    Come along.

    Hi Colin,

    Yes, just usual HFT equipment, plus a head torch which makes things easier when moving around the course and loading your gun, plus everyone wears a high vis jacket (if you don't have one we can sort you one out) and if you have a gun lamp that's even better, or we will put you with someone who has one who can illuminate the target for you.
    So as long as your a safe shooter, with a sub 12ft/lbs air gun in any calibre, and you want to get cold, wet and frustrated at shooting HFT in the dark come along.
    The comps are every 2 weeks through the winter, on a Wednesday, starting at 7pm so get there by about 6:30 to book in and get sorted.
    Next one is next Wednesday.

    See you there..:)

    Alex

    Hi,

    Exactly the same rules as HFT but in the dark, and we shoot 20 targets instead of 30.
    3 targets are usually illuminated by a torch at the target and you cant use your gun lamp on those to make things more.....interesting ;)

    Tug that should be fine as long as the torch shines on the target and not a foot to the right or left.
    Your wife's big butt will need to be covered by a XXL high visibility vest though. :D
