As has been said, you can still shoot SFT but will not get a trophy for it, so there is no need to buy any more equipment....just shoot with what you have. Unless trophies are what you're after.
I intend to do the GPs next season in spring class (watch out boys) with a HW97 with a Leupold Comp on top, agreed the scope is worth more than the rifle but you buy what you can afford.
It doesn't mean because I have spent thousands on kit I must win something....on the contrary...I shoot because I enjoy it, want to do it and have a good crack with my mates.
Enjoy whatever you decide.
