    Default Rifle sling for kneeling and standing shots in Field Target

    Can you use a sling attached to the rifle as an aide when shooting off the knee or standing with FT?

    Used to be ok and I think it still is, but rules do change from time to time so best is to read the current SAFTAA rules available for download on the SAFTAA website.
