    Default Rules for 2019

    I am busy reorganising the Faraway Fields Range and would like to know how the 2019 rules differ from those 2018 rules already posted.
    I know that we don't have supported positionals anymore, but what else is new?
    (either post new rules or just drop me a line, Thanks!)

    In view of recent experiences at league shoots I thought it was time to rearrange some of my targets. I need to stretch the distance here and there and reduce the HZ there and here.

    Please feel free to come and test your self on this range, it is only an hour and a half drive from the northern suburbs of Cape Town.
    How about coming up for a shoot in April?

    Please will someone remind me why we are not doing supported standing and kneeling shots (they still seem to be in the Brit and International rules).

    Thanks

    We shoot the WHFTO rules in South Africa. https://www.whfto.com/index.php/whft...onal-hft-rules

    The course builders for the WHFTO have decided to not use supported positional shots, as providing fair supports is not an easy thing. This has been the case for the last 2 years.

    Removing it from the WHFTO rules is currently under review and will most probably happen this year.

    Ok got it!
    I was confused as they still have all the details on the WHFTO website.

    In my opinion, it is a shame to remove the supported positionals , traditional HFT is the poorer for it.
    As to the logic of fair or unfair support, I really do not understand that at all. Surely a support is a fixed thing, how one uses it is the variable and that comes with the shooters experience.

    Oh well, as my old man used to say "they've improved it worse!"
