I also remember shooting a full HFT course at the OLD Buckley Wood ground back in 2000, so as far as SWEFTA is concerned the two disciplines have run alongside one another for quite a while now... and long may it continue.

As an aside, I shot the BW HFT course with a little break barrel 'ratting' Webley I had at the time... WRONG. The pukka shots were all using Pro-T's and the like with 6, 8 or 10 mag fixed scopes.
It sounds like its evolved in no time at all, most HFT are top end PCP FT guns now.
