I shoot HFT down south in Hampshire with a .22 (so our shooting paths are unlikely to cross!), but like yourself, I am just beginning to spread my shooting wings in the world of air rifle competition - and am loving it ))
So very good to see how the more experienced chaps readily give their advice and encouragement to us newbies - which can only be good for the sport, which is a true hallmark of being a part of something so very worthwhile
Thanks Fastnick and totally agree with you, everyone I speak to is uber friendly and with me being a newbie I've never been fobbed off when the questions start!
My new friends even seem as pleased as me with my latest score/improvement which is nice! My shooting partner today, Mark, a guy I've never met, furnished me with a wealth of advice and suggestions which proved an instant success so I'm forever grateful to him for that.
I hope your game comes on as your experience grows and wish you well.
