Is this the norm at hft meets or am I just looking at all the wrong photos..... im looking forward to testing myself in my first competition, with my new daystate air ranger, and I dont mean to suggest that people with what I consider dedicated field target rifles should not do hft comps. It just seems a bit like racing a rally car against an f1 car...

I just think that the hunter in hft is as important as the field target. I would like to know your opinions on this.
Anyway, happy shooting!
Don't worry about the rifles mate I just sold my air ranger which was being used for FT, it is more than ample at taking on the Steyr's or EV2's. In its last FT outing it was only beaten by Jack and Doz :-) the Current and a Past European champion so it is more than capable.

They are fantastically accurate and consistent rifles..... give Sovereigns a go in it found them the best.
