Sheesh ... I've read that about 4 times and I still don't get it ... so yup ... can of worms.
I'm never going to be a great shooter. In competition with the likes of Kieren, Dutto, Sparky, Rammy, Chris C, Ross H etc etc I'd always come behind their scores no matter what the rules or kit etc. I shoot in springer for no other reason than I just enjoy shooting my springer. I get far more satisfaction shooting them in HFT format than I do my pcp's. I'd get better scores with my PCP's ... no doubt.
It's just nice to be able to judge one's self against people who are also shooting springers and be able to see the tabulated results with just those shooters.
That said ... I've so far shot 2 UKAHFT courses and a 2 day World event. So I have no right to have any say ... just voicing my humble oppyonion. So I'll go with whatever the guv'nors decide.
