» Cambridge HFT 26/06/2016
Jun 26, 2016 - 3:16 PM - by Dr_C
This weekend marked the end of an era; the last course set by Messrs Westley and Slane to Cambridge rules. After this nothing will be the same again. No longer will the woods echo to the cries of “how far away is that?” and “my pellet won’t even fit through a hole that small.” and the ever popular: “it’s on the end of the string, at the top of that tree, in between all the branches, you’ll have to time it carefully.”
I’m sure I speak for everyone in thanking them for challenging us and making us work just that bit harder. I know the satisfaction derived from getting one of those targets down.
Next shoot 10Th July to UKHFT rules.

» HFT Masterclass Series
Jun 25, 2016 - 8:37 PM - by Toucan59
Due to the success of the first 3 Masterclasses, we at HFT Masters have decided to add a further 3 Masterclass days at Petes Airgun Farm in Essex.
To be held on the last Saturday of July August and September
These are being sponsored by The Airgun Centre and Gunmart.
The days will be aimed at people who don't necessarily shoot competitively, but would like to know a bit more
about the great sport of HFT, maybe seeing what it is all about before buying their first rifle or the many plinkers who would want to pop along and see how to get the best out of their equipment to improve their enjoyment.
We will have several experienced shooters at these events who have experience of all types of shooting disciplines, to share their knowledge, and Simon Vant for the technical talks.
There will be several different rifles available to try, including springers.
It does not matter what... [Read More]
