    Hi ,I've already been trawling through this forum and trying to soak up all the information I can so I thought it was about time I introduced myself I've been interested in airguns since I was a young lad mainly plinking in the garden with my old airsporter and webley hurricane .
    I recently bought a hw97 and not content with plinking in the garden it has got me into thinking of having a go at hft.
    I think I,ve found a good place here to learn , I'll try not to ask stupid questions:eek:

    Welcome

    Welcome aboard mate. I know how you feel so much info around you dont know which way to turn.
    However HFT is the best shooting sport going. I tried it 3 years ago and have not looked back since
    so many laughs and so many great people, get your self down to a local club and have a go, you wont be disappointed.

    All the best.:D:D

    If you want to try HFT or FT the place to try it is Springfield ARC near chipping ongar . the club does both . with a permanent course out to try it on . springfield will only be about 30 mins away from you . for a map of the clubs around go to ETL.FTC . co and click on winter league . this will take you to a list of the clubs and maps in the SEFTA area. cheers HOLLY:)
