    I have asked this question before but would be interested in what the answer would be having a predominant membership of HFT'ers ;)

    Regardless of shooting disciplines how many of you use one rifle for everything ?

    Me personally I have the following :

    MPR for hft
    S400 for hft
    S300 hunting
    AA Prosport ... that stays in the cupboard never getting used and only comes out when it needs a polish or when I take it to the club to get back to basics . :D
    I also have a few guns that make me giggle like a child that are simply for the grin factor!

    Anyway I was thinking of getting rid of the lot and keeping the MPR although I change my mind like the wind .........:confused: what was the thread about , ah yes ' do you weigh your pellets ' . lol

    I used to use the MPR for hunting Dave up untill i put the Gary Cane stock on it, it's far to heavy to use now so i bought the MK 4 for a hunting rig.
    If you shoot the MPR with a silencer then you may as well just get rid of the bling & use the one (keep the prosport though)

    Actually thats a very good idea Steve , I may have to borrow one of your guns to show the custom stocks though :D Although I find the MPR unusually LONG :eek: at just over 16ft it's certainly a very accurate rifle even with the added 8 foot silencer . lol
    If I get the chance I will swap stocks/actions/scopes and set the mpr up as my only hft gun down the club ... then shoot like a plum at the Interclub . :rolleyes:

    Missed it's
    I bought an0.22 AA s410c for hunting, although its had one hft outing, which was a winner (my 1st HFT):D
    A 0.177 AAtx200hc for hft
    Daystate mk3 ftr for hft
    A 0.177 HW100 S as a backup/spare for the boy ,hft gun, but its so slick and quiet it'll replace the S410c ,I expect.
