Well, regardless of the events, we need a venue to select our National Team, and they revolve around the Olympic events. At a minimum, we need someone to host these selection events.
Standard pistol, as Brian said, is regarded as a developmental or feeder event for rapid or sport. Centrefire doesn't fit in anywhere outside of the Military/CISM events. I love shooting the events, but they just aren't Olympic.
Now, I may get in trouble.
The SFC isn't focused on anything that is not directly related to podium performances. Development is not on their agenda. Neither is recreational shooting. NRA events aren't even considered.
This is not meant as a put down, or a slur. It is a reality. The SFC is focused on one thing: Olympic performances. Limited resources means limited focus. That is and has been their focus over the last decade. Its just becoming more apparent now. Its unfortunate.
