Not that many in the UK, but it's growing internationally.

If memory serves me right, I think back in 2003 when the FT World Championships were held in England there were something like just half a dozen springer shooters out of 300 entrants. In 2013 there were 60, and in that 60 was some seriously specialised and expensive kit! The first time I've ever seen 3000 worth of March scope on top of a humble HW97

There seemed to be quite a few out at the NEFTA Winter league on Sunday - it seemed like every lane I could see had a springer shooter on it. Not just shooting in FT Recoiling class, some were in SFT class too.

Good to see and I think it paints a picture to casual observers that you don't need to buy the latest and greatest converted 10m match PCP to go out and have fun shooting in a competition.
