    Just a quick hello from me, ft is my interest and am new to the sport, looking to pick up tips and suggestions from the 'wise ones' amongst you
    Trying to find my way through the tons of information and opinions that are available on equipment
    For me, this is really a new outdoor hobby, I've shot at two wfta clubs Castleton and Quarry
    Great membership at both clubs, very friendly and so helpful, looking forward to 'learning lots more'

    Thanks Simon, it's Gordon, member at Castleton, I'm away for 29th and am sorting out what is likely to be my next scope and would obviously like to get used to that before comp.
    I enjoy ft and comp is not a priority for me just yet, but it's what I will want to join so will keep in touch
    Cheers!

    That would make you 50801 Gordon Ford then?


    As per the other thread, I would only look at, Falcon T50, 10- 50 BSA or Big nikko if you intend t use it in comps and actually want it to range find 100%.
