Of four FT clubs in the midlands within 25ml of my house none has more than 15 serious FT or HFT shooters on club shoots. My local 10m club has 20 firing lines and about 30 people queuing to get a shoot. These 10m guys shoot two nights a week compared to weekly or fortnightly for FT/HFT clubs. There are 3 similar clubs within 20ml of my house. I would say that 10m is a far more active competitive air gun sport than FT or HFT.

Midlands Benchrest comps shot at 20yd have about 20 teams of 4 entering each fortnightly round. this means 80 serious shooters compete each round. This is more than the 70 that attend MFTA winter league rounds held every 2 weeks. Based on this Benchrest is more popular than FT.
Make every shot count
