Default Bitten by the HFT bug....big time.

Hello and thanks for the add.

Live in Staffordshire Moorlands and introduced to HFT by my brother-in-law about four months its all his fault, at least that's what I tell the Mrs, or as I call her: "The Evil One".

Ex forces and former clay shooter but out of the shooting scene for over twenty years.
I should have done this years ago.

Started with the Air Arms S400F and a hugely overpowered (for HFT) Falcon 4.5-25x56, which seemed to weigh more than the rifle!

Lesson learned and moved onto the HFT 500 with a Viper Connect 3-12x32 (which I know is a "Marmite" scope but I am very impressed so far. It got me a seventh at Kingsley a couple of weeks ago, so I'm happy).

Now sold the S400F and Falcon scope and just bought a TX200 full length, with MTC Mamba Lite 3-12x44 so I can try the boinger classes too.

Now looking for a custom stock for the TX.....but don't tell the Evil One.
