Default Shooting (Gimp) Jacket for HFT

What you can see is that actually quite the opposite of your Main argument for proposing a ban on Gimp jackets is happening.

FT has overtaken HFT in popularity and continues to grow, while UKAHFT is taking a nose dive.

Perhaps you should propose that since FT allows Gimp jackets and is overtaking HFT in popularity, UKAHFT should also allow Gimp jackets - that'll be a fun thread
Already tried it Brian

It's me that Greg was referring to, (post 71) I wore my green creedmoor, (which doesn't fit the description of a true 10 meter Gimp jacket), but was told later not to wear it again at a UKHFT event.

I now shoot HFT wearing just a long trench coat & underwear, but might not bother with the underwear this summer

The Devil will find work for idle hands to do.
