SFT - Where are all the Sporting shooters?
At Gp1 there were just two entries in the SFT class. A quick look at confirmations for GPs 3 and 4 suggests there might not be many more at these. Last year there were half a dozen Sporting entries at most shoots, some also attracting a few HFT specialists.
So why are so few shooting SFT this year?
Could it be the rule changes re. additional reducers? Actually, I would have thought this makes the course more attractive, rather than less so. When shooting Sporting rules, a 20 yard mini kill has to be easier than trying to judge the range of a 50 yard full size kill, using just Mark One Eyeball and a fuzzy scope!
For me, It would be a real shame to see this discipline die when it offers so much satisfaction. Just think: shoot Sporting and you need never worry again about your scope parallax moving with temperature!
Any ideas guys?
