Got to be a good thing as it has brought a lot of shooters into FT and HFT, and a lot shoot both.
The 2 disciplines used to run as one and it just seems that commercialism has somehow guided the 2 disciplines in different directions. Range-finders -why?
Club shoots at Stourvale Woodsmen back in early 90;s had 140 + members - average club Sunday shoot - 40 shooters.
MFTA charity shoot at Arley back in 1988 we had literally hundreds of shooters there as we ran an Airgunner Grand Prix leg and an Airgun World Showdown shoot at the same time the winner was Pete Snatchfold. 580 entrants that day.
The only down side to that day was Dave Hammill with his floppy hat in his flowery shorts asking for butter on his bacon sandwich.
In case anyone thinks this is sour grapes it is not. I cannot see why we are pricing the new shooters out of the sport at the very beginning. 15mm kills doesn't encourage anybody to spend loads of money to get a gun for the son or daughter for them to get no-where and then dis-illusioned they leave not to return. Good marketing that Eh!
Sorry rant over
Oh and setting the gun and scope up for both FT and HFT is easier than you think[/QUOTE]
I dont think the butt hook will be any good for HFT or FT for that fact as it may well interfere with the chip thats on you shoulder.
All the best.
