Possibly the format is wrong. Why should being in the top four at a league shoot where you have two minutes (and in SWEFTA's case all the time in the world) for two targets, befit you for a place where you need to down two in less than a minute?
Myself I would rather shoot in the showdown,alas the North West is not the strongest region for Ft,so I'm hoping by joining the Bfta(Rivington Riflemen)and hosting some Ft shoots we can tempt some of the(very good) hft shooters to give it a try
We have at Rivi in the region of 150 members,10% of those would make a difference to our region.
