No, not to all.
Highpower, F-class and benchrest shooting is much more expensive (but more boring than FT ) and those classes attract new shooters.
For shooters not willing or able to spend a lot there is the HFT springer class. Or smallbore sporter.
My argument posted above said: "They just want to shoot. They gladly pay for a shiny new expensive aluminum stocked airrifle but don't like to be strapped into an expensive straitjacket."
This is what I see and hear from new club members when I ask them.
