Darren and I were complete shooting novices when we bought an airgun last October, we , like you chose our discipline after a few weeks at a local club. Meeting new people, enjoying plinking.
We chose FT after meeting a group of FTers who are friendly and supportive.
For us, rangefinding (the lack of our skill and experience) made FT with the twiddling a natural choice.
We've been properly hooked now. Shooting usually twice a week. Just bought enough pellets to last us through to May!
As our experience grows, we find we are more often guessing some ranges correctly, I think in the future we will have a go at HFT. It's certainly more prolific than FT.
One thing is for sure, we've got a lot to learn and, won't be bored for years to come.
Air gunners are the ALL awesome too, not met a bad one yet. Freely offered advise, lending equipment, jokes and banter.
