Seems like both of you have not experienced our terribly hot and humid summers, especially when we get 40 celcius heatwaves going on for a whole friggin week!

I tell you it's terrible! Try shooting in those conditions! From June till September it's almost impossible to shoot for more than an hour without dehydraiting and getting the feeling of just throwing the rifle back in the case and go back home under the A\C.

Thing is that the Worlds are usualy end of September or beginning of October which means very very limited time for practice

At least in South Africa last year I did not feel the heat as the other UK shooters did as I was used to it but lacked very much in practice!

In the UK you can shoot no problem almost all year round

Charlts, we should organize an FT/HFT foreign shooter exchange program for the summer
