Er ... I didn't really say that.
I don't think there are any HFT shooters in the thread discussing HFT rules ( OP is fairly new and shoots both ). So I think HFT will consider itself fine.
I gave an example in response to Rich's comment re insurance and being sued.
Do you think that over the last 15 years of HFT no FT shooter has had any influence on the rules of HFT?
FT shooters and ex FT shooters have won the HFT Nationals and Worlds on numerous occasions. One of them is one of a two man team who run UKAHFT and make the rules and he's the 2015 National Champ. I think it's safe to say that FT, in some way, will have had an influence on HFT.
