Some interesting replies so far.
I had not considered the lack of Ft clubs to be a problem, but it seems it is for some?
Not being able to afford two guns is a reason that is understandable too perhaps?
I would say for around £6-700 a very good ft gun (ie pro target) and scope can be had (lup 18 40) but that is perhaps too much for a second gun, if your main gun is for hft?
I know alot of top end guns (£1000+) are showing up at Hft and scopes can be £500 + ?? But I presume the sub £500 (Mpr / S400 - AA user as you might guess
) and cheaper scopes are just as capable for Hft?
I must admit i was expecting lots of non ft shooters to say the "Long range" (45-55 yard targets) of ft was off putting, as certainly at some Gp there are alot of these and many "club" shooters struggle if they do attempt a Gp ? This brings up another question?
Keep em coming
