    That's good news. I'll be supporting rimfire this year in EFT, hopefully we'll get a good following.

    I can't remember, are slings allowed for offhand shooting or not?

    I'm not sure Steve. Sounds like really upping the ante though, on the difficulty factor. 

    I think I'll just use my rifle and take my licks on the offhand lanes as intended.

    .

    Guessing Ben won't have a problem with a sling though…..you thinking rocks? or cast round ball?

    Just kidding. I have no idea what the ruling on slings on the rifle will be. (Above my paygrade but maybe it'll come to a vote?.)
