I got into HFT with a £175 AA S200 and a £200 MTC Connect SL scope a little over a year ago and still use the same setup.
Starting to get a few good results but enjoy every time out with a great bunch of guys all around the country.
This sport is sooooo addictive and my gun proves you don't need to spend a fortune on 'Top' gear to have a blast and knock over a wood full of tin chickens....
If you can't fix it with a big hammer, your hammer aint big enough....
