: They need to attract a wider base of shooters, not limit it. As of 2008, there is no national team for Standard Pistol, Centre Fire or Prone Rifle for women. While not Olympic events, these events are shot at the Commonwealth Games, CAT Games, and World Championships. My fear is that moves of this nature alienate shooters who compete in those events.
Agreed. Those are all feeder events, which develop shooters for Olympic programs. If nothing else, their membership would strengthen the federation financially (straight fees) and numerically, which in turn would generate more financial support from the Feds.
More people equate to a stronger sport. To bad they don't seem to get that.
