    It wasn't my intention to hurry you up - I just found this the most informative, as well as the most mouth-watering, introduction to HFT I've read so far.

    When I was looking for an alternative to 10m Olympic (which I found utterly boring) in the late nineties, FT was the only thing I came across. Since in this country, we didn't have anything like it, or any history, we basically started out where the English started out in the '80's... a mix of springers and PCP's, most with modest scopes. With my Swift 6-24x50 scope w/ AO, I was among the more advanced (we had only one guy shooting a Premier'ed Leup, but he was constantly struggling with it).

    Before we knew it, we were sucked into the arms race as well.

    I like the almost thought- (and worry-) free, Zen-like precision element of FT (and I will actually shoot my first match in something like 10 years next weekend), but after reading your article, I really want to try my hand at HFT as well - you make it sound like it's not just eyeballing and lots of practice (which I like) but also cunning, which I like as well. To me, you make it sound like fun.
