    Hi people, quick note to say hello from Kettering. Dying to get into HFT. Only been shooting a few times at Kibworth on the ranges though. If theres something on at Kibworth this weekend, I'm hoping to make it for my first go. All the gear, no idea!

    Hi,
    Welcome to the forum, there are quite a few local comps. to you. Kibworth, Misfits and Loughborough to name a few. ALL are very welcoming and helpful. You just missed a great competition on Sunday with misfits. There are 2 good ones this weekend one on Saturday at Kibworth and one at Loughborough on the Sunday. We'll be at Loughborough, hope to see you there.

    Yeah, I noticed I'd just missed out there. I think it's a marksman on the Saturday at Kibworth, I'm not sure if I can shoot there to be honest. Might come to the Loughborough one on Sunday though.:)

    Why drive all the way to Kibworth or Loughborough when u are only twelve minutes away from one of the best and most challenging air rifle grounds at Sywell Sundays from 9.30 caters for both Hft and field target friendly bunch with some very knowledgable shooters.

    Is sywell open on Saturdays? I've been there once and hft shooters don't seem to be welcomed.

    Open Sunday mornings from 9. We set out a 40 target course and you can shoot whatever position you want .we run a winter hunt competition which is hft style but most of us do the whole course kneeling.
    If you come over just ask for Rob or Neil .

    I didn't know it was on there to be honest. I have done the sporting clays course down there but never realised Sywell catered for that too. I'll come over and have a look

    Just like to say a big thank you to all who welcomed me at Kibworth today, especially Greg who showed me round the course and very kindly allowed me to steal a glove from him. Had a great day which I thoroughly enjoyed. I'll be coming along to some more events in the future.:)
