    @17brno, half your club was down here yesterday, along with most of Gizzy

    They all got rained on, so I think you guys had the better deal...

    Yeah we were having a bit of a laugh about that on Saturday we didnt think they would have got much shooting done, we had rain around us but didnt get a drop which was good as it was a mission getting to the 500yrd mound due to the wet grass

    haven't seen them used for comps other than 300m.

    for club shoots we use them if it means shooting can continue...

    don't quote me, but i think ISSF allows cover if everyone has it (the regularly shoot indoors overseas), for ICFRA I think there is a no cover rule, will do some reading

    they only really work if it is not too windy

    Here's the rule Woody
    T6.4. A competitor must not shield himself or his rifle from the sun or weather while shooting, nor
    allow anyone else to do so, except as provided for in Rules T3.3, T3.7, T3.8, T3.10, T6.14 or
    T14.18. “While shooting” means “from the moment of presenting the rifle for his first
    (sighting) shot until after the discharge of his last shot to count excepting only periods when
    the target is unavailable by virtue of a (C)RO “ cease fire” or a target malfunction notified
    from the butts.”
    The other rules mentioned deal with raingear, hats, mirage bands, and other shooting accessories.

    Another rule worth taking note of comes directly above this one,
    T6.3. The butt plate of the rifle must be placed against the shoulder or upper arm and all parts of
    the rifle and sling and of the arms below the elbow, including clothing, must be visibly clear
    of the ground and of all other objects.
    It is not permitted to rest the rifle’s pistol grip (or
    magazine if permitted and fitted) on the ground, the inside of the elbow or upper arm, or on
    the sling.
    Look along the line at competitions and you will see some very suspect positions. Some would definitely be illegal.
