    Hi guys,
    I’m new to the forum & after recently loosing my shooting permissions I’ve started getting into target shooting up at Doncaster Air Gun Range mainly to hone my technique before taking the plunge & having a go at FT or HFT.
    Anyway with a little encouragement from the guys at Donny I thought I’d jump in at the deep end and have a go at HFT, my first shoot was at Anston in the last round of some HFT comp. what a nice bunch of people and a thougherly enjoyable day.
    Following that I have had a go at Emly & met 1 or 2 guys who were again really welcoming.
    I would like the opportunity to have a go at FT next mainly so I can decide which discipline I prefer so I can comit to a rifle & scope & start practicing so like most newbies any advice will be welcome.
    Thanks in advance Steve.

    Welcome to the forum from another Steve from South Yorkshire!

    Brian & the DAR crowd are a very friendly bunch & I'm pleased you enjoyed your visit to see The Anston massive.

    Good idea to try both disciplines before splashing out too much dosh.

    Hi mate I’ve had plenty of offers to have a go with people’s kit at DAR but unfortunately I’m left handed which narrows my chances of try before you buy so any lefties out there shout up

    Hi Steve, it's 9 booking in for a 10 safety brief. It's going to be a good day as it's a combined cock ot North shoot (the decider as well) combined with a charity shoot for a mate of mine and former Emley member who was taken well before his time. The proceeds go to Wakefield hospice and there will be a very good raffle too. If you're stuck for a rifle then please drop me a PM as i've a spare Steyr set up with a HFT scope fitted and zeroed......you're more than welcome to borrow.:)

    Hi Chris
    Thanks for the offer I don’t suppose your steyr will suit a left hander it’s a bit of an affliction when your wanting to try people’s kit

    Hi Steve, Welcome to the forum from a fellow Newbie (from Nottingham). If you get to Emley on Sunday, can you look me up as I have been invited to have a nosy around.
