    hy guys and gals, firstly let me introduce myself, I am 51years young and been hunting with air rifles for over 40years, I currently own a couple of daystates an hw100 and also an AAs410, can I just say I joined my first FT club last sunday and had one of the most enjoyable days ever, a cracking bunch welcomed me and made my day very enjoyable indeed, I wanted to learn more and hopefully shoot comps next year2016, I did not realise what a fantastic sport FT/HFT was, looks like I have missed out on a fantastic sport for years,
    can I just say hello to you all and I look forward to joining in the conversations and certainly learning my new trade,
    one thing I will say is I will strive to be the best I can in the sport and am looking forward to the learning curve
    many thanks

    Bob

    hy paul, thanks for your reply, yes , I look forward to shooting Byley, its a great venue in a stunning wood but most of all , I could not have been made more welcome, I am at the moment undecided as to what rifle to use but I,m thinking of using my Hw100 and getting a gary cane stock for it, I also have an air range which is sinfully accurate after spending hours to find the right pellet,so I,m basically undecided what rifle to use, I,m even considering buying a new steyr , the one thing I am certain of is I,m really looking forward to the 3rd jan , I cant make the 20th dec due to work commitments but I will certainly be there on the 3rd jan

    Hi Bob , if you have several rifles you could always set one up for HFT and one for FT ...It is sometimes hard to fit both into a busy lifestyle but both styles are very addictive , and as you say , club members all around the country will go out of their way to help and advise ...We shoot HFT at Kingsley Moore , near Cheadle Staffs (shooting dates posted on this forum ) so if you have a free Sunday come along and enjoy ...

    Cheers
    Ian
