If you look at the GP results I think you will find that A and AA are the bulk of the shooters.
I do agree that the 1 point 2 point system make's hft more attractive to new shooters,but all it does is give inflated results.
I think entry level expense also makes hft more affordable.
If you build a coarse with short,medium and long in mind then there is something for everyone.
I have lost count of how many time's I have heard , no one will clear that.
Skilful shooter,s do not want 50 yrd targets,30 ft up a tree on the edge of a field, they want targets they can use their skill to hit not see how lucky they are.
