Default Ruling question - Shooting Coats (Short sleeve?)

As I read the latest rules, the restrictions on shooting coats only include stiffening material. Is there any issue with cutting (1) sleeve to a short sleeve length?

I would recommend directing your question to our Competitions staff - competitions@thecmp.org and they will be able to answer your Rules question.
Thanks,
Christine

The answer was affirmative. Cut away. So in case anyone was wondering, I am not running around in a shooting coat wife beater. I cut the right sleeve just above my elbow. The only thing I really "removed" that was built into it was the elbow pad on the right side. Not a great loss in my opinion, but the coat is much cooler.

I'd feel lopsided. Like walking around with one shoe on and one shoe off. I'd probably fall over forward in standing being so off balance.
