1st birthday open shoot under modified ukahft rules. Location Little Moor Lane, loughborough, leics nearest post code is le11 1rh. This is the first of a 6 shoot series where the scores are accumulated over the series the 4 highest scores to count there will be a trophy and a cash prize of £200 for each class. There will be a shoot starting on 3rd January, and then every other month there after, finishing in November giving the winner some extra cash just in time for Christmas 2016. Signing in from 9am and safety brief around 10-30am. Jo will be there with the burger van serving hot drinks and hot food.

The tweaks to ukhft rules are as follows,

The pegs that you hold onto at each lane are being replaced with a smaller diameter metal peg with a plastic sleeve on. Any one who has been down to us will have seen them on the practice range they are metal pegs with blue plastic water pipe over them.

The colour of the target kill zones are being painted a fluorescent colour either orange of pink so that people with cheaper scopes can still see the kill. the face plates will stay the same white or yellow.

There will be one standing and one kneeling only but there will be two targets that are standing or kneeling.

Everything else will stay the same target kill sizes and ranges etc.

The number of times I opened the breech and watched water flow down the transfer port was not funny, these 10m guns are not well suited to that amount of rain! And the rain showed that non of my water proof clothing is! But it doesn't matter, it is a 4 from 6 series so I can drop that score, hold on a minute, that meens I could have stayed at home, bugger!!
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!

VooDoo TwoTwo The next chapter.
