. you will need to get a walking boot with a really stiff sole so that you can sit on it without bending the boot . no more trainers in the summer ??? HOLLY
I'm in agreement with you Holly, being somewhat larger build than most.
Although I've not shot FT for a good few years, wallowing around in the mud on a HFT is fast losing it's appeal and a return to FT is a possible. I really believe that we all too often put rules in place and lose sight of what attracted people to the sport in the first place.
