The current National and indeed International FT calendar has probably made this event a shoot too many for most , given it's timing at the back end of a busy season when many a motorway mile and now air mile have been undertaken
All that said and done, I would love to see a Scottish Team at the inters but I am not even sure as to whether the majority of Scottish FT shooters or SARPA know the event exists, in all the years I have been travelling to this event this years turnout of 6 ( I stand corrected if I've missed anyone ) is probably the best I have witnessed .
But this is where I get lost a little bit,
If this is the case why are SARPA trying to control the HFT Scottish team selection.
If you go on Airgun Scotland and read the posts you will see that they would like to change the team selection format.
With HFT in Scotland we have shooters that get together and make things happen.
Yet no one in SARPA will get together and make things happen in FT. WHY???????
I have asked the question on Airgun Scotland but had the post taken off.
