I just would like to comment on one point. Hunter class is not required to shoot from a bucket or stool. its perfectly alright in hunter to shoot from a bum bag or sitting on the ground.

Basically it needs to be a stock car race from the time the pellet leaves the barrel.


That is easy to imagine as that is what Open/Piston is supposed to be. Hardly anyone attempts that anymore. We had no Open/Piston shooters at the California State match this last weekend.
The lone WFTF/Piston shooter was consolidated with the WFTF/PCP shooters. Ballistic advantage or not, if I were in that situation, I would rather be consolidated with the other Hunter/Piston shooters.
