the scorer.

    Scoring:
    A. Scoring shall be on the basis of one point for each "hit" and a zero for each miss.
    B. A hit will be awarded when the target falls, any movement of the kill zone paddle which does not result in the target face plate falling will be recorded as a miss.
    C. When a gun is shouldered, any discharge of air down the barrel and/or disengagement of the sears shall be recorded as a miss if the target does not fall. A shooter may announce their intention to discharge the gun into the ground without penalty of a miss .

    Shooting Position:
    A. Any shooting position is allowed, but the range may be set up to necessitate use of a forced position on some targets. A sign declaring a forced shooting position, may be used at a shooting lane.
    B. Rifle slings may be used.
    C. No form of support from the ground for the airgun and/or body may be used (e.g., bipod, benchrest, chair, tree stump, etc.).
    D. A seat/prone mat used solely as a seat/mat may be used (see Rule 7).
    E. The airgun must be supported by the shooter's hand(s) and body.

    Seating:
    A. The maximum height for any form of seat is 6 inches, measured with the shooter sitting on the seat.
    B. The six inches is measured from the ground to the highest point of the seat.
    C. The seat can only be used as a seat and not any other means of shooting support.
    *Note: Variations of Rules 6 & 7 may be applied at the discretion of the match director in recognition of shooters desires, while ensuring that no unfair advantage is accrued. In the event an advantage is obtained, those shooters shall compete in a separate class for awards.

    Disputed Scores:
    A). Any challenge must be made to the marshal prior to leaving the target.
    B). Any dispute not resolved at that time will be referred to the match director, whose decision will be final.

    Penalties:
    The penalty for deliberate infraction of Shoot Rules, unsafe practice, ungentlemanly con-duct, or any form of cheating is disqualification.

    Target Sequence:
    A. The match director shall designate a sequence for shooting targets, by number, left-to-right, nearest-to-farthest etc.
    B. The timer can be started by a squad member or the shooter, and can be placed so the shooter can monitor his or her own time. Timers are to be started when the shooter 1) sits down for a sitting shot, 2) shoulders the rifle for the first time for a kneeling/standing shot, or 3) lays down for a prone shot.
    C. If the wrong target was knocked over, it shall be reset and then shooting shall resume on the correct target in sequence.

    Time per Shot:
    A. The Match Director and/or Marshal may impose a time limit per lane or per target before or during the match. Match Directors should note the use and limits of timers in the match announcement, if possible. Timers should be of the countdown type with an audible alarm when times runs out. Typical time allowed is one (1) minute per shot with one (1) minute set-up time per lane, ex. Four (4) shots on a lane equals five (5) minutes of time for that lane.
    B. The timer can be started by a squad member or the shooter, and can be placed so the shooter can monitor his or her own time. Timers are to be started when the shooter 1) sits down for a sitting shot, 2) shoulders the rifle for the first time for a kneeling/standing shot, or 3) lays down for a prone shot.
    C. If a "cold" line/cease-fire is called while a timer is active, stop the timer and add an additional 15 seconds to the time remaining and restart the timer when "hot" line/resume-fire is called.
    D. Any shots taken after the alarm sounds will be counted as a miss. In case of a tie with the alarm, and the squad members agree on the tie, then the shot is given to the shooter. A marshal or the match director will handle any disputes.

    Tied Scores:
    In the event of two (2) or more shooters tying for an award, a shoot-off, or other tie-breaking system will take place.

    Match Director:
    In any matters arising and not covered by these rules, the match director's decision will be final.
