Grass roots thinks ,HFT, its all about the gear.and the right contacts. As i said impressions.
I am the chap who took the picture on the front cover and I wrote the article on the Platinum,
This is why we did it like we did.
Roger lives 5 minutes from my house and as such I use him, as well as some other local shooters for my articles. Rogers gun was number 007, So I thought it would be a bit of fun to dress him up like James Bond and get him to Stand next to an Aston Martin. I hope you will agree, it does make a good cover.
However, if you look at my other article on improve your shooting, you will see that i shoot a second hand Daystate Mk3 worth about £400 and a Hawke 10x42 worth about £180. This is hardly top end kit.
I drive all over the country shooting in the UKAHFT and I really enjoy it, I am a shooter first, then a photographer and then a writer, So come along to a UKAHFT event, come and find me and I will put your picture with your rifle in the magazine
all the best
