But we don't have that many lasses in FT X
Yes but you do have a grading system in FT...I started off in FT and this is the point I'm trying to make....It didn't put me off shooting because I was a lady...It was the fact my scores were low...when I found out the classes were graded so we was competing against others of similar level...It was a real confidence boost...when I found out the Grand Prix C grade title was to be taken it spurred me on....to do just that and I progressed to A Grade before it became too painful to keep shooting sitting and changed to HFT what I'm saying is a little encouragement at the start I believe keeps people in the sport....If it hadn't of been the fact I felt comfortable with all the c graders I probably wouldn't be shooting now!
