TCAF, I'm really glad that you had a good time. Unfortunately, if there is a lack of enforcement, one can expect a continuation of equipment rule violations and that eventually leads to a reduction in participation by true sportsmen. It is simple to address this issue - inspect all rifles prior to the match. That is currently done with vintage sniper rifles. That was done in response to numerous competitor complaints. Of course, it always helps to have easily interpreted rules to begin with. Rick
