As a small addendum I need to stress out that we ar not forced by governement ruling to start using non-toxic pellets. Our Dutch Field Target Assosiation club, who organise the Dutch national championship, has decided on their own that starting 2011 we need to use ony non-toxic pellets.
Other events, at club level, are not impacted so we can keep using lead pellets.
This has given a lot of discussion over here, as the non-toxic pellets which are currently available are by far not equivalent to lead pellets.
For me personnaly I decided to give up FT1 class and start HFT for the non-toxic champioship events, and only shoot FT with lead. Just because with non-toxic, distances up to 35meters seem to be good enough and HFT goes upo to 42 meters, where FT goes up to 50meters.
What the future will bring, nobody can tell....
Steyr LG110 FT
Now only learn how to shoot....
