Congratulations for the French shooters .....and for the rest of foreigner shooters too!.
It's a big surprise indeed!.
It would be good TO KNOW WHAT HAS BEEN THE PROCESS to obtain the law change!!!. Is it possible?. Is there someone who can be "diving" in the administration to reach this information?.
This is a precious reference to be used in other countries.
Regards.

Perhaps the U.K. can now go to 20 joules and remove the "capable" bit in the interests of European harmony.

20 joules: 14.75ft-lbs, or 887fps for 8.44. Likey!

What does 10% faster mean in terms of flatter trajectory/wind deflection?

Hello ,

the new legal limit of 20 joules is a legal limit nothing else.

We will continue to practice FT with 16 joules airguns.
We started in respecting FT (copying) the English rules and we will continue on this way

it is difficult for us to set forth this discipline with french shooters. the way that will lead to the recognition of our sport is still long and bumpy.

Thisis only 3 years that we have created the first FT friends meeting who lead to the creation of the AFFT. We are still full of ignorance and we lack a lot of experience.
the future is ahead of us and we hope that this new law will help us to have more members.

Thank you for your enthusiasm and support, the world of FT grows but remains small enough for everyone knows everybody and supports ( help) all other shooters ( assiciations) in the world.

Play FT and have good time

Robert

Now the power limit for the non fac air rifle is 20 joules max. This means that the sale of airguns under 20 j is obsolutly free.

This is a very good news for FT / hft shooters who before this law were to enroll in a French Shooting club and must wait six months before to have the rigth to buy and holding an airifle .


Now we are free from this constraint that costed at least 100 euros per year with the obligation to regurarly practice in a government-approved shooting club.

as someone said before me :today i have a dream "Free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last"

Today the French FT makes a great step

Robert great news, no more transfer port swap for traveling.

Now the most beautiful FT course, Millau will have the number of shooters it deserves.
