"I still don't understand why you can't use a scope turned down to 12x but the rules say it can't be capable of greater than 12x"

Having served on the committee that composed a set of proposed PFT rules for the BoG's consideration when AAFTA decided to (sorta) embrace PFT, I can shed some light on that question, KP. I being the most vocal proponent on the PFT rules committee for keeping some semblance of pistol in pistol field target, but more 'liberal' elements advocating no limits to barrel length or scope magnification, both the maximum barrel-length and maximum scope magnification rules we now have were compromises between virtually-warring elements on the committee.

Here is some idea of what you might have to use in "pistol" field target to be competitive at the highest levels if I hadn't fought SO tenaciously to keep some semblance of pistol in pistol field target.
