I'm relatively new to HFT, starting with the Emley NEFTA Hunter this year. In Feb, I traded up to a Daystate Mark 3 in .177, and joined a club. What a difference a change in calibre and having somewhere to shoot regularly has made. Really enjoying my shooting now and enjoying learning more about it as I go too.
I think I'm steadily improving as I go but I'm finding the banter unmissable amongst some great new friends.
Learning all the time though.
