    Pegs are normally up to 1 yard back from firing line in this format with 2 pegs to 1 target

    CSFTA HFT rules.

    It's lost in the mists of time, but rumoured to be the original ones.

    With just two years of shooting hft and not shooting when the weather is shi..... erm not very nice I don't have a lot of experience, in my club (Kingsley) you shoot from the peg, the forward arm is allowed forward of the peg but nothing from the trigger back.
    Looking at the photos (very sharp Rob, what camera?) several shooters were forward of the peg, but now it is mentioned, I can see a thin blue line, well string and I guess that is the firing line.

    A series I currently shoot states "The competitor’s trigger finger must not cross the firing line." however I'm entering UKAHFT events this year and just checked their rules which does indeed state "The trigger finger must be behind the peg when the shot is taken."

    I am new to HFT so pleased this got mentioned. :)

    Yeah easy to fall fowl if you carry across the rules from one of the disciplines to another.

    As I understand it .... this league well out dates the uks.... masters etc , it’s just how it’s shot

    Most shots won’t just be shot off the peg ... you have to still touch the peg .... but sometimes you’ll need to be a few foot left or right of the peg to see the target... the trigger finger must not cross the line .... but you can be ahead of the peg.... again , that’s the format .... it’s a great format , just not to be versed against the bigger comps
