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.
Before you rangefind in FT practice, have a look at the target and take a guess at the range, then rangefind as normal...you may be surprised how close you are.......or not!
Try to the yard..not 50ish, but 52! See how you get on......
