Did the CSFTA circuit regularly and the GP circuit once.
in 2000 went to the first airgun BBS meeting at Lea Valley and to give some of the others soemthing to do as most didnt like the FT course I set up a Quick HFT course as CSFTA rules then with left hand and right hand only targets as well and long long range and Lots of obscured and difficult positional ones etc including a prone on pointy shale (was hot so lots of shorts and bear Knees )
a young (well younger then ) welshman seemed to enjoy it. and Lea Valley moved over to HFT
SuperMick was still alive then to one of the Good Guys

It was a short while later i stopped shooting due to other things (and hte second Foot and mouth outbreak ) and havent been back to try the New UKHFT system to see how it has evolved.



We still have the reducer plate Although its been some years since we went quite so extreme with target trickery...from what i remember that was one of our mid 90's shoots think we tried to make things a little harder after attending the ARC comp at little green school where they had 6mm diamond shaped kills, etc May well have to dig that reducer out for old times sake at our MVAC open later on in the year
