I love HFT and will always compete but it's also nice to have a change from the norm, shooting both has taught me a lot and I hope more target shooters will compete in next years series!
I was going to shoot last year in the Target class, but i was told that even though i had to pay full price, none of my scores would count towards the championship as I was a target shooter.
If they don't want me, I wont shoot.
UKSARC KEY ELEMENTS
At UKSARC, we've never joined the 'arms race' of using incredibly expensive rifles and scopes - we prefer guns to look like guns. As a consequence, the main class in the UK Sporting Air Rifle Challenge will be for traditional sporter style guns, as opposed to target rifles. There will be a place for our friends who shoot such guns, but they will have their own class and will not qualify for championship points.
Aimed at hunting rifles & scopes
Realistic sized kill zones
Extra classes for .22 and recoiling
