    Seeing as it fires two shots at once I'd expect your score would be pretty low :D

    BFTA Rules says... "Only one shot is allowed at any one target" so I reckon that rifle would fall foul of that.

    You have to ask how something like this ever sees the light of day unless it's sponsored by a pellet manufacturer...o_O

    I think it would be one shot with two pellets ?

    One shot per trigger release?

    Time for a legal debate.....

    Martin - you have stumbled on the answer - get one with eight barrels!!

    I wonder if you could get different pellets to hit each other in flight?
    Cant see it being any use other than some fun 'experiments'

    It surely fires one shot but two projectiles. If the rules say one shot at each target it would
    be well within the rules.

    Yep, if you fired two shots your second one would be counted as an attempt and so it would be a miss. So you'd have to kit every target you aimed at to even come off with 1/2 the points on the course. :D

    It says full power - 11.5 each pellet?

    Which would be better - side by side for wind or under and over for range ....

    Well.. If You can take selectable shot from one of 2 barrels, and zero them for 2 different distances, then you can cover almost whole distance with minimum drop.. ;D
    Could be the same as using 2 rifles, one zeroed f/ex @15Y and second @35Y.. ;D

    by the way.. Is anywhere in rules said that I can only use one rifle @ comps?
    Or I can for example use 2 springers in .177 with different "zero" ?

    Might be interesting on a HFT course..... you could plate AND knock down the target at the same time???

    Wonder which shot you'd even zero against as they would liely be some distance apart... Probably not amazing grouping from either barrel anyway?

    How about a single barrel, but two scopes mounted one on top of the other.
    The rules say scopes cant be adjusted for HFT, but does it say you cant have more than 1....

    Barry McGraw tried mounting a low power scope ontop of his high power scope specifically for standers. It worked, sort of but I don't think he perservered with it for long...;)
