I am of the opinion that the best way to learn, is to get out there and have a go and with this in mind, I have got myself a FT rig. I have a Ar20FT and a big Nikko 10-50x60 mk111 (green turrets).
So apart from the scope and gun and a bean bag what else will I need to shoot FT and what sort of zero would you chaps recommend?

I'd also ask if your club has any BFTA Club Instructors/Coaches, if not, let me know and i'll see if i can find one for you... but most clubs have one at least.
Depends if you want to write the article from a point of view of a complete beginner coming in cold, or using the resources that could be on tap... but should make for an interesting article, and good feedback.
We could perhaps do one the other way around.
PM me if there's anything you need or are unsure about, we can natter on the phone if you like as well.
