    Hi all

    How many of you have shot HFT with the better half .... more than once ? lol :D

    My mrs said she will not go shooting with me ( possibly as she is banging the betterware bloke whilst I am out )

    - I keep telling her that she would really like it as all the blokes shooting are ' well fit ' , drive sports cars and are regular back , sack and crack wannabees infact I know of atleast one hft'er ( Big Chris ) who has a Brazillian airstrip ( it's actually the same size as a real runway though ) I'm sure he won't mind me mentioning it . :eek:

    Anyway jokes aside , I would like my mrs to come out and atleast try hft and if she didn't like it she could always clean my gun for me .............................. in the dishwasher ! :rolleyes:

    My Mrs shoots regular HFT and a hell of a lot better than I do. :D
    Think I've only beaten her at HFT once and that cost me big time so not going to do that again.
    Although at least she cleans the guns afterwards and if i remember correctly she shot round with Chris at the last UK round at MAD.

    I know I was shooting downwind in the next lane and was starting to feel a little tipsy.

    Here's to the next one in a couple of weeks :D

    I'm keeping quiet on comments about other peoples better halves for fear of incrimination. :eek:
    But I'm sure Laity will comment enough for everyone :D

    Atleast if Louise and Janine beat us in the matchplay I'll have someone to have a beer with :D

    My missus beat me once 2 years ago and I still haven't heard the end of it!:D Andrea only shoots now days if its a fun shoot, not raining and at least 10 degrees! Otherwise she whinges!:D:D

    Although her knowing what guns and stuff cost has it's downside, it does mean she's careful around them and understands why I need so many. Which has helped where my mother's concerned!;):D

    My wife does dog agility and most weekends we are at opposite sides of the country, with this in mind we are going to do at least 2 weekends per year trying the others sport. So if anyone has a cheap beech S400 stock let me know.

    My wife don't want to even entertain it, she gets in a huff if I say im shooting at the weekend. "If your shooting then I'm shopping" usually she wins the arguments so I don't even say anything now. I plus is she still thinks I'm shooting the same rifle I had 10 months ago, oh how little she knows:D

    Me and Mike are the same... we can't shoot together !!! I do enjoy sharing the same hobby tho... we do spend alot more time at weekends together because of it... and we always try to help each other out... (Mike helping me more as he's cleverer at the technical stuff!!)

    It's becoming really good fun going away for the UK's and stuff as there seems to be a group of girls now as well which is nice.

    Mike brought me my first gun at the first sign of interest.... try it, it might work !!!

    Buy her a gun :eek: then who who do the house work :D

    Seriously I would like my better half to come and try HFT but probably not for every shoot - I know that sounds selfish but it's my only hobby ......... that makes me sound really nasty doesn't it ? :eek:

    Perhaps we should merge salsa with HFT ' hunter field salsa ' :p

    I talked Rik into going shooting in the first place! I got him his first Co2 pistol way back before we discovered the delights of rifles, and it is great to have someone to beat every week......sorry shoot with every week.

    It really is fun shooting with hubby although we tend to only shoot club stuff together, its nice to shoot round with other people and meet new faces, and we would probably kill each other given time!

    Also he drives everywhere so I get to sleep in the car! And he bakes a mean chocolate cake:D
